With the holidays around the corner, and travel plans chalked out, it is time to ponder a serious question. Should one take their favorite teas along? Or should they just settle for mediocre, stale teas served in hotel rooms, and cruise ships and if one is on the road, then forego it altogether?
For true tea drinkers, a day without the right cup of the day is the definition of a bad day. Especially, if one is used to drinking fresh teas, one can never go back to drinking anything else. And with a bit of planning, know-how, and the right accessories, you can steep your loose-leaf tea anywhere, anytime.
CHOOSE YOUR TEAS
While most opt for teabags owing to their convenience, you do not need to forego the pleasure of loose-leaf teas(after all, they do taste better). Carry your teas in tins, airtight pouches, or tea filters to last throughout your travels. Otherwise, you can always fall back on the good ol’ teabags to steep your cup.
SELECT A TEA INFUSER
If you don’t want to use teabags, don’t forget to take a ball infuser or a pincer. They are easy to use, can fit in any glass or mug, and are suitable to steep almost any kind of tea. Also, they are not as cumbersome as regular strainers and with them, you do not require a teapot.
GET A TEA MUG INFUSER
Another great way to minimize your load is by getting a quality tea mug infuser. This 2-in-1 design can not only help steep loose-leaf teas but can also serve as excellent drinkware. Make sure that you get a double-walled design with an easy-to-remove stainless steel infuser. Take a look at our Siedel Glass Tea Mug.
OPT FOR A TEA PITCHER
Going on a long trail or sightseeing and want your favorite tea as a company? Steep ahead and carry it in a tea pitcher to drink on the go. This is ideal especially if you wish for a cold steep. Convenient and elegant, it’s the perfect accessory for your short trips.
GET A TRAVEL TEA KIT
If you are an advanced tea drinker and know how to what all you require, go ahead and get a traveling set. Our Steepsuite contains an entire package of mug infusers, a sampler pack, and even a tea timer. The sample pack adds a variety of ranges to savor and takes your palate on another adventure.
