Tea Ball

Tea Ball

Tea balls can be very useful in classic teapots that do not have a built-in infuser. They have a small chain that allows the tea to be easily removed from the pot the moment it has reached the perfect brew. The entire pot can then be enjoyed with tea at its perfection.

It is best to choose the largest tea ball that will fit in the pot. The tea leaves can then naturally separate and freely move to infuse the water. We stock a variety of sizes with diameters between two and three inches. Tea balls can be used many times and can be washed in a bath of bicarbonate of soda to remove any built-up tea stains.
