The Benefits of Tea Infuser Travel Mugs

There are so many different ways to take your tea on the go: a traditional mug with a fancy, snap-on lid; a thermos, designed to keep your steaming beverage warm; or even a simple travel mug, the kind originally meant to keep coffee drinkable during your commute. Yet tea is a unique drink, one that requires more than pouring and ingesting. The best cups of tea are carefully steeped, the leaves soaked just the right length of time in hot water and ready to enjoy while still hot. So, how can you recreate the same taste of tea that you love when you need to drink it as you run throughout your day? That’s the beauty of a tea infuser travel mug — the perfect way to enjoy your tea without a teapot, a stove, or even a traditional mug.

A tea infuser travel mug is somewhat self explanatory; it’s a travel mug that features an attachment, accessory, or component that can brew tea. That’s right, there’s no need to wait for your tea to steep before rushing out the door each morning — you can drop your favorite loose leaf blend, or even ready-made teabag of choice, into the infuser basket, fill the mug with water, and get on your way. Every tea infuser mug is different, but each features the same components: an insulated mug, a mesh infuser basket, and a lid meant to seal in the heat. With nothing more than these three pieces, you can brew your tea anywhere, and get sipping as soon as it’s done steeping right in your mug. Toss out your old tea leaves or tea bag, and you can make another cup in seconds.

From beautifully designed to extremely simple and straightforward, there are countless varieties of on-the-go tea infusers. Travel tea infuser mugs aren’t an expensive option, either, as they can be purchased for prices between $10 to $30. Do consider the size of the mug when choosing your portable tea infuser; every model and variety holds a different amount of water. If you’d prefer a larger infuser mug, remember that you’ll need to add more tea with each use to make the perfect brew.

If you’re looking for the perfect travel tea infuser mug for yourself, or for a fellow tea lover, consider one of these options:
