as a tea lover who isn't very fond of coffee, the irony isn't lost on me.

Great job. Simple, but ingenious and effective.

Great idea, loose leaf tea is much better but I often shy away from it because it's messy.

 Good one.  A piece of nylon pantyhose works, too, if one is available, and is also more permanent.
