Q: Is the Loose Tea Infuser detachable?

A: Yes, you can fully detach the loose tea infuser and use your SoleCup as a regular coffee cup.
Q: How fine are the holes on the tea infuser?
A: The SoleCup Loose Tea infuser has very fine holes to allow the tea to infuse while minimising the amount of tea leaves in the water.
Q: How do I use the infuser on the SoleCup Loose Tea Travel Mug?

Q: Can I use the infuser for ground coffee?
A: The infuser is primarily designed for loose tea. However, some of our customers enjoy using their infuser for ground coffee as the perforations are very fine.

A: The 12oz SoleCup will fit 340ml of liquid inside, it’s ‘tall’ at Starbucks or ‘medium’ at Costa. The 18oz SoleCup holds 510ml so it’s more suitable for a large or ‘grande’. If you’re stuck let the barista know your cup is 12oz or 18oz and they’ll be able to guide you on sizes.
