Tea ball. Tea strainer. Tea infuser. There are many names for a similar item and today on Teapot Tuesday I thought I would share a few of my own fun tea infusers.
A tea infuser is an essential part of brewing loose tea which is my tea of choice. Some teapots come with their own little baskets that sit down inside the teapot that allow the leaves to steep once the hot water is poured over. Some teapots have little strainers that are built into the spout of the teapot itself which allow the water to be poured out but the tea leaves stay inside the pot.
But many teapots need some type of infuser to hold the tea while it steeps.
These infusers range from the functional ball that my mom always used to the more whimsical type that I am sharing with you today.
