ugh... I don't feel like reading all this, but my suggestion would be to put the tea loose in the teapot, and pour it out THROUGH wire mesh into your cup :wink:

Lazy Rabbit... He said he doesn't want to do that. For the small teapots, it's not easy to get the leaves back in the pot.

By the way, it worked - as well as the basket straight filteredness-wise. Yay!

I just tried making loose leaf tea for my mom with my Japanese teapot, which turned out bad because the leaves immediately cloged the spout.

So I just tried cutting out a mesh of a strainer, and stuffing it up the spout, and it would not stay. How did you get yours to stay?

I cut it into a human-eye shape (wide oval tapering to points) about 1/4" taller than the inside opening (which had a slight lip) and poked in the center so that the two points stuck out horizontally.

Try it.

Mine doesn't have a lip, which might be why it didn't work for me. I used the same shape and size of mesh, just it won't stick. I guess this pot will only work with an infusor.

Yeah- I guess if it is a completely flush spout you would have to either use adhesive or a VERY well cut circle of mesh. Sorry.
