This has been my go-to for a few years now. Makes the best cup of tea I've ever had.

u/SomethingFoul · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I recommend the Adagio ingenuiTEA, which I've used for years. It's dead simple, and brews a nice big cup. Plastic isn't usually BIFL material, but mine's withstood 5 years of regular use without failing at any point. It's dishwasher safe, so you won't have to hand wash. I wash mine in the dishwasher maybe once a month to give it a good cleaning, and just a dump and rinse in between.

You can also get it on Amazon for a decent discount.

u/MatchaBun · 7 pointsr/tea

What you might be looking for is a gravity tea brewer. They are super convenient and quick as well as being really easy to use.

You boil water or heat it to the temperature for your tea, put the tea leaves in the gravity tea brewer, pour the hot water over the leaves, let it sit for the amount of time for the tea, and then set the gravity tea brewer on top of your mug and the tea comes out. Cleanup is as simple as dumping the leaves in the compost, a flowerbed, or trash, and rinsing out the brewer with water.

I don't know if you use amazon or not, but here are a few options:

Loose leaf tea can be purchased from one of the many sites in the sidebar or at a local store. I find loose tea at my local natural store in bulk so I can measure out my own.

u/BthreePO · 7 pointsr/GifRecipes

In case anyone is wondering, this is the best way to steep tea. Many good quality oolong, gunpowder and any other large loose leaf teas need room to bloom and tea balls and bags just can't accommodate that. It's also very easy to clean, especially if you have a sink strainer.

u/jesusapproves · 7 pointsr/tea

What are you looking for and what does he like? You can get a standard infuser like this one that I use.

Or you could get him a "reverse french press". The reverse french press is one of the best and easiest ways to brew. It lets the leaves float in the water, but allows easy extraction of the water into a mug (it is much harder with a regular french press because pressing down the leaves can cause them to expel a lot of bitter flavor into the water).

Generally speaking, avoid anything that will smash the leaves, or will not let them float easily. If he generally uses a big teapot, make sure to get something for that. If he typically uses just a mug, the two things I listed will work great. I even use my regular infuser in my large tea pitcher/pot.

But, if you give me a price range and a general idea of what you would like him to have, what he already has or what kind of things he likes, I can definitely help you out. I love tea myself, and would hope that my wife would ask someone knowledgeable when she goes to buy something for me.

OH! And if you're looking to get the best bang for your buck, avoid teavanna. They're not bad they're just overpriced.

u/Jadis4742 · 6 pointsr/tea

I think you should upgrade from tea infusers to something like the Ingenuita for yourself and a teapot with a large infuser basket for when you're making tea for a group. You get so much more flavor when the tea leaves have lots of room to unfold.

u/nerdybirdie · 5 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

How about something like this? They don't show it here, but you put loose leaf tea and hot water in there together, then when it's done steeping, you just put it on a mug and it drains straight into the cup.

u/skyswordsman · 5 pointsr/tea

Id say get a sample of a couple of different teas to try out. There are many websites to buy teas from, brownestrabbit having listed some of them. There is also Teavana and Republic of Tea as well.

For equipment, I would get a simple teamaker such as this one from Adagio. Other places carry this style of teamaker, but I dont know their pricing. It is a simple cup with a filter at the bottom, and acts like a gravity press when you place it on top of any cup or mug. Theres a video review of it in the comments of that page.

After that, id say get a e-kettle. A cheap 20$ one from walmart or target will suffice. Nothing too fancy, just something to boil water very quickly.

Since you are just starting out, dont buy into all the clay/yixing/cast iron/bone china/etc teapots. You can think about those later in life. Your focus should be on the taste of tea, not on what it comes in.

There are a couple of different types of teas, and ill make a quick and dirty list for ya here. And always try and go whole leaf/loose leaf if you have the option.


Actual Tea

These contain the actual tea leaves, Camelia Sinesis and Camelia Assamica


  • White Tea: The lightest of the 4. Also the least amount of caffeine. Will often be very light and gentle in flavor, so if you like very gentle teas, white teas are often the go to guy.
  • Green Tea: The superman of teas. Green teas have many health properties which have been scientifically backed and peer reviewed. It is one of the few that actually has studies done on it. Has a bit more caffeine than white, anywhere from 10-15% the content of a similar cup of coffee. The flavor range is so vast that ill let you discover what you like. There are lots of different types of green teas, so go check em out.
  • Oolong Tea: China's favourite. Oolong is a hybrid of sorts between a green and black tea. So therefore some oolong will be very green in presence, others will be very black. Oolong is the kind of tea youll like if you enjoy a more traditional "tea" taste, rather than the fruit/herbal blends you see at the supermarket. Goes great with food, and has a very mild taste.
  • Black Tea: Europe's baby. Try a solid english breakfast from a good company, like Twinnings or PGtips. Then try an earl grey. Now expand from there. Dont add any sugar or milk to begin with, so you can fully experience the flavor without masking it with additives.

