The pug in a mug tea infuser is one of the most adorable infusers around. This cute little pug sits on the side of your mug and infuses your favourite loose leaf tea.

This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves tea and also loves pugs. The pug infuser is roughly 3.5 inches (2.5 cm) tall and is made completely out of silicon. The pug will fit on and in most mugs with no problem at all. You can only brew one cup of tea with this but is certainly worth it if you love novelty tea infusers.

Using the infuser

As with any loose leaf tea infuser this one is super simple to use. I’ll just briefly touch on how to use it below.

  1. First pull the silicon head off of the body.
  2. Now put your favorite blend of tea into the body.
  3. Place the head back onto the body.
  4. Place into a mug and watch the pug in a mug infuse your tea.
  5. You can remove the pug or leave it on the side of your mug while you drink your tea.

Pug in a Mug Tea Infuser Instructions

The only real problem you may come across with this infuser is getting your tea inside it. The silicon body is quite thick so the hole up the top is quite small. This can make getting some types of tea inside the infuser more difficult.


The pug in a mug tea infuser is made completely out of silicon much like the Mr tea infuser. This means it will be able to take a beating and won’t heat up so much that you can’t get it out of the water.

You will also be able to easily clean this by simply putting in the dishwasher or hand washing it.

The legs and the head both connect easily and won’t fall apart when you go to take it out of the water. It gets a firm grasp of the edge of the mug so you won’t have the entire infuser falling in either.

You will also find smaller types of tea will fall through the holes as the holes are a tad large. Something like a mesh ball tea infuser may be better suited for you if you are a fan of fine types of tea.
