Benefits of a tea sieve vs a tea ball.  

What is a Tea Sieve?

A tea ball infuser is used inside the teapot, and the tea sieve is used outside the teapot.

A tea sieve which is usually preferred by loose leaf tea connoisseurs, it is a eye appealing addition to pour the tea. This pouring the tea into the sieve allows the tea drinker to view the color of the tea, to ensure the tea is fully brewed  

When using a tea sieve the loose tea is added to the teapot.  This allows the loose leaf tea plenty of room in the teapot to expand, and bloom the tea leaves to the full flavor which they offer. The tea sieve is used by placing it over the teacup or mug and pouring the tea into the tea sieve which captures all the loose leaf tea and small particles, yet allows the the tea to pass through to the cup. 

A tea ball, though it may be available in many shapes and sizes, is used to infuse the tea in the teapot. Most tea balls will have a screw-like mechanism, or a clasp, to ensure the loose leaf tea is contained in the tea ball.  Simply open the tea ball up and place the loose tea into the ball.  The teaball should be large enough to let the tea float freely within the tea ball.  The leaves will need ample room to unfurl (expand) in order to allow maximum flavor from the loose tea which is being brewed.   

How to Brew a Flawless Cup of Tea
Have you been brewing tea for years but can't seem to find just the right way to brew? Or maybe you are new to teas and infusions and want some guidance. Either way, you've come to the right place! Try our easy, fool-proof method on how to brew a flawless cup of tea!

Step 1: Get your tea and cold water prepared.
Your tea might already come in teabags. If you have bulk herbs or loose leaf tea (like in the second picture), you will need a tea ball strainer or reusable tea bag to put the leaves into for straining. The amount of water should reflect how much tea you want to drink, plus a little extra. If you make too much, you can always store the rest in the fridge for some iced tea later.

 

Step 1: Get your tea and cold water prepared.

Step 2: Preheat your teapot.
Boil enough water to fill your teapot one and one half times. Pour the hot water into the teapot and swish it around in order to heat the teapot up. Once the teapot is pre-heated, pour out the used water. Many people do not do this, but without doing this step, your tea becomes lukewarm quickly. This will keep your tea hotter for much longer.

Step 2: Preheat your teapot.

Step 3: Measure out your tea.
Measure one teaspoon (1 tsp.) of loose tea for every cup you plan to pour, plus one for the pot. Trust me on this... it will make a difference! To brew a stronger tea, add a few extra teaspoons. 

Step 3: Measure out your tea.Step 4: Boil the water.
For black teas, bring the water to a full boil. Remove the tea kettle from the heat as soon as the water begins to boil. Boiling all the oxygen out of the water will flatten the tea's flavor. For more delicate green teas, remove the tea kettle from the heat before the water begins boiling, at 165-170 degrees F (74-77 degrees C). You can also 

Step 4: Boil the water.

Step 5: Pour a small amount of hot water on the tea leaves.
Before steeping, pour a small amount of the hot water over the tea leaves to allow them to bloom (open up) and release some of their bitter tannins. Drain immediately.

Step 6: Fill the teapot with boiling water.
With your tea already in your teapot, fill the teapot with the boiling water. Keep the spout of the kettle close to the teapot while you pour so the water does not cool as you pour it in. Cover the teapot and leave the tea to brew. See our tea brewing times chart below for the best times for your type of tea.

Step 6: Fill the teapot with boiling water.

Step 7: Pour yourself a cup of tea.
When the tea is done steeping, pour yourself a cup. Avoid keeping the leaves in contact with the hot water as over-brewed tea will become bitter and unpleasant.
