Today's package in the River City Yarns Advent Box is not directly knit-related. It's something that I'd heard about and thought I would buy if I saw it in a store somewhere.
It's a reusable silicone tea bag - an infuser. To use, remove the black cover on the bottom and fill with loose tea. Reseal, then use like you would a regular tea bag. That's the River City Yarns' logo on the end of the 'string'.
I'm anxious to see how well it works. Normally I drink what I call "plain old tea", but every once in a while I'm curious about a flavored tea which often comes packaged as a loose tea. I'm hoping that there is no plastic taste infused into the tea, and I'm guessing that there won't be any.
