The Bonjour Shut Off Tea Infuser takes loose-leaf tea brewing to the next level with a removable metal infuser basket and French press-style plunger to give you full control of steeping time. The unique design makes it simple to filter your favorite tea and shut off the brewing process when you're ready. Just add 3-5 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea into the infuser basket, fill the 42 oz glass carafe with boiling water and allow the tea to steep to taste. When you want to stop the brewing process, slowly press the plunger down as you would with a French press. Thanks to the lowered glass spout and removable basket, it's easy to prepare and serve your favorite sachet or blooming tea as well. The glass carafe is dishwasher safe, but Bonjour recommends washing each component by hand to keep the unit looking new.
