New reusable tea filter/infuser

I don't know why it's taken me this long to put these up in my Etsy store but they're finally there.   I have been using them for a couple of years now and they're great!  Very inexpensive to make or buy, so easy to use, easy to clean, portable, eco-friendly, and make really great tasting tea.  Sure, disposable "sack" type filters work well but I'm glad I don't have to worry about running out.  I love the idea that I can use these over and over.  I'm going to try and make coffee in one, too.  Not the same one I make tea in, mind you.

Every time I see little tea balls or spoons, I can't help but think that even though they're cute, they don't make the most of the tea leaves that are put into them.  They don't have room to bloom and impart their maximum flavor.  These cloth infusers give the leaves so much room to move, it's almost like they're swimming around in my cup.  It's so cool to see how big, open, and fluffy the tea leaves are that come out of them when I'm done brewing.  Ooooh, I need a picture of that!  Okay, I'm back.  Had to get a picture of that!  LOL  I know I'm biased, but they're great!

One of my older filters...they're prettier now!

Before - 2 tsp Abundant Berry loose leaf tea
