I just got an order from Sweet Maria's and had them throw in one of the Clever Coffee cones. It really works well! Its very much like a Melitta or any other cone, except the Clever has a control that allows you to steep the grounds for whatever amount of time you choose before allowing it to drip out. It sits on the counter unilt you're ready to dispense, then when you place it atop a mug or carafe, it opens. Lifting the cone stops the flow.
I saw America's Test Kitchen Saturday and they should a similar gizmo for brewing tea.
