Our Mesh Tea Ball is a perfect way to brew loose tea. The mesh infuser measures 2 inches in diameter. It is ideal for brewing either a single cup of tea or a small pot of tea (2 cups). We do not recommend use this small tea ball for larger volumes of tea since there must be sufficient room for the loose leaves to unfurl in the tea ball. Our infusers are made with USFDA approved 18/8 stainless steel ensuring a rust free infuser. A surprise teapot-themed fob makes this infuser even more attractive. It is a great gift when paired with assorted loose teas.
