Tuesday Tea Time: ingenuiTEA Loose Leaf Tea Teapot — A Modern Mrs.
I've become increasingly interested in loose tea over the last month or so. In fact, last week while at my local natural food store, I walked post some strainers and loose tea leaves and almost made an impulse purchase. Something told me to wait, and now I'm thinking it's because I was destined to discover the ingenuiTEA Loose Leaf Tea Teapot! {$19.99 via Vat19.}

Have you heard of it? I hadn't until today. I came to find it by looking up some royalty-free images of loose tea {as I don't have any myself}, and in my search stumbled across a photo of the ingenuiTEA Loose Leaf Tea Teapot. It's almost funny because my original post idea was to share my stash, which isn't nearly as impressive as Kristen's, but was too lazy to take photos of it due to cleaning my house all day. {We have two showings tomorrow. Yay real estate....} So, let's take a look.

{Source} Okay, so, despite the picture, the Teapot doesn't include the cup. It's just the pitcher, which holds up to 16 oz. of hot water. It has a metal mesh filter inside that strains the tea so you don't wind up with leafy bits in your drink. The whole contraption is BPA-free and dishwasher safe! Wheee!

How does it work?

Step 1: Add your preferred loose tea to the Teapot. {ingenuiTEA recommends only a teaspoon or two.}
Step 2: Pour your hot water into the Teapot, allowing your tea to steep to your desired strength.
Step 3: Place the ingenuiTEA Teapot on top of any cup or mug. Doing so will open a valve which allows your tea to flow down and into the cup.

ingenuiTEA claims the Teapot will not leak, and that the metal mesh filter never needs to be replaced. {Vat19 also offers a video and step-by-photos here!}

It looks really easy to use, and I love the easy clean-up. You just can't beat popping something into the dishwasher! The price isn't bad, either, seeing as most kettles cost at least $20.

I'm seriously considering this purchase! Now I just need to find some loose tea to try....

  4. This is FASCINATING! I think something this cool would inspire me to try loose tea. Of course, I'm still just getting started on tea in packets, myself.
