There are some basic products that will make brewing loose leaf tea easy and fun. You will need a way to boil water. Kettles are in a separate section. You'll need a vessel in which to brew the tea--that can be a cup, mug or teapot. You will also need something to contain the tea for brewing--that might be a paper T-Sac or an infuser. Sometimes the infuser is part of the mug or teapot like the Bee House or ForLife types. Beyond these basics you might like to have a special spoon for measuring, a scale for weighing, or a thermometer. Brewing loose leaf tea takes time and can be a very enjoyable pause in your hurried day.
