Why Use a Tea Infuser?
We all have different preferences to how we like our tea - some like it strong, some like it weak, some like a big mug, others like a teapot or a dainty teacup. Using a tea infuser means you can brew as much or as little tea leaves as you desire.
Using a tea infuser is also an environmentally friendly alternative to most tea bags! You can empty your used tea leaves straight into the garden or compost. While Tielka's tea bags are 100% plastic-free and made from plant-based fibre, loose-leaf tea will always be the best option when it comes to saving the earth's precious resources. That's why we love a tea infuser as an option for brewing loose-leaf tea.
Why Does a Tea Infuser Need a Lid?
It's not just for keeping your tea hot while it brews! Did you know that some of the tea-goodness evaporates in the steam while it is brewing? Using a lid ensures all the health-giving essential oils that would otherwise evaporate stay in your delicious cup of tea.
It's also perfect for holding your tea infuser after your tea has finished brewing. No one wants tea leaking over their desk or table! Simply stand your tea infuser on the upside-down lid to avoid any pesky leaks.
What is the Difference Between a Tea Infuser and a Tea Strainer?
Good question! Effectively tea infusers and tea strainers are the same items, however, it's how they function that makes them different. When brewing leaves in a teapot, once the tea is ready to serve, tea is poured through a tea strainer to stop leaves dropping into your cup. On the other hand, a tea infuser sits in your cup or teapot while it is brewing with the leaves inside and then removed from the cup or teapot once brewing is complete.
Perfect for Iced Tea
With Tielka's tea strainer, you can brew iced tea easily! Put your loose leaf tea leaves in a small amount of boiling water in a mug or teapot, cover with the lid and brew. Remove the tea infuser and add cold water and ice. Delicious!
