How to Make Your OwnTea with 52 DIY Herbal Tea Recipes | aDelightfulHome.comour OwnTea with 52 DIY Herbal Tea Recipes |

Stump Tea Pot

Large enough for 2 cups of tea. The strainer works well for steeping fine loose-leaf teas.

Tea Ball Infuser

Great for making one cup of tea.

Buy one with small holes, so fine tea leaves don’t escape into the water. Also get a long handle, so you can use it with larger mugs.

Tea Basket Infuser

These are great for brewing single cups of tea (I prefer them over the tea ball). This one in particular is excellent because of it’s large capacity and the fact that it has a lid (which keeps the heat in).

Tea Mug with Infuser

This lovely set comes with a mug, tea basket infuser, and lid. I have this very one and love it!

I have purple, but it comes in lots of colors!

Press-n-brew tea bags

Use Press-n-brew tea bags to create your own tea blends easily and without too much fuss. Simply fill, then iron to seal.

French Press

A French Press is a simple way to brew herbal tea. Plus, it looks pretty.

french press stainless steel

If you have trouble with breaking the glass on a regular French Press (ahem, ask me how I know?), you might want to try a stainless steel version.

Tea Infuser bottle
