Finum Brewing Basket Review

February 20, 2017
finum brewing basket review

The brewing basket by Finum is hands down one of the best infusers to use for steeping loose leaf tea.

With over eleven hundred reviews on Amazon and an average 4.7 star rating, the Finum brewing basket is one of the most trusted and widely used steepers.

Its large capacity allows plenty of room for steeping a wide range of teas. Certain types of oolongs, green, and black teas have large leaves that unfurl when they steep in hot water. A tea infuser that allows plenty of room for these leaves to unfurl is the key to brewing a great cup of tea.

Along with its spacious room for leaf expansion, the Finum basket is also built from very fine stainless steel mesh. This makes for an excellent tea infuser to use when brewing certain types of fine teas, such as rooibos and yerba mate.

Not only can the Finum brewing basket be used to brew a wide variety of teas, its small and compact shape allows for a quick and easy cup of tea while at home or at the office.

The Perfect Tea Mug by DAVIDsTEA Review

perfect glass tea mug by davidstea review

I really believe there is a must-have item every tea lover should own in order to enjoy the best cup of tea possible…

… A perfect tea mug of course!

The perfect tea mug by DAVIDsTEA is quite possibly one of my favorite mugs to use for tea.

Last December when I was blogging about the 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar , I used my perfect tea mug every single day for every tea sample that I drank and blogged about.

While I’ll be the first skeptic to judge whether a product is actually perfect, because it rarely ever is, this tea infuser mug comes pretty darn close.

I find they’re one of the easiest ways to enjoy loose leaf tea, and they’re wonderful for a range of different tea lovers. Whether you’re a casual or seasoned tea connoisseur, every tea lover should have at least one perfect tea mug. Continue Reading

Tea Ball Review: A Tea Lovers Best Friend?

January 18, 2016
mesh tea ball

When it comes to the question of which tea infuser to use in order to make the best cup of tea, there are so many options to choose from. Tea ball infusers, strainers, novelty infusers, travel mugs, to glass teapots. Which do you choose?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer.

Perfect tea mugs are great for enjoying tea at home, teapots are excellent for brewing several servings of tea at once, and travel mug infusers are a must for enjoying loose leaf tea on to go.

What is easily overlooked is an infuser that can be used in a variety of different ways without needing a separate product for each purpose. Wouldn’t it be nice to use one tool to enjoy loose leaf tea at home, at work, or on the go?

A mesh tea ball can achieve just that. Continue Reading

Scoop n Slide Infuser Review

scoop n slide infuser

It’s been a while since I’ve been inside a DAVIDsTEA and now I remember why.

I spend way too much money in there.

I’ll admit the reason I went recently was to purchase one item, which was a cup of tea, so I could have one of their cool DAVIDsTEA Halloween cups!

What was supposed to be one purchase, turned into me picking up seven items, putting back three (not willingly may I add), and leaving the store with four.  Although it was hard to put back the three items, I left with four really neat products, one of them being the scoop n slide infuser.
