A high-grade borosilicate glass teapot with a removable fine mesh food grade stainless steel strainer. The strainer fits straight into the teapot or can be removed and placed directly in a mug if preferred. It is made from 304 high-grade stainless steel and is large enough for loose leaf tea to properly expand. It comes with a lid.
How to use:
Scoop 2-3 teaspoons of loose tea leaf into the teapot's strainer.
Pour water directly onto the leaf in a circular pattern to expose all of the tea leaves to the water. It's important to use a temperature controlled kettle to avoid burning certain types of tea (check brew instructions for each tea).
Allow the leaves to infuse and agitate (raise and lower the mesh infuser) to flush the leaf and increase the movement of water through the strainer.
Allow the tea to steep for the specified time (tea should not be over infused whereas herbal teas can infuse much longer).
Remove the tea infuser, compost the spent leaf, or set aside and reuse for teas that allow multiple infusions (e.g. oolong, certain green teas etc.)
Enjoy your cup of tea.
