Eeek- No Tea Balls, please





In my travels, I noticed that if I bring up loose leaf tea- its inevitable that someone will bring up the Tea Ball! Ah, dreaded- little metal object that is lost amongst other gadgets in your junk drawer. Folks, it constricts the tea leaves, not allowing them to unfurl properly! Tea balls get in the way of releasing the true essence of a tea leaf. I know, you only thought I talked about wine in this crazy manner. I am now on a mission to encourage and convert loose leaf tea drinkers to go ahead, launch that tea ball into the gadget abyss, and confidently move onto the tea infuser. You will never go back! Try this

OK, OK. Were you checkin' out my junk drawer the last time you visited? Obediently, out it went. Anyway, I'm well stocked now with easy to use and proper unfurl-enhancing tea baskets which gently hold the leaves with the respect they deserve. RBD

I totally agree - I usually use a loose leaf teapot with infuser in the mornings but if I want a quick cup of tea I love this loose leaf tea cup infuser my friend got me. No Tea Balls for me!
