Nothing is better on a cold morning than a piping hot mug of tea. Whether you enjoy black tea, green tea, or herbal, almost every tea fanatic can agree that a properly brewed cup can warm you up, improve your mood, and satisfy a craving. Preparing the perfect cup while traveling may seem like a daunting task, but with the right travel tea infuser, you can enjoy your favorite brew from practically anywhere.
There are two types of travel tea infusers – tea infusers that are built right into their travel tumbler and stand-alone tea infusers that can be dropped into any mug. But whether you prefer a tumbler infuser or an independent one, there are a few important things to consider. Mainly, can it be easily transported? Can it be cleaned easily? And can it be stored easily? Below are our three favorite travel tea mugs, and our three favorite standalone tea infusers.
So figure out whether you want a mug, or a small little tea infuser, grab your favorite tea, and hit the road!
The Best Tea Infuser Travel Tumblers
If your least favorite part of drinking tea is figuring out how to discard your tea bag, then this mug will eliminate that problem for you! The bottle is double layered, so it will not feel hot in your hands, and it will stay insulted for longer than a single-walled bottle. It even comes with an included carrying case so that you can store and transport your mug easily and safely!
With the lid screwed shut, your tea can steep securely while you go about your travels. When you are ready to enjoy your tea, just pluck the infuser out and drink directly from the tumbler. If you want a stylish way to enjoy tea on the go, this natural looking, easy to use tumbler is a fantastic solution for you.
There is small, stainless steel strainer that sits above the pouring/drinking spout that strains the leaves out of your tea before you drink. Considering that it is difficult to remove loose leaf tea from the main compartment once steeping is completed, this tumbler is better suited for herbal tea fans. They can let the leaves sit in their tea for lengthy amounts of time. If you want an elegant way to transport herbal tea, brew it, and strain it into a mug, then you should purchase this item since it offers all three capabilities!
The Best Independent Travel Infusers
Stainless steel is very easy to clean. All you have to do to keep your infuser sanitary is dump the used leaves and wash the strainer. This infuser is particularly well suited for travel. The balancing arms fold down along the body of the basket, and the entire thing fits snugly into a plastic carrying case. This makes it easy to toss this infuser into your bag or backpack. The lid of the carrying case even doubles as a drip tray for when you pull the strainer out of your mug.
To use the infuser, just pop the bottom off of the tea bag, fill it with your loose leaf tea, and snap it back into place. Washing them is simple and easy. They are so small that you will hardly notice them in your purse or backpack. One pack comes with six infusers in six fun colors. You can spread the joy of tea with whomever you are traveling with.
With their unique shape, they are easy to store in the pen section of your bag or backpack. That will save on packing space and enable the use of other beverages. This is another infuser that is good for herbal tea fans, since the leaves cannot be easily extracted from your mug without dumping all of your tea.
So grab an infuser, pack up your favorite tea, and hit the road. If you liked this post, you should check out our related post on the best Contigo mugs.
