Here are some creative tea infuser designs! The tea infuser (often called a teaball or tea maker, and sometimes a tea egg) gained popularity in the first half of the 19th century. By the time of Queen Victoria, no respectable British household would be without one. However, some argue that when you use a tea infuser, tea cannot flow freely as it traps much of the flavor between and in the leaves. So you should only fill an infuser half full leaving some spaces for the leaves to swell.
Common shapes for infusers include spherical, conical and cylindrical, but usual things doesn’t interest pandas. That’s why we’ve picked 15 unique and creative tea infusers!
