A tea infuser! If there are any discerning tea drinkers out there, I'd recommend ditching your tasteless teabags for this simple gadget. It rests on top of a mug and you simply place a teaspoon of your favourite loose tea in it, pour in boiling water, wait four minutes and a good cuppa awaits! I have been amazed at the depth of flavour of loose tea varieties and no longer purchase tea bags, especially those premium pyramid types!
I get through 10-12 mugs/day on a good day and was annoyed at the fine mesh remaining in my compost from the rotted bags.
I switched to an infuser about 3 years ago and not looked back.
I've got a taste for red bush tea over the last couple years and I now drink more of that than Assam. It's caffeine and tannin free too

When we first moved to Scotland we went to view a house in Auchtermuchty that was owned by Jimmy Shand.
I'd no idea who he was, and didn't like the house anyway.
I casually mentioned this to work colleagues the next day.
They were all in awe, and excitedly asked if we were buying the house.
I had to ask who he was, and they were all gobsmacked that I didn't know.
I explained that he might be big licks in Scotland, but in Liverpool he was unheard of.
This was just one of many occasions when I put my English foot in it.
English person: “Im going to go to London tomorrow.”
Scottish person: “How?”
English person: “By train.”
Expected answer in Scotland: “To see my sister.”
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