    Other Teas

  • Rooibos Teas: Rooibos comes from a South African bush, so it will be very prickly in appearance when loose. Has ZERO caffeine, and contains alot of flavor so its popular to drink at night. You will find it mostly blended with other flavors, so find one you like and test it out.

  • Yerba maté Teas: The Redbull of the tea world. Has a buttload of caffeine, and is very dark so its similar to black teas. Some energy drink companies have started to put this stuff in their energy drinks to add that extra jolt.

  • Herbal Blends: These dont contain any actual tea leaves, and are often just various flora and dried fruits. They are good to mix into one of the base teas with to add a unique flavor.


    A couple of tips:

  • Dont buy into all that health PR marketing spiel. Things like "super-fruit enriched, may help lose weight, etc etc" are lots of bullshit and hype topped on a very small grain of truth. Youre drinking tea for the flavor and any benefits are a nice bonus, not the other way around. If you want something to help with cancer, go get chemo. Ive seen too many people suckered into buying teas because they think it will "do something" for them, such as make them lose weight, cut fat, get significantly healthier, etc etc. Also, if you go to an actual store like Teavana, dont trust what the salespeople tell you, because they are sales people first, and tea assistants second.

  • If you have the chance to go smell lots of different teas, do so. Trust your nose, it will know what you will like more than a salesperson will. A caveat to this is sweetness. The western diet has become so laden with sugar substitutes(lookin at you high fructose corn syrup ಠ_ಠ)
    that it often cannot appreciate something that doesnt come up and punch your tongue in the face. So if you smell a very sweet tea, try to stray away from it.

  • I know its a lot of info, and it can be very easy to get sucked into a tea-elitist type of mentality, similar to wine. Ultimately, tea is about one thing, and that is the taste and your personal enjoyment of it. If you love your tea over steeped and burnt to a crisp, and you know that its not supposed to be that way, then fuck anyone who says youre doing it wrong. That is the catch though, you have to know the "correct" way before going off and doing your own thing, so that youre not missing out on anything.

    TL:DR- Get a cheap teamaker, get some loose leaf green tea, no sugar.

    PS: I like to call drinking earl grey while in my chair "pulling a Jean Luc", in reference to Capt. Picard from Star Trek.


    If you want to know more, feel free to shoot me a message, will be glad to help.
u/archduke_of_awesome · 5 pointsr/tea

Amazon reviews are overwhelmingly positive. I don't have one since I'm happy with my current infuser, but if you're interested I would say go ahead.

u/pollyannapusher · 5 pointsr/stopdrinking

I am an unashamed Sleepytime tea addict...it's a must every night before bed. Yes, it's a mix, but chamomile is the main note. I got one of these and one of these for his recent Happ-Tea Birthday with a bunch of quality loose leaf black teas. He decided he just likes his Red Rose English Breakfast tea bags, so I get to play around with the tea steeper. I quit caffeine, so I haven't tried those, but I've tried Tranquil Dreams so far which I really liked. I think I might get a just straight up chamomile and lavender blend next go around.

Long live tea!! :-D

u/Zanato · 4 pointsr/tea

Steeping tea is enjoyable to me. At minimum, you'll need a device for heating the water (kettle, either electric or stovetop), a container for steeping (teapot), a filter to catch the leaves (can be part of teapot or separate), and a cup for drinking.

I use these:

  • Medelco kettle
  • BIA Cordon Blue teapot and cup
  • Steel ball strainer

    The process is simple.

  • Place leaves into teapot.
  • Heat water in kettle.
  • Pour water into teapot.
  • Place strainer at mouth of teapot while pouring tea into cup.

    You can alternatively place the leaves in the strainer and stick it inside the teapot to steep. That's slightly simpler, but it doesn't allow the leaves to fully expand.

    Some teapots are also designed to ease the steeping process further, like Adagio's Ingenuitea, which I own and yet don't use as much. You place the leaves inside, steep, and then the tea flows out from the filtered mesh bottom, directly into a cup.

