How to use a tea strainer
At Adams + Russell, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy a fresh cup of loose leaf. A strainer is an easy way to enjoy a delicious brew as well as creating a traditional British afternoon tea experience. With this device, you don’t have to venture out to your nearest cafe for a fresh brew.
Just follow these simple steps…
- Fill the kettle with fresh water and put on to boil.
- Grab your favourite teapot and mugs.
- Use one heaped scoop of loose leaf per mug in the pot.
- Pour in the freshly boiled water into the pot and stir.
- Leave to brew with the lid on.
- Place the strainer over the mugs and start pouring your beverage.
- Sip and enjoy!
Tea infuser vs strainer – what’s the difference?
Although they sound pretty similar, for tea fanatics these two devices are very different. An infuser is usually immersed in the hot water, whereas a strainer is not.
The loose leaf is put in the infuser and it is then placed in hot water, perhaps being stirred to encourage infusion. Once brewed, the infuser is removed, and the beverage is ready to enjoy.
A strainer isn’t immersed into the hot water and is simply placed on top of the mug. The drink is poured through this device to prevent the loose leaf from getting into the beverage.
Neither device is better than the other, and it depends what you are looking for from your brewing experience.
If you are hosting guest, friends or family, a strainer is a nice touch and creates a relaxing afternoon tea environment.
If you are brewing alone and don’t want to use a teapot, you may prefer an infuser.
