Classic Mesh Infuser Ball
We currently stock these classic stainless steel mesh infusers in two sizes and we have a few tips for you to help you choose the correct size for your needs. Keep in mind some tea leaves will more than double in size when they steep, so never fill your tea ball more than 1/3 to 1/2 full. If after steeping, your tea ball is packed tightly with tea, then you are wasting tea and dollars. You want the water to have plenty of room to circulate. Therefore, choose the biggest infuser that will fit in your teapot.
1.75" Mesh Ball - For a single cup or petite mug.
2.00 " Mesh Ball - For over-sized mugs, travel mugs and 2 - 3 cup teapots.