    Once you've developed tea as a hobby and have certain regional or style preferences, such as Japanese sencha (green tea) or Chinese oolongs, you can invest in steeping equipment specific to those, such as kyusu or tetsubin and Zisha teapots or gaiwan. These are by no means required, but they can heighten the experience, especially if you decide to prepare the tea in the culturally traditional manner; see Japanese and Chinese tea ceremonies.
u/krskilltherhythm · 4 pointsr/pocketoperators

Yess the good stuff!! This is the one in the video, but I'd actually recommend the IngenuiTea or IngenuiTea2 - they're a bit easier to clean IMO! Happy tea-making! 🍵🙏

There's several brands that do the same thing. Scroll down to "similar items".

Not exactly pretty or quirky, but DARNED useful!

Am extremely excited for my paycheck so I can get one. :D

I usually use this magical contraption that /u/rarelyserious got me. No microwave could come close to the perfection it brews.

  1. Electric Kettle - recommend Hamilton Beach Var. Temp Kettle

  2. Infuser/Teapot, your choice
  1. Tea. Spend most of your budget on good tea and research on ideal steep and temperature times, and read up on different types of tea
u/TXCoastie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I have this and it's awesome! I love it! You add hot water, stir and just put the cup on the bottom.

u/jewzeejew · 2 pointsr/Coffee

The Keuring aint mine. It's my roommates. If I were to donate it, it would end very badly. Haha.

He also bought me a tea thingy and a bunch of teas.

I love all of it.

u/anstromm · 2 pointsr/tea

When I started with loose tea I got one of these and eventually got one of these. I mostly use the IngenuiTEA, but still use the Finum filter occasionally.

u/The5thHorseman666 · 2 pointsr/tea

yeah i can see that coming in handy. i kind of want one of these now https://www.amazon.com/Adagio-Teas-ingenuiTEA-Bottom-Dispensing-Teapot/dp/B000FPN8TK

u/UnclaimedUsername · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Just another tip, gunpowder green tea is pretty good and it's one of the cheapest loose-leaf types I've found. Five or six bucks (USD) for a quarter pound, which should get you two cups a day for about a month if you reuse the leaves. If there's a Peet's Coffee and Tea near you, they sell it, or you can get it (along with other great teas) at Harney and Sons.

I use this to brew my loose leaf tea, it's dead simple. And of course, once you start getting obsessed you can check out /r/tea for more info.

I'll add to the anecdotal evidence: I drink tea all the time now, which both keeps me feeling full and stops me from drinking more high-calorie beverages. That's enough for me even if tea doesn't have any weight loss benefits beyond that.

u/daggerdragon · 2 pointsr/tea

I swear by ingenuiTEA (they also have a 64oz one). I've bought all the tea lovers in my life one. It's dishwasher-safe, the handle never gets hot to the touch, and you can steep as little or as much loose-leaf as you like. It's freaking magic to everyone who sees it for the first time, because it's gravity-fed and all the tea drains out through the bottom into the mug.

Make sure you buy at least one spare filter, though. I've accidentally thrown one away when throwing out the used tea leaves (look, I don't function well in the morning before I've had my first cuppa, okay???) and another time I accidentally popped one out in the sink and it fell down the garbage disposal, I didn't see it, turned on the disposal, and it made the most god-awful noise. Whoops.

\
They recommend the 64oz size good for "brewing a pitcher of iced tea". Well, screw that, I have a 72oz monster mug and you bet your ass I'm going to enjoy every last drop. Pitchers, hah.

u/gkleinman · 2 pointsr/tea

I highly recommend a tea brewer like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Adagio-Teas-ingenuiTEA-Bottom-Dispensing-Teapot/dp/B000FPN8TK/

It'll open the world to loose leaf and your options become vast. Otherwise check out Adagio or David's Tea for Mightly Leaf like teas.

u/fattyd2147 · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

It’s a tea brewer/ strainer like this:

Adagio Teas 16 oz. ingenuiTEA Bottom-Dispensing Teapot https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000FPN8TK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_29l1Cb61CSYJV

They can be a PIA to clean.

u/braden87 · 2 pointsr/tea

My dream, it has become real. I wanted to do something similar for years, well done finding the motivation to actuate it.

​

I'd always picture using something like: https://www.amazon.com/Adagio-Teas-ingenuiTEA-Bottom-Dispensing-Teapot/dp/B000FPN8TK/

u/TheYetiCall · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

I'm sure that's incorrect too but I'm not as much of a tea snob. So typically, tea snobs prefer people to use an infuser than a tea ball but it depends on the tea. Apparently you want more room for full leaf teas to grow. Honestly though, I've never had an issue with my tea filters. However, I'm cheep and I now use this infuser but my husband prefers this one or a French press.

If you get really into tea, there are teas that do need that extra room but your average Irish breakfast isn't going to need it.

u/prometheus5500 · 2 pointsr/tea

For single cups, my mom uses this type of handy guy.

I've been wanting to get something like this one.

