What is a tea infuser?
Tea infusers are handy little must-have brewing tools for making the perfect cup of no-fuss loose leaf tea. At T2 these tea leaf receptacles come in many exciting and different shapes and sizes, taking their rightful place in every tea-lover’s teawares set.
Not to be confused with tea strainers used to catch loose leaf tea when you pour brewed tea from teapot to teacup, tea infusers are designed to fit snugly in your teapot, tea infuser bottle or flask, and in your tea cup. Once the tea has steeped for the recommended time, take out the tea infuser and you’re set to enjoy a perfectly brewed cuppa with no stress but perfect strain!
Made from stainless steel mesh our fun and functional tea infusers are on guard to keep all the tongue-torturing floaties out of your beautiful brew, while allowing optimum water flow for maximum lip-smacking flavour.
How much tea do you put in an infuser?
Each happy herbal and bountiful black, white or green infusion tea comes with a brewing guide which tells you how much, how long and at what temperature to brew. But we all dance to different tunes, so the amount of loose leaf tea to pop into mesh infusers is really up to you.
If you’re sipping with your besties and have your gorgeous tea-for-two designer teapot with infuser out for the party, then a couple of scoops of tea in the stainless steel tea infuser is recommended. But tea gurus who like their tea power-packed and muscled up may choose to add another scoop!
How much is a scoop, you ask? Check out our tea accessories to find one of the littlest but handiest tools of the tea-making trade. A made-to-measure T2 scoop is a good thing in a small package, ensuring the ideal amount of loose leaf tea lands in your tea infuser.
If your adventurous spirit is working its way through a variety of tantalising T2 teas in super-sampler sachet form, each sachet makes 500ml of tea, which is about two tea cups.

How to use a tea infuser travel mug?

How to infuse tea leaves?
To infuse tea leaves simply means to brew or steep them in hot water for the optimum amount of time at a specified temperature, thus creating the perfect cup of tea.
Our trendy tea infusers are to tea like sheepdogs are to farmers, herding up all the rogue tea leaves as they float randomly around in the teapot or tea cup and preventing them for making a mad dash for freedom as the tea is poured or drunk.
