A few things to make your daily cup of tea even more lovely.

Pu-erh tea

This mellow and earthy Chinese fermented tea is finely aged—similar to wine, it gets more flavorful over time. One pressed disc of Pu-erh makes many, many cups of tea.

Tea infuser

The stainless steel Mesh Wonder Ball works with all loose teas.
