there's a thread in the "other" forum (in this section, the "adagio" section) about the teastick. while i like any kind of infuser/teaball-like object over teabags, & agree that any of them are simple to clean up, i wonder (like other folks) if the teastick gives the leaves enough room to unfurl.
It does look cool and perhaps there are some applications where the teastick excels...but I would not use it for oolongs, whites, or most greens.
I simply cannot believe that the teastick gives the leaves enough room to expand, nor that there are enough holes to provide adaquate flow through the stick. A large infuser basket like RoT's or nothing at all will likely give better results in the areas of most importance...flavor and aroma.
