How to correctly use your tea infuser

  • The tea infuser is designed for use with loose leaf teas, not teas pre-packaged in bags, cloth etc.
  • Purified water is best, but not essential for a great cup of tea.
  • Make sure all leaves are inside the ball and not sitting on the rim where the two halves close on each other. If they are, this will create a gap where leaves can escape out of the ball and into your tea.
  • To avoid harm or injury, always clip the end of the tea infuser chain on the rim or handle of your cup or teapot, as shown in the photographs. If the chain accidentally falls into the hot liquid, do not put your hands in the hot liquid to retrieve the chain. Simply use a fork to pick up the chain and lift it out of the water.
  • Place the infuser into your tea pot or cup, and pour in your desired amount of hot water, milk or other liquid. Follow the guidelines that accompany your tea for to ensure you have added enough leaves, and that you steep your tea for the correct amount of time.
  • For strong tea, add more leaves, not time. Steeping your tea for too long may cause your tea to become bitter in taste.
  • Your infuser is reusable, as it is made from 100% stainless steel – simply use, then clean with warm to hot soapy water. Allow to dry completely, and then store away for its next use. I hide mine in my mug, ready to pull out at my next tea break.


Tips on getting the most out of your tea infuser
  • Once you have placed your leaves in your infuser and BEFORE placing it in your cup or teapot, give the ball a gentle tap to allow any tiny leaf fragments to spill out.
  • Make sure your infuser can close securely. A well designed infuser will have two ways in which it closes its two halves together:
  • A pin and hole that secures the two sides of the ball together. One side of the ball will have a hole in the rim, and the other side will have a small raised pin head to fit into the adjacent hole.
  • It will also have a clasp that firmly holds them in place to ensure no leaves escape.
  • If brewing two or more teas together, follow the steeping instructions for the tea with the shortest steep time and lowest temperature.
  • If you like your tea strong, add more leaves not more time. Your tea may become bitter if left too long.
  • When making iced tea, follow the recommended guidelines that came with your tea, noting the amount, steeping time and water temperature, then pour over ice.

What to look for when buying a tea infuser

Make sure it is made from stainless steel, so that it doesn’t rust and corrode.

Has a long chain so that the infuser can sit at the bottom of a tea cup, mug or full depth of a teapot.

The diameter is wide enough to allow tea leaves to expand and flowered teas to bloom.

Contains small mesh holes to allow the water to mix and infuse with your tea and then release the infused water out.

For very fine tea leaves – the holes in the mesh need to be small enough so that even very finely ground or chopped teas won’t leave the infuser. If you do use an infuser that has larger holes, you may need to use a tea strainer before serving the tea to remove any tiny leaves that have escaped.

Design Matters. A mesh ball or sphere is the best design for a fuller infusion of the leaves as well as maintaining a firm close on the circular rum for the life of your infuser. When I started enjoying loose leaf teas, I thought the look of my infuser took precedence over design and function! I bought a cute heart shaped mesh tea infuser. No part of the rim was completely circular, so the clasp didn’t close the two sides firmly enough in place. Both sides just slid away from each other, letting all the leaves into my water. It probably worked for the first two teas I made, but I no longer trust it to make a great tea.


For the love of tea


  • Buy one for home and one for the office!
  • No need to make 5 pots of tea to suit your guest’s tea selections. Now you can confidently and quickly serve your family and friends all their favourite teas using multiple tea infuser balls.
  • Measure once, sip forever! For a perfect cuppa, carefully follow the instructions provided with your teas. As a general rule, only fill one side of your tea ball to 2/3 full for a regular cup, or near full for a large mug or extra strength cup. Leave the other half empty so that when you close it together your leaves have room to open, bloom and swell and move the infused water through the mesh.
  • Get creative – try some great organic and fruit teas that are now available at your favourite tea stores and online.
  • Need relief from a sore throat? Try steeping a mix of lemon and peppermint leaves, and if desired, sweeten with a drop of honey.
  • Sip in those antioxidants! Loose leaf teas produce these in much higher concentrations than bagged teas.
  • Immunity boosters? Try shopping online for a wide selection of organic herbal teas that are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. There are now many teas that boost your immune system and can help towards fighting off those colds and flu.
  • Options, Options! There are limitless options available to use with your tea infuser. Some of the most beneficial tea ingredients are those that are organic and packed with vitamins, flowers, herbs and other natural ingredients.
  • Buy teas and accessories in bulk to save money.
  • Go natural, Go healthy – tea is known for being a more healthier option than soft drink or coffee. And you can see all the wonderful leaves, herbs, fruits and pure ingredients that make up your loose leaf tea.
  • A tea infuser is also healthier for our environment since there is nothing to throw away with each use. Your infuser can last for many uses with the proper care.
