What Are Tea Infuser Mugs?

If you’re a tea enthusiast and you’re always on the go, there’s a good chance a tea infuser mug is in your near future. They’re a great way to steep and drink tea anywhere. And you don’t need tons of accessories to make the perfect cup. Let’s explore tea infuser mugs to learn more.

How do tea infuser mugs work?

Tea infuser mugs are super easy, and fun, to use. First, boil some water in a tea kettle. As your water heats up, place the infuser inside your mug. It’s basically a basket that holds your loose leaf tea.

When the water is ready, pour it into the mug and over the infuser and tea. Cover the mug lid and let your tea steep for a few minutes. Use the directions on the back of your tea container for ideal steep times. Or steep according to your taste preferences. The longer you steep, the stronger the flavor.

Once the tea steeps, open the lid and remove the infuser and tea leaves. Let your tea sit until it’s at your ideal drinking temperature. Then sip, sip, sip away!

How to choose the perfect tea infuser mug

When you’re ready to invest in an infuser mug, there are four boxes to check.


Find a mug that holds the right amount of water. If it’s too big, you’ll end up with wasted tea. But if it’s too small, you won’t get as much tea as you like.


Choose from several infuser mug materials like ceramic or glass. But the most common infuser mugs are stainless steel.


Look for extra features like lids and handles. If you’re on the go, you’ll enjoy that extra functionality.


Go for something that speaks to you! Choose the funky pattern. Go for the minimalist look. Whatever strikes your fancy is the best option.
