Trudeau Tea Solutions
As we discussed in the Cool Tip A Proper Cuppa Tea, the best cup of tea is made with loose tea, that has plenty of room to “swim” around, and is removed after brewing to avoid bitterness (from extracting too much of the tannins in the tea).
So once you’ve decided you want a quality cup of tea, does that mean that you have to mess with strainers or try to sip your tea around the inevitable leaves that land in your cup? Not at all! You can have quality and convenience… and here’s how…
Those clever folks at Trudeau have broken the code on achieving quality with convenience. They have two tea solutions that do the trick: one comes with its own pot and the other conveniently delivers a single cup. Both have plenty of room for your loose tea to expand, fine holes for less leaf residue, an included resting place for your infuser after the tea is brewed, and a bunch of other convenient features.
Trudeau’s 20-ounce Tea Maker has a roomy removable 18/8 stainless steel infuser basket so your tea can swim freely while it’s steeping. It also has an included stainless steel saucer that provides a convenient place to set the infuser when you remove it from the teapot. The teapot itself is made of heat-resistant borosilicate glass that shows off the rich colors of your favorite tea. The ergonomic handle protects your fingers from the hot glass, and the sturdy black base protects your table from heat and scratches, while also providing insulation.

The Flip Infuser is a very clever design that provides a roomy infuser for a single cup solution. Its silicone lid keeps in some of the heat while brewing and then acts as an insulated base under the broad drip-catching rim when it’s removed from your cup and … yes, flipped over on its head.
