The most efficient way to make tea is to use a strainer. We have several stainless steel strainers for tea pots, tea for one sets but also for mugs.
You simply put the loose tea in the strainer, put the strainer in the tea pot or mug and then add hot water. At the end of the recommended steeping time you take the strainer out and can enjoy your tea.
This way the tea can float about in the strainer, the leaves will unfold and release their taste and flavour.
