Tea Infusers are an essential piece of equipment in any tea lover’s pantry. Especially for the lovers of loose-leaf tea brewed in their favourite cup or mug, a beautiful Tea Infuser is a must-have.
Simply pop your Tea Infuser into your cup or mug, place a scoop of your favourite tea inside and brew for the desired length of time and enjoy!
Free shipping is available for all orders over $70. Alternatively, pop into one of The Tea Centre's 9 tea shops located in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT.
Infusers keep your tea leaves contained as they neatly steep in your cup or your teapot.
At the Tea Centre, we understand the ritual tied to your cup of tea, and we are conscious of providing the highest quality teawares to compliment your tea drinking experience. We offer a variety of elegant yet functional pieces to compliment your style.
Do you need a Teapot Infuser?
Some teapots will come with their own basket infusers; however, sometimes basket infusers can be purchased separately. If purchasing a basket infuser for your teapot, just remember to measure the diameter of the opening and check whether the lid will be able to sit back on the teapot once an infuser is sitting inside (basket infusers are only available in-store at The Tea Centre – not online).
The other alternative is an enclosed infuser, which usually has a chain that can be attached to the handle of a teapot as it sits inside. Chains of these infusers are fine enough that the teapot lid is usually able to sit unencumbered by the chain. The feature to consider when buying one of these infusers is the size. It needs to be big enough to hold however many teaspoons of tea leaves your teapot requires, keeping in mind also that they will expand. Additionally, remember the diameter of the opening to your teapot to ensure that the infuser is not too wide and will actually be able to get inside.
Do you need Cup or Mug Infusers?
Single serve infusers for cups/mugs are incredibly varied. Some come with a handle or a chain, some float, some are basket-like. As a result, some may be easier to rinse out than others, some may hold small tea leaves more effectively, or some might just look nicer in general.
Serious tea drinkers may prefer the deeper, basket-like mug infusers — these allow tea leaves to expand fully and move around more, are perhaps the least fuss to clean, and some styles even come with a lid to keep your tea warm as it steeps. But really, when it comes down to it, all infusers will generally get the job done.
Do you need a Handy Brew Tea Maker?
The Handy Brews (also called Perfect Brew) is one of the more elaborate infusers on the market. More teapot-like or jug-shaped in appearance, the Handybrew in fact dispenses tea from its base through a patented filtration system. Not quite a teapot, but an infuser unto itself, the Handy Brew was designed to get the most out of your favourite tea leaves as well as being very easy to clean.
Are DIY Teabags & Tea Socks right for you?
Teabags, filter bags, infuser bags, paper pouches, whatever you want to call them, are a great way of creating the convenience of a teabag using the quality of a loose leaf tea. Once you’re done infusing, simply dispose of them thus avoiding having to clean an infuser and because they’re biodegradable, they make an eco-friendly addition to any compost pile. The only thing to consider would be how these bags need to be sealed before use. Some are self-sealing, whilst others may require a clip to keep the bag closed.
Tea socks are a larger option more suited to teapots and are reusable as opposed to tea bags. They also make a great tool for cooking as many people also like to use them for steeping various aromatics to infuse broths and the like.
