This stainless steel tea infuser ball is a great way to brew loose leaf tea easily. Simply fill this ball with a spoonful of your favorite loose leaf, close it up, and steep just like a teabag. The 2.5 inch diameter gives the tea plenty of room to expand in the ball, giving you the perfect cup every time. This mesh ball is easy to clean, as well. Simply open it up, shake the used tea out, and rinse well.
