VitaPura Loose Leaf Tea Infuser Set of 2
Stainless Steel Tea Strainer & Steeper
Being from the South I love to drink a big old glass sweet iced tea! It’s usually too hot to drink a cup of hot tea. So, I haven’t had much experience making hot tea, much less using a loose leaf tea infuser.
Stay away from Epichlorohydrin
After reading this article on Mercola.com “Plastic and Cancerous Compounds in Tea Bags—A Surprising Source of Potential Toxins” I thought I might want to try using a loose leaf tea infuser to make my tea with. Click the link and learn about things to watch for when buying tea bags, even organic tea may have a toxic tea bag. Make sure your tea bag does NOT contain epichlorohydrin.
I don’t have any loose leaf tea, but I do have organic tea in tea bags. So I cut open the tea bag and dumped the contents into the infuser baskets. The baskets are made from a high quality, rust-free 304 grade stainless steel, and have lots of very tiny holes for the tea and water to infuse.
Line up the lid and twist to lock the lid to the basket so it will stay secure and keep the loose tea inside the basket during the steeping process.
Add some hot water, adjust the temperature of the water according to the type of tea you are steeping.
Hook the cup hook at the end of the chain to the side of your glass so you can easily remove the tea infuser after the proper steeping time.
I used very finely ground tea from a tea bag, so there is a little of the “tea dust” floating in my water. It is really not that much. This is a great way to use the tea you already have without the bag.
