The Tea Spot today launched a product to replace your infamous (tea) ball & chain. It is the perfect tea-steeping device that not only makes steeping tea easy but also makes it fun, functional and affordable.
TUFFY STEEPERS by The Tea Spot are collapsible silicone steeping baskets designed for easy storage, travel and tea on-the-go. This durable, reusable, loose-leaf tea filter is compatible with most traditional cups, mugs and teapots. Made of the highest-food-grade silicone, TUFFY STEEPERS are dishwasher friendly, heat and odor resistant. Whereas metal infusers rust over time and taint the flavor of tea, this silicone steeper is stain-proof and will steep tea clean. Its functional design gives the tea leaves enough surface area to steep correctly and its small holes prevent the tea leaves from escaping into your vessel. The lid also doubles as a saucer for when your tea is done steeping and patiently awaits re-steeping. The TUFFY STEEPER is also a versatile kitchen gadget, especially when cooking with tea. It is an easy way to strain tea leaves, herbs and spices without fuss or mess. Available in four different colors (violet, olive, charcoal and blueberry) and retailing for $8.95, these clever tea-steeping devices make replacing the tea-ball and chain not only affordable but also essential.
The TUFFY STEEPER is a brilliant addition to the Tea Spot’s STEEPWARE™ line and complements their hand-crafted collection of loose-leaf tea, available for purchase at theteaspot.com. The Tea Spot’s products are also sold nationwide to retailers like Whole Foods Markets, Central Market, Amazon.com, Cooking.com, Chef’s catalog, Hannaford, Vitamin Shoppe, select H-E-B’s and independent specialty retailers.
