Tea ball clam shell is great for making tea with loose leaves.
This clam shell tea ball is a very handy gadget to use for making tea from loose dried regular or herbal tea leaves such as lemon balm, peppermint, and spearmint, instead of brewing the tea and having to use a tea strainer when pouring the tea into a cup. When the handle of this tea ball is squeezed, the clam shell opens allowing you to scoop up enough loose dry leaves to make 2 cups of tea. When the tea ball is full, release the pressure on the handle and the clam shell will close; remove the excess dry tea leaves from the closed joint back into the tea leaf container. Place the tea ball into 2 cups of boiling hot water and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes, and you’re ready to serve the tea.
