Are ball tea infusers good? Balls and baskets are the two most common types of tea infusers. Balls aren’t great for fine tea because “they’re too constricting,” says Choe.
What is the best type of tea strainer? Best Overall: Finum Stainless Steel Mesh Brewing Basket
It’s large enough for tea leaves to diffuse into every nook and cranny of your mug, and its micro-fine mesh traps in the smallest tea particles. The mesh is even fine enough to brew coffee. According to our tester, this tea infuser surpassed all expectations.
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.
