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.

How much does a tea infuser hold? Tea ball, spoon or silicone infusers are usually big enough for one or two teaspoons of tea leaves.
