Tea strainers are an easy way to brew your herbal teas and infusions! (We here at the American College of Healthcare Sciences use these everyday!)
They are stainless steel, safe for dishwasher use, and incredibly sturdy. The bowl is very large and therefore holds a lot of dried herbs.
Simply place the strainer in your cup or mug, place your choice of dried or fresh botanical into the strainer, pour boiling water through the botanical, and steep for 5-10 minutes.
This stainless steel model is wonderful as it is larger than normal, and is decorative so looks good out on the counter.
