When you make tea from loose tea rather than using a teabag, you can take your pick from some very cute tea infusers. Simply add the right amount of loose tea leaves then immerse the tea infuser in very hot water.
How Long to Infuse Tea Leaves
The honest answer? Let it infuse for as long as you wish, depending on your personal preference. Some people like to dunk the infuser in a few times for a very mild, subtle flavour while others let the tea infuser sit in the water for 10 minutes.
It just depends how strong you want your tea to be, and also what variety of tea you are using. Even if you rarely drink tea, you might have guests who do, and then that’s when a single-serve sized tea infuser makes perfect sense!
