What is a teapot with infuser? A tea infuser is a device in which loose, dried tea leaves are placed for steeping or brewing, in a mug or a teapot full of hot water; it is often called a teaball or tea maker, and sometimes a tea egg. The tea infuser gained popularity in the first half of the 19th century.
What is the difference between a tea infuser and a tea strainer? Tea infusers are used to hold the loose tea leaves while the tea steeps. As you pour, tea strainers catch all the loose tea leaves and prevent them from getting into your teacup or teapot. Tea infusers let you steep the loose tea leaves in a teacup or teapot, allowing them to naturally infuse into the water.
Can you put a tea bag in an infuser? Yes, you can place the teabags directly in the kettle or in the provided infuser.
What is the difference between a tea kettle and a teapot? Simply put, a tea kettle is what you use to heat water for tea and a teapot is what you use to actually steep tea. You need both to make tea. You will heat water to its desired temperature in a tea kettle—either on the stove or, if it’s electric, on the counter—then pour this water into a prepared teapot.
