  1. I love these things as I drink green tea every morning.

    Love these tea balls. I wish y'all did have one to make kombacha as metal is not good to use when making tea for kombacha, right??

    Response from CFH: Preparing the tea with stainless steel is acceptable. It is the SCOBY itself that cannot be in contact with metal.

  2. It works

  3. Okay.

    I was surprised that the mesh was not just a bit finer as the holes still allow a fair amount of tea leaves to sift through. This means you still need a strainer with finer holes if you don't want tea particles left after brewing. (So glad I also ordered the plastic mesh strainer which works great for this!)

    • I have this large one, and I cannot open it! What's the trick?
    • To open the Mesh Tea Ball Infuser, gently twist the top to the left and then pull the two sides apart. To replace the lid, line up the grooves and push together. Then twist to the right until secure.

    • Straining the seeds out of kefir is a bit of a pain. Suppose I put the seeds in this ball, and suspended the ball in the milk. Then I'd just need to pull out the ball to remove the seeds. Since it's made of stainless steel, it shouldn't cause any chemical complications. Do you think this would work?
    • This would be fine as long as the grains have plenty of room in the tea ball and you're sure it is stainless steel. It would be helpful to swirl the tea ball around in the jar a few times during the culturing process. This will more evenly distribute the yeast and bacteria throughout the milk and give the grains better access to fresh food.
