Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker Infuser How To and Review

Today we are going to be taking a look at the Teavana Tea Infuser
A brilliant piece of tea brewing design
The assembly is made almost entirely of transparent plastic
that is lightweight and surprisingly rigid
The hinged lid provides easy access to the main brewing chamber
The filter at the bottom pops in and out for easy cleaning
At the very bottom there is a pop up valve
Similar to the one you would find on a coffee pot
For draining the Teavana
This allows the Teavana to be placed on top of a mug
and the tea simply drains out the bottom
Bypassing and leaving the leaves behind stuck at the filter
To brew tea with the Teavana
is add approximately
one teaspoon of your favorite tea to the inside of the brewing chamber
and then pour in freshly boiled water
The advantage of using a Teavana is that the tea leaves
are allowed to freely brew inside the water
not being constricted by something like a tea bag or tea ball
This leads to a more accurate representation of the tea’s flavor
faster brewing times and a more pleasing
flavor profile overall as none of the leaves over brew
Once the tea has completed brewing
all you must do to serve it
is take the Teavana and place it on top of your favorite mug
the rim of the mug presses gently up on the pressure plate
and the hot tea is dispensed directly into your mug
there is nothing more satisfying than watching a Teavana slowly drain
delicious freshly brewed tea into a mug
Once the tea is drained into the mug it is ready to enjoy
Cheers!
There are two main flaws with the Teavana
The first is with the filter
it is extremely hard to snap in and out, especially for someone with bigger hands
The second is the plastic tends to discolor over time
as you can see on the left, I have a Teavana that I have used for several months quite heavliy
and the other one is a new one
as you can see it stains and picks up the color of the tea
this is especially problematic with darker teas such as black teas
However all this to say I still love the Teavana
it infuses the tea nicely
it is fairly easy to clean up
and overall does a great job
If you are interested in purchasing a Teavana

Tea Infusers Buyers’ Guide

What is a tea infuser?

A tea infuser is a device used to make tea. Loose and dried tea leaves are placed inside a tea infuser for steeping and brewing. Then the infuser is placed into a mug or teapot which is full of hot water. This is often called a tea maker, tea ball or even sometimes a tea egg. The tea infuser became very popular at the beginning of the 19th century because of its portability and convenience. Tea infusers help the person avoid fannings, broken leaf teas and bitter teas. Some tea infusers are removed from the pot after some time, while other “shut-off” infusers can be left in the pot once the brewing is finished. Infusers are used, as loose tea provides a richer flavor when compared to teabags.

How does tea infuser work?

Tea infusers gained its popularity because of its convenience and straightforward method of use. Basically, a tea infuser works very similarly to a teabag. The loose tea leaves of choice are placed inside the tea infuser, then the whole infuser is placed into a cup or teapot of hot water. The infuser is surrounded by small holes in the metal or the mesh that are on the area which keeps the tea leaves secured inside. The water flows in and out spreading the flavor of the tea. Most tea infusers come with a chain or handle attached which helps with removal once the steeping process is complete. Depending on which type of infuser you are using, the process may vary. Each one works slightly differently however they all follow the same simple steps. Please keep reading the guide to familiarize yourself with the steps.

How to use a tea infuser?

Firstly, start by determining how much tea you want to make. The general rule for each cup of tea is one teaspoon of tea leaves. But, as long as your infuser isn’t jammed with tea leaves, you are on the right path. Then place the tea infuser into your cup or teapot and pour in the hot water. Let your tea infuser do it’s magic for a few minutes. For full-leaf loose white or green tea allow infusion for 2-4 minutes and 3-5 minutes for full-leaf loose black tea. Full-leaf loose oolong and red/herb tea require more time, around 5-7 of steeping. When the right amount of time has passed, you can remove your tea infuser and let it drip for a few seconds. Let your tea chill slightly, and enjoy.