Both work for loose leaf, both are good for small quantities, both are fairly cheap.

u/kardiffkook · 2 pointsr/tea

I've been using this is that not good?

Thanks for the info, I'll try and give those Upton Tea Import suggestions a go!

u/Kijad · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Bring one of these and then make your own Chai. =)

u/sylvar · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I added Davidson's Christmas tea to my WL recently. What I recommend is good gear. There are $10 digital scales accurate to 0.1g, so once you find out how much tea you like for a large mug (I like 6g), you can get it right every time. And an IngenuiTEA teapot makes it fun to brew, too.

Hint: You probably don't need to buy a 500g weight to calibrate the scale. A roll of brand-new pennies, 2.5g each, will probably give you plenty of material to work with.

u/willpayingems · 1 pointr/tea

I put water in this and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes.

u/RedMage928 · 1 pointr/tea

What do you think about ingeuinitea?

Am I getting sucked into some gimmick or is it actually convenient?

I would go for the white tea but it's kind of expensive for a beginner, so Alishan Milk Oolong it is.

The reason I'm getting into tea is because it seems like it's a healthy alternative to straight water, but the taste puts me off atm so a fruity, creamy flavor would be nice

This Alishan Milk Oolong brand seem good to you?

Random question: Do you believe drinking tea before sleeping is bad? I've heard it has caffeine but idk if it's tea-specific or what else, the green tea I have doesn't seem to bother me

Lastly, any specific method of measuring water temperature you recommend? Should I just buy a thermostat and wait for boiling water to cool?

u/Mayortomatillo · 1 pointr/tea

I've done it. I usually throw all of my tea in one of these. I'll tear open one or two green tea packets and throw them in sometimes to compliment whatever else is in there. It's not bad, actually. I've never tried with anything other than green tea, though.

edit I wouldn't suggest putting it in an infuser, though. I've tried that and it makes for gritty tea.

u/tehzephyrsong · 1 pointr/tea

The IngenuiTea teapot from Adagio is cheaper, does the same thing, and doesn't give any money to Teavana. You can't lose.

u/Anagoth9 · 1 pointr/tea

If you want something simple to make tea for one, I would suggest something like this. I don't like the in-mug infusers. I usually end up having to look around for something awkward to get it out of the cup like a fork or chopsticks otherwise I end up burning my fingers. Tea pots are nice but I find them to be more ceremonial than I feel like dealing with when I just want something quick.

As far as temp goes, usually for green tea you're good to go once small bubbles start forming in the pot/kettle. You don't need to worry about having a thermometer nearby or anything like that.

And the corn pops green tea you're describing sounds like Genmaicha.

u/run5numb · 1 pointr/kratom

I use an IngenuiTEA to make my kratom tea. It steeps it for as long as I like (usually at least 15 minutes), and dispenses when I put it on top of a glass. I usually fill the glass it dispenses into with sugar and stir to dissolve, before pouring into another larger cup filled with ice. Cold, sweet, perfect.

u/dklyons81 · 1 pointr/tea

The forlife is a good infuser, I have used it in the past. At work, I used to use an Ingenuitea because it is really straightforward to use and clean. And then any old mug is fine.

The leaf and water matter the most, but make sure your leaves have room to bloom and move around, or you'll get a weird brew.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/stopdrinking

I use a metal tea ball but you can also buy open tea bags and fill them yourself and sweet little teapots with a place for the tea leaves to infuse. At the tea shop where I used to work we sold a lot of these clever little pots Ingenuitea

u/mejor_lazer · 1 pointr/tea

An electric programmable kettle with different temperature settings will cost you about $30-$40 I just picked up this one, pretty decent, probably a bit too much water for one sitting to be honest. It's pretty important to get the right temperature for tea since too hot scalds certain types, and too warm doesn't get the full benefit of others.

At work, I'd go with those infuser cups, since it's really convenient. I don't have this one but I've got something similar to it.

With about $60ish left, you can get quite an assortment of teas.

u/yourfriendstag · 1 pointr/tea

A bottom-dispensing teapot like this one is a super easy way to do gongfu. You can look it up on youtube or something to see exactly how it works.

It doesn't have the same romance as traditional teaware, and you can't build up a patina like with yixing clay or other unglazed ceramics, but it is super convenient. Sticking a coffee filter in the bottom makes cleanup even easier.

u/Mitragyna411 · 1 pointr/kratom

I use one of these. It makes it so simple. Throw some boiling water (or even just the hot water from the water cooler at the office) along with a few lemon slices and about 1/4 more than my usual dose of kratom. Let it sit, put it on a cup to let it pour/strains, add some lemon.
