Mr. Tea Infuser
A tea infuser is a device that holds loose, dried tealeaves in a mug full of steaming hot water. Tea infusers are often called a teaball, tea maker, or tea egg. Some infusers are removed once the brewing process is complete, while ‘shut-off infusers’ remain in the pot post-brewing process. If the holes in a tea infuser are too large, particles of the leaves may get loose in the tea, requiring the need for a tea strainer.
