Teastick: Loose Leaves Loosely Joined

Much to the chagrin of tea-snobs everywhere, I'll admit to using tea bags to brew tea. Yes, I know loose tea leaves are superior and more flavorful, but tea bags are just so much more convenient for a single cup of tea — brewing loose tea leaves usually require a large tea pot, and is often cumbersome and time-consuming.

Well, not any longer. The Gamila Teastick allows you to brew a single cup of tea using loose tea leaves with as much ease as using bagged tea. Simply scoop the leaves until the fill line, slide down the perforated sleeve, and let the stick steep in hot water. After a few minutes, your tea is done.
