5 Essential Tools Every Tea Lover Needs: * Our favorite tea products and how to use them!

1. Finum Basket: We love these because they give the tea leaves more room to expand and fit in most travel cups and mugs! Once the brew is complete, the lid can simply be flipped over and used as a drip-off tray for the tea filter. Due to the delicate material of the filter, the product can be used for fine teas and coffee as well.

2. Insulated Water Bottle w/Tea Strainer: This bottle features our triple insulation technology and has been tested to keep liquids cold for 36 hours and hot up to 8 hours. Its dual use leak proof top has a wide opening for easy filling and a small opening for easy drinking. A versatile vessel for anything, anytime, anyplace and now available with interchangeable tops!

3. Brown Betty Teapot: Brown Betty Teapots are said to make the best pot of tea in the world. The shape of the pot causes the tea leaves to gently swirl around as the boiling water is added, producing an exquisite infusion. The red clay, with its brown Rockingham glaze, coddles the brew and gives the perfect cup of tea.
This little teapot has quite a history! Its origins date back to the end of the 17th Century and the birth of the British Ceramic Teapot.

The original unglazed teapot was handmade out of red clay from the Bradell Woods area in Stoke-on-Trent. Today, the Brown Betty teapot is still handmade in Stoke-on-Trent with the same clay from the original area!

4. Matcha Tea and Whisk: Matcha, a powdered form of tea is an incredibly healthy and delicious drink! Did you know one cup of Matcha has 10X the benefits of one cup of tea?

The traditional bamboo whisk (also called chasen) is essential for making a cup matcha. It is actually pretty easy to prepare Matcha tea at home using a bamboo whisk and ceramic tea bowl. The trick to creating a frothy texture is to whisk vigorously in a zig-zag motion. The Spice Hut offers many types of Matcha including Green, Rooibos, Yerba Mate, White, Jasmine Green, and Peppermint Green.
