Teal Perfect Infuser from DAVIDsTEA

Teal Perfect Infuser

Note: Unlike other infusers, this one includes a ceramic lid. (See 2nd image.) Ceramic lids provide much better heat-retention ability than metal or plastic lids.

Teal Perfect Infuser

Make it perfect

David wanted to make the perfect one-cup infuser. It had to be durable, yet stylish, with a curvy shape that would fit into almost any mug. It had to keep small tea leaves in place, while allowing larger teas plenty of room to expand. And it had to come with the perfect tea-steeping accessory: a sturdy lid that could double as a coaster. This sleek, stainless steel beauty does it all and more – and David couldn’t be happier.

I have to admit that at first I was reluctant to switch from tea balls and bags to this big old cup-like infuser. I think it was largely simply that it seemed so different from what I’d been used to – but I’m really glad I eventually gave it a chance.

First off, let’s talk a bit about the fact that Davids Tea have made this design kind of cross their different product range – the first one I got was for one of their large bubble teapots. But the infusers also come with their range of Nordic Mugs (and likely plenty of other things).

The greatest part is that you can use it for single servings in a mug (and not just the DT mugs; with the protruding handle and lip around the edge of the unfuser, it balances with relative ease within most mugs large enough to contain it), or for the whole teapot (providing you can fit in into said teapot.) And once in, you can hold a LOT of tea. I typically use two teaspoons whether I’m doing a cup or a potful of tea, so I don’t need a heck of a lot, but for people who use more than that, it’s great.

What’s more is that because there’s all that space in the infuser, the tea has plenty of room to expand and really brew that perfect cup. I never realized that some of my regular ball-style infusers were kind of cramping the tea and as such releasing less flavour until I started using something with a bit more space.

The infuser has plenty of holes, and is easy to wash – easier, I find, than mesh infusers, and the cup part isn’t too small that you can’t fit a proper washcloth in there to give it a good scrub. Mine does tend to look quite tarnished after a while of hand-washing only, but once done in a dishwasher, it comes out sparkling like new.

If they suddenly announced that they were discontinuing these infusers, I would likely go out and buy a couple more, just in case. I like them that much.
