From Loose-Leaf Tea Steepers to Healthy Kombucha Kits

By: Jana Pijak - Nov 4, 2015
These examples of tea brewing methods range from healthy kombucha tea kits to loose leaf steepers that are ideal for those on the go. While many still choose to start their morning with a traditional cup of coffee, tea's growing popularity is a result of a health-conscious marketing shift. While caffeinated teas are a healthy alternative to classic coffee blends, caffeine-free teas are known for their calming properties and are considered to be a natural remedy for stress, indigestion and insomnia.

These tea brewing methods are not only limited to upscale tea kettles that are sold with a matching mug and saucer set but also include portable tea strainers that are easy to transport from place to place. While products like a tea-wringing spoon help tea drinkers perfect their blend conveniently while at work, sleek electric kettles -- like Sorapot's loose-leaf set -- brew a tasty cup of tea while doubling as a piece of contemporary kitchen decor.

For lovers of cold tea options, Kombucha blends can be brewed at home with custom kits while iced teas are likely created using glass bottles that feature a built-in strainer or infusion filter.
