We love loose tea and herbal tisanes. What we don’t totally love is the standard tea ball because it doesn’t give the tea enough room to move in the hot water for steeping. When I found these glass tea steepers I was intrigued. The first time I used one I fell in love.
Simply place your tea inside the tube, pop the cork in the top, dunk it into your mug of hot water and allow it to steep as long as is appropriate for your tea blend. When it is done steeping lift it out, let it drain and set it off to the side while you enjoy every sip.
To wash the glass steeper I simply run water in it and flush out the loose tea. If a little piece gets stuck in one of the slits, run water over it or I like to use a bottle brush for a deep clean inside.
The Glass Tea Steeper makes a lovely addition to any of our mugs as a gift for a tea drinker or for treating yourself to a cozy tea ritual.
