In My Kitchen, January 2012
Note: I wrote this post in January for Celia’s Fig Jam and Lime Cordial blog feature but forgot to release it from the Pending folder. I hope that ‘better late than never’ applies here.
This marvellous little gadget was a Christmas gift from my son. A gift from him to my husband, actually, but there were 2 filters in the box so I reckon it’s okay for me to show you mine.
It is a loose leaf tea filter.
Turn on the kettle, and then put some tea leaves into the bottom of clear, plastic filter.
Pour boiling water into the filter, close the lid, and wait until the tea finishes brewing.
Now set the filter on top of your cup or mug. Setting it on your cup causes a lever to move and release all the tea into your mug.
Now dig a little hole in the soil of your garden border and tip the tea leaves into the hole. It’s great for conditioning your soil.
Totally nifty gadget and brilliant gift. Here’s a link where you can buy it. I’ve also seen it on Amazon’s site.
