Which is the best tea infuser to buy?2021-03-05T21:58:19+11:00
We are often asked which tea infuser is best for loose leaf tea? With so many choices it is easy to end up with a kitchen draw full of tea infusers that are not used. Our choice is a basket infuser with a fine mesh. The reasons are:
1) It has multiple uses. It can be used in a cup or teapot, eliminating the need for multiple tea infusers for different tea occasions.
2) It suits almost all types of tea – black tea, green tea and herbal tea. A basket with a fine mesh will ensure a clean cup of tea with minimal tea sediment.
3) They make it very easy to empty your used tealeaves into the compost or bin and are very easy to rinse out after use.
3) Finally and we think most importantly, a tea basket will allow the tea to move while brewing. Many infusers do not allow the tea to move, a critical steep in the brewing process.
How do I make the perfect pot of tea?2021-04-23T22:49:43+10:00

Here’s how to make a pot of classic black tea:

1. Pre-warm your teapot with hot water. Tip the water out after a few minutes.
2. Fill your kettle with fresh cold water from the tap (boiling water a second time will result in a flat cup of tea due to the loss of oxygen).
3. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup e.g. four cup pot = 4 heaped teaspoons.
3. Pour the boiling water into the pot and steep your tea for 3-5 minutes.
4. Gently rock your teapot from side to side to ensure a well balanced blend.
5. Remove the basket infuser (if you have used one).
6. Pour & Enjoy
