Now there are some accessories without which it is simply tough to make or have tea. Here are few of them.

Strainers and Infusers

An infuser is an indispensable tool which you need while making tea. Usage of the infuser solely depends on what tea you are making. The tea should be left for infusion inside the infuser for at least 3 to 5 minutes. But this is always advised that you should not fill the infuser more than half of its capacity.

This is because the tea leaves will need some place to expand. A tea strainer is used while you have placed the tea leaves inside the tea pot. Otherwise the tea will not taste at its best. The tea infusers are available in various shapes and sizes. You can also find them in sets with the strainers and other tea accessories.

Other Accessories

The other tea accessories include the tea pots, cups, saucers, containers, milk pots and many more. The tea pots, cups and saucers and the milk and sugar containers come in a complete set. They are available in various colors, shapes and sizes. They can be made of bone china, glass and metals.

There are designer tea sets which are quite expensive but extremely beautiful to look at. The tea sets with delicate Chinese designs on them or the cut glass tea sets are often used as showpieces. Apart from these there are tea cozies and canisters available which are used to cover the tea sets and are removed before serving the tea.

You will get some of the most beautiful tea cozies in the stores which come with designs and embroideries on them. Then there are trays which are used to serve the tea to the guests. These trays can be carved beautifully from wood, metal or other materials.

These accessories are available in all the modern stores and if you have a penchant towards the antique ones then there are many curio shops which sell some of the splendid examples. So feel free to pick the accessories of your choice as this will make the tea experience a better one.
