Tea Infuser Tongs

Perfect for when you just want to brew a mug of tea rather than a big pot

  • stainless steel tea infuser
  • 220 x 50mm
  • Dishwasher Safe


  • Cheap and cheerful, these are perfect for those who are just beginning to explore tea leaves
  • Perfect for single mug brewing
  • Less fiddly than the traditional 'ball and chain' type of infuser
  • Good for travelling as fairly compact
  • Nifty spring handle which allows you to open the mesh ball wide when filling or emptying.


  • Tiny bits can escape, so it's not suitable for those who don't like bits at the bottom of the cup or for use with rooibos or very fine cut leaf tea, such as fannings
  • Slight faff to clean out

Just perfect

For that one cup brew. Don’t overfill, let it stand, pop aside, then embrace your mug, sip perfection

Robert Riley
Tea Tongs for Tea Time

Very useful for single cups but can be a bit fiddley with potential loss of very small amounts of very precious tea. Some teas are very fine leading to small amounts of tea in the bottom of the cup (Ceylon BOP) but coarser blends such as russian caravan do well in this small shiny strainer. Other than that they are a worthy product that I would recommend.

Tea infuser

Brilliant little gadget, no bits in my tea and easy to clean. Fruit Tea was great as well, will be ordering again

Tea tongs

Great piece of kit, I was expecting lots of 'bits' in my tea but that hasn't been the case at all. Easy to use and big enough for 2tsp of herbal tea.

Alison Stedman

Loved the tea and the individual strainer means I can make an individual cup.
Easy to use.
