Teafu Tea InfuserPublished:August 29th, 2010
Tea infusers are a part of the tea drinking culture and the latest invention from Dreamfarm, an Australian company specializing in innovations in the kitchen, is Teafu. Teafu opens so that you can use it as a tea scoop in order to measure and collect the loose leaf tea. The infuser is shut then and you can drop it into a cup of boiling water.
The tea infuser is made of silicon that is heat resistant and is also squeezable. This property can speed the brewing process. The handle makes it possible for you to squeeze the tea, thus speeding the infusion process by stimulating the leaves.
The device is especially useful for high quality tea, which can be infused several times. However, as with all tea infusers, Teafu restricts the tea to a smaller area. With high grade, loose leaf oolong tea, this infuser is not big enough to enclose long and slender leaves. Overall, Teafu is a clever innovation that can speed the brewing process.
