I brewed some chai in mine and now the silicone (I think?) valve bits smell of cinnamon and ginger, which can bleed into other teas I try to brew. Normal cleaning (warm, soapy water) isn't really helping. Help?

I accidentally left wet leaves in the base and now the strainer is a little moldy. Hours do I clean it? Am I just resigned to buying a whole new item since I can't get a replacement filter?

I just got it and I am wondering, how do you detach the bottom to get to the filter to put the tea in or do you just add it to the container and add hot water to it? This didn't come with instructions

Before I purchase one I would like to know if it comes apart for cleaning. I purchased one similar from a company who no longer is in business. I love it but am looking for a new one.

I have this product and it works ok to brew the tea, but once I release the tea into the cup, the last bits of liquid always leak out the bottom. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?

How does this work for tea with tiny particles? I have a few cheap tea infusers that the small pieces of tea, especially rooibos, just float straight out of the holes into my mug. Want to make sure this won't happen with this.
