This is an appreciation post for one of the greatest inventions of man kind. The over the mug tea infuser. This magnificent device is yet another method for steeping loose leaf tea. And definitely my favourite way.What it is, is essentially a cup where you put leaves and water into it to steep, then when the time is up you place the infuser on top of your mug. The bottom of the cup is a push activated strainer, and all of the water falls into your mug, leaving the used up tea leaves behind. The first time I saw an infuser I was so excited, I thought it was so cool. Right now my family has three Teaopia "Tea Masters", with the idea being one for my sister, one for my mother and one for me. But you can all guess who uses all three for herself.
