Permanent tea filters: an easy way to brew loose tea

My own favorite way to brew loose green tea is cup-by-cup with a permanent tea filter, also known as the over-the-cup tea filter. These little babies take all of the hassle out of bulk tea.

As you can see in the pictures below, it fits right on top of your mug, with the long filter portion that holds the tea in the hot water.

Cleanup is incredibly easy (unlike when using a more elaborate device). You just turn the filter upside-down over a waste receptacle and give it a few taps to dislodge the wet tea leaves.
