Steeping your tea in the basket infuser gives your tea leaves ample room to breathe. The dual-purpose lid keeps tea hot as it steeps—vital when steeping sensitive, lower temp teas. For multiple infusions, turn the lid into a drip dish for the basket and set aside until you're ready for another round of tea.
The basket infuser also works well for coffee. It makes for a richer brew with a textured mouth feel, similar to a french press. Simply add a scoop of coffee to the basket and immerse in hot water for approximately 4 minutes. A coarse grind is recommended.
