This is a review of the Mustard Octeaopus Tea Strainer
So its a known fact octopus realise ink as a defence mechanism well this little octopus or should I say "octeaopus" likes to provide tea but in a happy way.
This little octopus is very cute, in a light blue colour and big round large body compared to its tentacles. He is made of silicone that is classified as food safe, it also has a stainless steel chain attached to it for ease of putting in and out of your tea and attaching to your tea cup.
To use simply unscrew the top of the octopus, fill with your preferred amount of loose tea and screw back on. Your little octopus is very easy to clean and can be popped into the dishwasher.
What I really like about this little octopus is the effect it provides is almost lifelike as I said previously about octopus and their ink you do the essence of this when your tea is brewing. Now it does take a little while and this is becuase the holes in the octopus are small and are all located right at the bottom. However if you are a bit of a chatterbox over a cup of tea then your not really going to notice the slight delay. I found that it worked best holding the octopus up to the middle of the cup while in the water provided the best diffusion of loose tea.
