How to Choose a Tea Infuser – Buying Guide

When it comes to choosing a tea infuser, you shouldn’t just buy the first one you see. There are a few things that you should take into consideration so that you can brew the perfect cup of tea.

Choose From Different Materials for Different Flavor Profiles

Unsurprisingly, there are a few different material options when it comes to tea infusers. Here are a few of the most common ones you’ll find.

Stainless Steel Mesh Maintains Flavor and Steeps More Finely Crushed Leaves

Stainless Steel Mesh Maintains Flavor and Steeps More Finely Crushed Leaves
For many people, stainless steel mesh tends to be the best overall option. This is because it doesn’t add any flavors to your tea, doesn't have any potentially dangerous chemicals, and is easy to clean after use. Stainless steel infusers can be found in both basket and submersion types, so you will have a large variety to choose from.

Stainless steel can be very effective at infusing tea, but an important concern is how large the infuser holes are. If the holes are too small, the tea won't infuse correctly and it will taste weak. However, if the holes are too big, then leaves might slip through the holes and into your tea.


Finding the right-sized holes to infuse your tea without allowing leaves to escape is a tricky balance and it can be very difficult to judge this without trying the infuser for yourself. We would recommend looking at reviews before purchasing a stainless steel infuser as this will give you a better idea of how effective the infuser is.

Stainless steel is a great material for infusers. It is very easy to clean up and doesn't affect the tea's flavor. I always recommend using basket infusers versus submersion ones because they allow leaves to unfurl and infuse properly. 


The way to avoid getting tiny tea leaves falling through the strainer is to purchase good-quality tea. This means that the tea leaves and/or buds, in general, will be larger in size than what you would find inside mass-market teabags, and they should be intact.

Silicone for Fun Shapes and Colors

Silicone for Fun Shapes and Colors

When you see something is made from silicone, it's usually going to be something that's cute to look at. Silicone is highly versatile and allows tea infusers to be made in fun shapes and colors. If you want to add some personality to your tea, then silicone infusers are the best choice.


However, much like stainless steel infusers, you have to be careful with the size of the holes. The holes are often larger in silicone infusers and have a tendency to allow leaves to escape. This is because silicone infusers aren't as effective at brewing tea as steel, so the holes have to be made larger. Try to avoid silicone infusers with tiny holes as they won't infuse your tea.


If you decide to get a silicone infuser, read reviews and check the packaging to make sure it’s high-quality food-grade silicone. This should also be noted in the product description if it's the case. This is important to check as if the silicone is of lower quality, it might have a plasticky flavor or leach chemicals into your tea.

Although these types of infusers can be fun, I don't recommend them because the leaves are kept too tight within them. Tea leaves need to expand and have the most possible contact with the water to get an optimal extraction.

 
If you would still like to get one, then try to avoid using it with tea types that need a considerable amount of room to expand.

Paper Doesn’t Need to Be Washed, as It’s Disposable

Paper Doesn’t Need to Be Washed, as It’s Disposable
Paper infusers can be seen as a nice middle ground between loose leaf tea and tea bags. You can fill them up with your nice, high-quality loose leaf tea, but rather than having to wash out your infuser after every use, you can just throw the whole thing away.

When choosing a paper infuser, look for one that’s unbleached to ensure that you’re not accidentally consuming any chemicals. If you are concerned about the environment and our expanding landfills, make sure you buy one that is fully biodegradable. Many disposable teabags and infusers are actually sealed with plastic.


Something else to look out for is that some paper infusers come with a string handle and some don’t. The string makes it easier to remove the infuser from your tea once brewed, and this can especially be helpful if you're brewing your tea in a tall tumbler.

Pick Between Basket and Submersion Infusers

There are two main types of tea infusers: basket infusers and submersion infusers. Deciding which one is right for you depends largely on your preferences.

Submersion Infusers Work for Smaller Servings

Submersion Infusers Work for Smaller Servings
When using a submersion infuser, your tea is completely encased and fully submerged in the water. They’re not normally very large, so they’re ideal for small, single-serving cups.

Submersion infusers are probably the ones that you see around more often. They can come in fun shapes, such as a scuba diver relaxing in your tea. However, the cute gimmicky ones tend to be lower quality and aren’t quite as effective at steeping tea leaves.


If you choose a submersion infuser, look for an option that’s as large as possible, and be sure that the handle or chain is a good length for the cup you plan on using. You should also make sure that it can securely close so the leaves don't escape, but is easy to open so you can clean it.

