Skull Tea Infuser
Add some witchy whimsy into your teas with this Skull Tea Infuser from Inked Goddess Creations.
This tea infuser is an easy (and stylish!) way to make that perfect cup of tea. The skull is made of kitchen-grade silicone, which withstands heat. The skull infuser is attached to a metal chain, with a silicone crossbones at the end, to hang outside of your tea mug. Simply open the infuser along the skull's brow line, fill with loose tea, and place into your mug full of hot water for 3-6 minutes to infuse the water with your tea blend. When your tea is at the perfect brew strength for you, remove the infuser from your cup and enjoy!
Each infuser measures approximately 8" long, with the chain included. The skull measures approximately 2" x 1.5" x 1.5". It's the perfect addition to our loose teas in tins, so you can brew an amazing cup of our tea every time!
***A note on use: We use this infuser here at Inked Goddess Creations, and have found that if you jam-pack the bottom with herbal tea, it doesn't brew as well as if you leave a little room in the bottom for the water to flow through. If you want a stronger cup of tea, we advise leaving the infuser for 5 minutes or more in the cup of water, as opposed to adding more tea to the infuser.
It's surprisingly hard to find a good tea infuser. They need to be easy to clean, not leak leaves all over my cup, and not bob around the top of the tea---I require full immersion of my leaves! This infuser does a pretty good job of meeting all those requirements. Smaller leaf bits may slip through the holes, but it is easy to clean AND has holes at the top that don't trap in air causing it to become a flotation device.
It's a great size. I got one for me and a couple to give out as gifts
This skull infuser goes perfectly with IGC's Skull Tea Spoon,and also makes a really awesome gift~!
