Finum Brewing Basket (for Loose Leaf Infusions)


The Finum brewing basket offers the most convenient way to brew a single cup with our loose leaf blends.


Simply put 1-2 teaspoons of your chosen blend into the basket, drop it into your cup, pour freshly boiled water over, and then let it infuse for 5-10 minutes. When the infusion is ready, remove the basket from the cup and use the lid as a drip tray. Simple as that!

We looked for the best brewing basket we could find, and chose the Finum basket for several reasons:

  • BPA-free
  • Dishwasher safe and durable
  • Suitable for teapots and mugs
  • Extra-fine stainless steel micro mesh means no leaves get in the drink
  • Allows extra room for leaves to expand and impart full flavour
  • Lid and handle stay cool when brewing
  • Non-metal frame and so won’t rust (some that we tested began to rust after a few months)
  • Can also be used for tea, coffee, and herbs

If you’re looking to brew more than a cup at a time, then there are some great loose leaf tea pots available online. One of the best and most affordable ones we found was this one on
