Get Loose With Some Tea

Catherine Strawn / February 2, 2010

Steaming cups of tea are one of the only things getting us through this cold spell, and as a result, we’ve become expert sippers. Regular ole filter bags are fine in a pinch, but we’ve become a little snooty and like the dynamic flavors loose teas create. The funny-looking Luci Loose Tea Infuser will turn dried, crushed leaves into a delicious drink, and the matching mini tea tray means you won’t create a tea puddle while looking for a place to set it after you’ve steeped a cup.
