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.
Which one of these is your favorite? I have many more but thought these would be a great way to start sharing some of what I have in my collection. Don’t forget to comment for Comments for a Cause and there is still time to enter my book giveaway by clicking here.
