Tea Pots, Tea Infusers, Cups & Mugs
& Accessories

A tea infuser performs the same function as a tea bag.

The infuser is placed in a cup or pot of hot water, allowing the tea to brew without loose tea leaves spilling into the pot or cup.

A small infuser generally holds enough loose tea to brew one cup of tea.
A large infuser holds enough loose tea for multiple cups.

Infusers vary in size and shapes.
