I am smitten with the classically modern design of the finum® Tea Control Teapot. This teapot is brilliant in design and the warmer stand provides an elegant finish when serving myself alone or when friends drop by for a "cup of tea". finum®'s new filter allows the user to stop the brewing action with a twist of the lid. Immediately the brewed tea leaves are pressed into an enclosed area of the filter and no longer sit in the perfectly brewed pot of tea. Ingenious!
The finum® Tea Pot Design
finum®'s eye-catching teapot design holds the European Red Dot Award. The Finum Tea Control is a stylish glass design that is shock resistant and made of heat-safe borosilicate glass. It reminds me of my high school chemistry class beakers we used for experiments. The glass may look delicate, but it is heavy, strong, and feels great when handled. An added feature of this teapot is the "no-drip spout" which eliminates tea stains on beautiful linens or tables.

How to Use the finum® Tea Control Filter
To control the strength and taste of your precious loose and bagged tea is simply a turn of the Finum lid.
To use the finum® Tea Control Filter, remove the lid and set aside.
Add the loose tea or tea bag to the filter.
Pour the correct temperature of hot water over the tea and slowly fill the teapot.
Insert the top into the filter and set your timer for the correct brew development of your chosen tea.
When the tea achieves the desired strength, twist the top while holding onto the sides of the filter and twist. This will push ALL the tea leaves or bags to the enclosed side of the filter preventing them from continuing to brew.
Serve the tea in your favorite cup and forget drips because this teapot doesn't drip!
Once the tea is consumed, twist the filter open again and remove the top from the filter.
Add more water and repeat the process for another perfectly brewed pot of tea.

Features of the finum® 100-Cup Size Filters with Stick
• 100 Filters + 1 Stick
• Aromatreu white paper (chlorine-free)
• With double bottom-fold.
HINT: I suggest also buying the finum® 4-Filter Stick Package so that friends can brew their own tea at gatherings. This makes a great conversation item and also saves money. Buying loose tea is less expensive that pre-made tea bags. Also the finum® Tea Filters are chlorine-free and biodegradable.
finum® offers a wide variety of filter sizes to provide each tea enthusiast the chance to enjoy their loose tea any size cup. And finum®'s paper tea filters are oxygen bleached paper and famous for its unique true-flavor filtering qualities. The tea filter bags are chlorine free and biodegradable. A double-fold bottom on each filter provides the tea leaves enough room for its flavor to fully develop.
