In case you were not aware, your tea bag might contain plastic which gets released into your tea when you steep. Then it gets ingested by you. Sounds good? We didn't think so either. Another great kitchen swap is a stainless steel tea infuser, which does not release harmful chemicals into your body or environment. Stainless steel is long lasting, rust proof and durable so this item will serve and entertain for quite some time. Invest in some loose tea and these infusers to avoid plastic diet. Three sizes if you want to use them as spice infusers in your stew.
