Tea Infuser Pot

Updated on January 23, 2013

What is a Tea Infuser Pot?

A tea infuser is a device for making that perfect cup of tea from loose leaf tea.

It comes from before the invention of the tea bag and is still the preferred way of making tea by many.

The original device was a ball or egg shaped metal cage that loose tea could be put in while tiny holes would let the tea steep in the hot water without letting the tea leaves out into the cup.

A more modern version though, is a tea infuser pot. This is simply a tea pot with a built in strainer for keeping the leaves in the pot and come in many different styles from stainless steel to glass.

If you love to make that perfectly refreshing cup of tea then a tea p0t with an infuser is certainly one of the best items to put on your wish list.

Primula Blossom Glass Teapot – Wide Mouthed Borosilicate Glass – 40 oz. – Dishwasher and Microwave Safe – Clear – Includes 1 Flowering Tea

This glass teapot with a capacity of 40 ounces turns the act of brewing tea into an artistic presentation. Loose tea leaves are placed into the glass infuser, hot water is added, and when the water reaches the desired color or strength, the infuser is lifted out along with all the loose leaves. A glass lid keeps the heat in, and the graceful loop handle makes the pot easy to pour. Tea flowers look beautiful in the pot, too, and work best without the infuser. Made of lightweight yet laboratory-strength borosilicate glass, the teapot won't stain and is safe for use in the microwave and dishwasher. For the tea drinker, Primula also sells a glass tea-making mug and packets of tea flowers, which are AA-grade green tea leaves and actual dried flowers that are hand-sewn into tight balls by artisans in China. After a tea flower ball is place in hot water, it will slowly sink to the bottom and unfurl into full "bloom." Some even have two different kinds of flowers that unfurl into a colorful spectacle, adding fragrance and flavor to the tea.
