Tea Tongs

Tea Tongs

Tea tongs can be used to enjoy the quality and taste of loose tea in a single cup. The tea ball can be easily filled and the tongs allow quick and easy removal of the loose tea.

It is the nature of tea to be savoured slowly. Making a tea in a traditional tea pot sets the stage for the calming custom of enjoying tea. However, life does not always allow us to take tea this way. Tea tongs are the next best substitute. When using the tongs, allow the tea to steep naturally by avoiding stirring - this mimics the natural movement of tea in a pot.
