With the growing popularity of loose leaf tea, customers are searching for a variety of tea filtering devices like mesh strainers and infusers. While most are effective, problems may arise with finer grade teas like mint or rooibos, causing leaves or leaf particles to escape into the cup or pot. The cleanup may also be time consuming, making them inconvenient for tea drinkers on the go. The German tea filter enterprise Finum invented a product to bring the convenience of a tea bag to loose leaf tea drinkers. These revolutionary filters, called Finum, combine a patented slide opening and an expanding gusset bottom. With these features the sac is easy to fill and the tea has room to properly expand. Because of its wide bottom, the sac does not require a filter stand. With Finum consumers can control the amount of tea that goes into each sac and blend teas for a custom flavor. While steeping the flap can be folded, twisted, and/or secured with the lid of the teapot.
