Everything You Need to Know About Tea Infuser Mugs

Tea infuser mugs are mugs used for brewing tea, especially when brewing using a teapot would be inconvenient. With the right infuser, you can brew your own loose-leaf tea in the office, at home, or during your travels anytime you want. Below is everything you need to know about tea infuser mugs.

How does a tea infuser mug work?

The most common types of tea infuser mugs are spoon infusers and tea ball infusers. All infusers have small holes that prevent tea leaves from getting inside your cup. Many tea mugs also have in-built lids that can be used when you are done with steeping or as a saucer to place your infuser. They are mostly designed for loose tea leaves and are not suitable for tea dust or tea powders from tea bags.

How to use tea infuser mugs

  • Clean your tea mugs and infusers. Sometimes the material or shape of the infuser makes it hard to properly clean the holes. Therefore, you should buy infusers that can be washed easily either using a dishwasher or by hand.
  • Use fresh spring or bottled spring water to brew your tea. Avoid distilled or hard tap water since it gives the tea a flat taste.
  • Bring the water to a boil. However, it shouldn’t be too hot or too cold. Hot water ruins the tea, while cold water makes it bitter.
  • Preheat the mug but don’t preheat your infuser.
  • Put one or two teaspoons of tea leaves into the infuser.
  • Place your infuser into the preheated mug.
  • Let it steep for around 1-5 minutes, depending on the type of tea.
  • Serve and enjoy your tea.

Factors to consider when buying the perfect tea infuser mug

  • The size of the mug: buy a size that’s comfortable for you.
  • The material: you can choose between ceramics, stainless steel, or glass.
  • The type of tea you want to brew: for example, tea ball infusers and silicone infusers may be more suitable for green and herbal tea.
