Stainless steel tea infuser
Why avoid tea bags and switch to a tea infuser?
Latest research has shown that most tea bags contain plastic, which helps the bag keep in shape when placed in water. Therefore, microplastic particles get released into our tea.
Also, because of this plastic component, most tea bags are not biodegradable.
What you can do instead, is to buy loose tea leaves and use a stainless steel infuser to brew your tea. Buying tea leaves in bulk is usually more economical than packed tea bags and a stainless steel infuser will eliminate plastic contamination.
It is very simple to use, just fill the heart with the loose tea leaves of your choice and place straight in your mug full of hot water!
