Why Do You Need Tea Accessories?

Tea is a great source of nutrients and metabolism-boosting ingredients. It’s also a tasty way to relax or socialize with friends and family. No matter how someone enjoys tea, it’s important they have the right accessories to make the most out of each cup.

How to choose the best tea accessories

When it’s time to make the perfect cup of sippable tea, here are some tips on how to choose the best accessories.


  1. Don’t mistake the price for the quality. Sometimes affordable accessories are just as good or better than expensive alternatives.

  2. Look at what other tea lovers are saying. Read reviews and ask around. It’s one of the best ways to discover new favorites.

  3. Think about the type of tea. For example, hot or iced tea. Some accessories are great for one and not the other.

Hot tea accessories

Start by boiling water in a quality tea kettle. Porcelain, glass, and cast iron are great choices. Then, place tea inside an infuser or strainer. The infuser shouldn’t let any loose leaf tea slip out through the mesh.

Loose leaf tea accessories

The key to a great cup of loose leaf tea is a tea strainer. Tea lovers can opt for collapsible strainers, tea globes, or even floating strainers. They’re perfect for making tea at home, in the office, or on the go.

Teapot accessories

Tea carafes are ideal for making iced tea — especially in the warmer months. But for hot tea, tea kettles and teapots are best. Most tea boxes will identify which temperature (hot or iced) to prepare, and whether to use a strainer.

Teacup accessories

Teacup accessories are a great way to express personality and take tea on the go. Mix and match teacups for an eccentric collection. Or choose a set of teacups for an elegant aesthetic. Either way, most infusers fit comfortably inside most teacups.

Teabag accessories

It’s important to keep teabags off countertops and other surfaces after use. The tea inside can stain clothing or porous surfaces. Reach for tea helpers for a better experience and less mess.

Tea making accessories

After tea steeps, there are a few more steps like stirring in sugar or honey. Some tea lovers froth up milk to pour over top. Tea-making accessories like measuring spoons are a must-have for tea drinkers everywhere.
