Tea Strainers & Infusers
Tea balls and infusers have been used by avid tea drinkers for quite a number of centuries. Time has made them more refined and sophisticated but they still perform the very same tasks today that they did eons ago. The tea balls and infusers, usually made of metal, allow you to put some dry tea leaves into a ball that you then lower into your water to brew tea. The metal ball is usually meshed or perforated if solid to allow for the tea to actually interact with the boiling water. At the end of the brewing, the ball is simply lifted out and the tea can be poured out for drinking. With some tea balls and infusers, the ball is left hanging in the boiled brew to make sure that as much aroma and taste is taken out of the leaves. They give you the advantage of not having to buy your tea in teabags which is more expensive and messy. It also allows you to bypass straining the tea with a sieve if you do not use tea bags. Today you can get high quality tea balls and infusers in our Tea Supply store from the world leading brands like Medelco.
