Here are a few tea infusers that we love.
Stainless Steel Monkey Tea Infuser
A monkey has long arms. So, isn’t it natural to design a cute tea infuser that make use of its long arms? So, what we have here is a monkey tea infuser with arms to support it across the cup rim. You hook it inside the cup, pour in the hot water and your tea would be ready in a matter of minutes. It is easy to remove with the arms straddling the rim.
Made of stainless steel, it comes with a drip tray. It is compact and dishwasher safe. There are other stainless steel tea infusers too such as frog, robot and scuba diver. With many designs to choose from, all of them would make a great gift for tea drinkers with their uniqueness and novelty.
Silicone Dino Tea Infuser
Instead of stainless steel, there are also food-grade silicone tea infusers. The Baby Dino is one of them. Styled after a dinosaur with a long neck, it goes all the way down to the bottom of your cup or mug. The neck is flexible which means you can make it form to the shape of your cup.
The long neck also means it can be used for both cups and tall glasses. Just hook the head to the rim if you have a tall mug. In that sense, it is more practical compared to the monkey tea infuser above.
Couple Tea Infusers
If you are a couple and both of you are tea drinkers, obviously one tea infuser is not enough. Shown below is the Happy Platypus couple tea infusers whereby there are 2 units in a box. One is blue in color while the other is pink.
To fill in the tea leaves, you just need to open up the tummy area. Hang it over the rim on the inside using the beak as support. Made of silicone, the tea infuser is dishwasher and microwave safe. Since the Happy Platypus is a couple, it would also make a great gift for weddings and anniversaries.
Why Buy A Cute Tea Infuser
Apart from buying it because they are cute, there are also other practical reasons why a tea infuser is a must if you are a regular tea drinker. Firstly, they are reusable. You can use them again and again with your favorite tea leaves. There is less to dispose and hence, more environmentally friendly as a result.
Secondly, most of them are easy to clean and can put in the dishwasher. They are compact anyway which means it doesn’t take long to have them hand washed either. Thirdly, it could be more economical than buying disposable tea bags. Lastly, they are safe to use because these are generally made of stainless steel or food-grade silicone.
Most of these tea infusers are very affordable with prices ranging from around $8 to $15. As such, they are just too adorable to give it a miss. Get one and you will surely have people commenting on the design and cuteness.
So, care for some tea now while thinking about these cute tea infusers?
