Last week, Kyle and I went out for Thai food. We live about 30 minutes from any thai restaurant and about 55 from any good one so we don’t have it nearly as much as I’d like to. We happened to be trying a restaurant we hadn’t been to before. The food was delicious and I was also excited to find a pretty collection of dainty thai tea infuser mugs. Our Hyvee grocery also replaced it’s bulk grain section with a bulk tea section so now I’m excited to get a pretty infuser mug and try a couple varieties.
You can’t really tell from the photo, but the lid on this Tea Spot Steeping Mug sets steady on the table and holds the infuser when you’re done steeping your leaves. Clever!
If you want a bolder design, etsy has a few options. My favorite is this Vintage Royal Windsor Porcelain Tea Mug by thisandthatok on Etsy. It’s gorgeous! I don’t even think you’d need a book to enjoy with your tea, you could just study the design.
Tea Forté makes an entire brewing system based on this model. They don’t have the pretty porcelain loose leaf infusers, but I like the shape and size of the outside. I kind of prefer a cup without a handle sometimes.
