Why use a tea infuser?
Brewing with loose leaf is an enriching experience that allows you to truly appreciate the aromas of your brew.
In order to get the full flavour from tea, the leaves need room to uncurl and expand. In a bag, they are constrained and sometimes weighed down by the paper of the bag.
Loose leaves have plenty of room to naturally unfurl and release their full flavour and aroma.
Another benefit of using an infuser rather than bags is that loose leaf is usually much better quality. If you’ve ever split a teabag, you may have noticed it is more of a powdery consistency. However, the leaves in loose leaf are much larger and look like defined leaves.
This produces a much more refined and higher quality flavour. More care is often taken when processing loose leaf as it is more delicate.
How to use a teapot with an infuser…
Although it may seem intimidating, brewing with loose leaf is much easier than you might think. Here are the 6 simple steps:
- Make sure your pot is clean and take off the lid.
- Scoop in the loose leaf tea (as a guide use one scoop per mug).
- Boil the kettle and allow the water to cool for a couple of minutes (boiling water may give a bitter taste).
- Pour the hot water into the infuser.
- Allow to steep. This could take anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes. Black tea usually takes a couple of minutes, where as a fruity infusion may take longer.
- Once brewed, take out the infuser or pour into a mug to prevent over brewing.
How to clean a teapot – using baking soda and removing stains
We recommend thoroughly washing your pot after each use to maintain good hygiene and to prevent a build up of product. Old drink residue can affect the taste of your brew and give an undesirable bitter flavour.
For regular washes in between uses, clean the product with hot soapy water.
If there is a build up of residue, try a few tablespoons of baking soda and boiling water in the pot. Leave this for up to an hour and the dirt will easily come off.
