I couldn’t live without these (i have 4). Great for use with loose leaf tea or ground coffee. The stainless steel does stain eventually but that is to be expected. Overall very functional and great for the price.
A most wonderful little product. I can now make fresh teas and have ‘real’ coffee quickly. Yes indeed, with this ‘pack of two’ you can share your joy with someone else too.
Work very well (no debris seems to go through), quick and easy to rinse clean. Just the right size for small and medium-sized mugs.

Comments from buyers
“The perfect solution. No more tea bags., The best filter out there, Simple and convenient options for using ground coffee”
Very fine gauze so no specks in the tea.
I love these and have bought them several times. We use them for filtered coffee in individual mugs.
Use my basket every day to make coffee. Some sediment gets through using espresso grind coffee but i just leave the last mouthful to avoid it.
I’ve tried so many different filters for loose tea, and apart from throw away paper filters (which are wasteful and annoying), these are the only ones i’ve found that don’t leave bits of tea leaf in the mug. I can now happily use loose tea which will probably have saved me as much by the end of the year as a pack cost me, and means i’m not putting the plastic found in most tea bags into the compost. I should also add that they are easier to clean than some i’ve tried too as there aren’t annoying seams which catch bits of tea.
Brilliant idea and easy to use, always have leaf tea now.
So easy compared to other methods for loose leaf tea. I have one for black tea and another for fruit tea.
I have been using tea bags for years, but as a drinker of black tea i have become increasingly frustrated of late with a layer of ‘scum’ on my tea, stained cups and a teapot that had to be continually cleaned out. I live in an extremely hard water area and have spent a small fortune on water filter cartridges, changing them long before they should need changing, descaling the kettle every week, but still scummy looking tea. Then somebody suggested i change to loose tea because they understood that this scum was actually due to the tea bags themselves. I had previously bought the tea tool which i still think is brilliant if you can find teabags that don’t leave residue behind. Having no means of easily emptying tea leaves from the pot i started looking around for a solution. I have found one – the finum brewing basket. The tea is crystal clear, tastes fresh and ‘alive’ and the tea leaves are easily disposed of in the rubbish bin. So a finum brewing basket and yorkshire gold loose tea have solved a long-standing problem. Being a good quality tea there is no dust to seep through the exceptionally fine mesh, so when i get to the bottom of the cup there are no dregs.
This is one of the must tool for my home and work place. It’s very durable and easy to use.
For anybody who uses loose teas and doesn’t like to get bits in their mouth this is a super item.
Well made of good quality materials. I have some brown finum baskets which i use for making filter coffee in mugs. The colours of these means i can save them for tea. They work very well and the lid, which can then be used as a stand when the basket is lifted out, is useful.
Perfect for making a single cuppa without fiddling with the cafetiere.
I had many variants of these over the years and find them invaluable for making one cup, at home and especially when travelling. With coffee a little of the grinds seeps through the mesh but so long as you don’t drink the bottom 1/4 inch or so no problem. Much easier and less messy than a cafetiere.
I’ve been using mine for a few weeks and have no complaints. I use it for herbal teas like oregano and mullein and nothing gets through this filter.
Very pleased with these baskets. They make a perfect single cup of coffee each and are so much easier to store in our caravan than my old cafetiere was. Washing them out after brewing is a breeze too.
Great to make just a cup or mug of filter coffee, i use them every morning.
I have said goodbye to lugging around coffee bodums and top of stove espresso pots. These work like a charm, both for coffee and tea.
These are quite small in size cross wise. Would advise to check measure on actual cup or glass to use with. The design could be a lot better.
Does a great job filtering even very fine tea and powdery herbs. Can hold a lot and fits nicely into a regular sized mug. Seems sturdy and washed out well. Shame its a bit plasticy, hopefully it will stand the test of time.
