Some are built in to timeless teapots while others fit perfectly on top of your travel mug. Oh and some are dinosaurs. Yes, we tested a tea steeper in the shape of dinosaur. Beyond the shape and size we also were impressed with the quality materials being used in modern tea steepers and tea infusers.
Our main buying factors were material choice, size and the ability to steep both extra fine loose leaf teas and larger variants. Beyond that we tried to include multiple options in terms of size and portability.
Finum has one of the best selling brewing baskets on the market and for good reason. It is built with 18/10 stainless-steel mesh and the basket is framed with high quality heat resistant plastic.

Overall this is a high quality, easy to clean and durable tea steeper that will make your tea brewing process easier and more efficient.

In Japanese Hario means “King of Glass”. That is exactly what you get with the tea pot with the best tea steeper. From the design to the ease of cleaning this is a pure classic that will brew great tea for generations. The only thing holding this tea steeper back from being our top choice is the size. For many the on the go brew in mug options would be a more practical choice. This is more of a show piece to brew for company.