Basket Infusers for Fuller Flavor

Basket Infusers for Fuller Flavor
Basket infusers sit on the top of your cup and allow the tea leaves to fully expand and steep while remaining neatly contained. Because they’re completely open on one side, basket infusers are extremely easy to clean as you can easily get a brush inside.

Generally speaking, the larger the basket is, the better the flavor will be as the leaves will have more space to spread out and infuse their flavor. We would recommend looking at baskets that are over two inches wide and deep, but if you're infusing tea in a larger cup, such as a tumbler, you may want to look at infusers that are three inches deep instead.

Basket Infusers for Fuller Flavor
As we just mentioned, the size of your cup is something that you have to take into account. Make sure the infuser isn't too wide for the opening of your cup or so narrow that it will fall in. 

Some infusers may even have a narrow lip that sits neatly over the edge of a cup, which means that they can only be used with cups of a certain thickness. Other infusers ensure they're universal by having handles that allow them to be used on cups of all sizes.


When choosing a basket infuser, you should also try to look for one with a lid. This will prevent too much heat from escaping while your tea is brewing and help those high-heat teas achieve maximum deliciousness. Many lids also double as a rest to hold the infuser when the brewing time has elapsed.

Deep basket infusers are placed inside a cup or mug and are perfect for making a single serving of tea. They allow leaves to float, unfurl and move freely in more space, allowing more contact with the water, which leads to better extraction. They are also very practical because they're really easy to clean.

Consider Container and Infuser Combos That Can Multi-Task

Consider Container and Infuser Combos That Can Multi-Task
If you want to make more than one serving at a time, a teapot is generally your best bet. The infuser that comes with a teapot will be a basket infuser that sits on the top of your pot and is removable for easy cleaning. With this, you can easily brew more than one cup of tea at a time.

Mugs that come with an infuser basket are some of the cutest things you can drink tea from. They often come as a set with a matching lid, which can also be used as a rest for the basket when the tea has finished brewing. Depending on the size of the mug, the infuser basket might also fit on your other mugs as well.


For those on the move, a tumbler with an infuser is an option. Tumblers tend to be tall and skinny, making it difficult to use traditional baskets as these are usually too wide and shallow to fit in the bottle. Submersion infusers can also be tricky unless they have a long enough chain. Included infuser baskets are made specifically for the tumbler, making for easy steeping and retrieval.

Daniela Titiun
Tea Sommelier and Blogger
Daniela Titiun

Mugs that come with an infuser basket are very practical, and so are teapots that come with a strainer. I'm not a fan of tumblers with infusers because you can't leave the leaves to steep for too long without the tea getting bitter. 


So, if you want to use these for on-the-go, I recommend steeping your tea somewhere else and then pouring it into the tumbler for travel.

Look for Features That Help You Use it Safely and Conveniently

Look for Features That Help You Use it Safely and Conveniently

The majority of the time, you will be infusing tea in very hot, if not boiling, water. This means it's important to be safe and ensure that your infuser isn't going to increase the risk of getting burned or scalded.


For submersion infusers, look for ones that have a chain or a handle that remains out of the hot water. These will make it easier to remove the infuser from your cup when it has finished brewing and is especially helpful with narrow and deep containers such as tumblers. 


With baskets, you should choose ones that have a handle that extends past the edge of the cup. Again, this makes it easier to remove once the brewing has ended.

Look for Features That Help You Use it Safely and Conveniently

Remember that stainless steel conducts heat, so part of a basket or submersion infuser that doesn't touch the hot water is essential. Although this might still get a little warm, it's unlikely to get so hot that it will burn.


Although silicone doesn't conduct heat as strongly as stainless steel, it can still get hot. In fact, opening a silicone submersion infuser can be very dangerous because the heat will build up and get trapped inside. Leave anything made of silicone to cool down before touching it.


Something else that may come in useful is infusers that come with lids or trays to rest the infuser in once brewed. These make it easier to leave the infuser to cool before trying to empty or clean it as you can simply take the infuser out of the mug and rest it on the lid.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions about tea infusers? Daniela is here to answer a commonly asked question on the Internet!

How do I brew loose leaf tea without an infuser?

Daniela says, "Honestly, if you don't have any tea-making tools and equipment on-hand, you can easily make loose leaf tea in a mason jar, a measuring glass, or any container that is heat-resistant. You can use loose leaves, steep them and then strain the tea from the mason jar with any kitchen strainer into mugs, cups, or pot."
