How to choose a tea strainer
• To find the right strainer or filter for your tea, you’ll have simple and more elaborate options to choose from. Quirky animal-shaped tea strainers that sit on the edge of your cup can make great conversation pieces, while a simple tea ball or infuser is ideal for everyday use.
• Consider whether you typically make a single serving of tea or a larger pot, as this will impact the size of the tea strainer that you need. Strainers are typically better than infusers for larger batches.
• Your tea preference will also impact the ideal strainer. Green, oolong, and white tea all have large leaves, which require a larger infuser as the leaves expand in hot water.
