... THE HEART OF TEA
Tea infuser in 18/10 stainless steel mirror polished.
The Tea infuser You, designed by Miriam Mirri has enriched the family of the objects that have hearts as its icon of reference. On the one hand, the conical shape and elongated of You facilitates filling and emptying the contents, on the other hand it makes the Tea infuser suitable to be used with any mug. Its tip, which could easily become clogged, is solid while the perforations begin at the empty portion to facilitate emptying it after use.
