This stainless steel loose tea infuser is just the right size to fit inside a mug. You can infuse your loose leaf tea directly in your cup, and when it’s steeped to perfection simply pop it on the matching tray, ready for the next infusion. It’s elegant, robust, easy to clean (simply tap the leaves out), and dishwasher safe.
When you’re using this loose leaf tea infuser, you won't need an additional tea strainer. It holds back even the finest particles of leaf.
We highly recommend using this tea infuser over a tea strainer ball or one of those tea ball clips or tubes. This is because your dry loose leaf tea needs as much room as possible to rehydrate. The best flavours come from amino acids in the leaf that dissolve into the water - for this to happen your loose leaf tea leaves need to unfurl and reveal every millimetre of surface area. If they are cramped in a teabag, tea ball, or tea tube, you can't get the best flavour from your tea.
This clever tea gadget not only fits perfectly inside a mug but can work rather handily inside some teapots.
If you happen to have a teapot made for teabags (one that doesn’t have a plate behind the spout to hold back loose leaf tea) you can pop this tea infuser inside the pot to keep the tea leaves from clogging the spout.
