On Blooming Teas

One of the best parts about tea is its presentation. Lately, I’ve been pretty obsessed with a tisane made of almonds, cinnamon, and apples, and that not only tastes wonderful and smells like apple pie, it brews to a beautiful sparkling pink color.

But for the best presentations in tea, for teas that deserve to be oo’ed and aah’ed over even more than sipped, there is nothing more beautiful than blooming teas.

Argentinian designer Pablo Matteoda created this beautiful Sharky tea-infuser. It’s elegant and ever-so-slightly macabre. If we used this awesome little gadget, we wouldn’t be able to make our tea without also humming the theme from Jaws

A Pressing Issue

There are many ways to make tea. Bags, strainers, even just putting leaves into a pot and pouring water over them. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, especially if you make tea with loose leaves. I’ve got a few types of tea in my cabinet I’ll drink in bags, but almost all of my tea is loose, especially since I ran out of Harvey & Sons’ orange cinnamon spice.

So most of the time, I use a tea press.

This is essentially my pot.
