Infusion Mug Buyer’s Guide
Using an infusion mug is such a clever idea, it avoids the mess and effort of brewing a pot especially if you only want one cup. Many of these lovely mugs have lids and are portable and our buyer’s guide will help you determine the best infusion mug for your busy lifestyle.
An infuser mug does just what it says on the mug, infuses loose tea or coffee via a metal or glass infuser allowing you to brew one perfect cup either on the go or at home.
Capacity is given in millilitres so just choose your size. Make sure a more generous mug has sound thermal insulation so you can enjoy every delicious drop piping hot.
If you are out and about then check out the securing lid if you want a portable mug that won’t spill or leak, less of an issue for around the house or the office and a lid will keep the contents warmer.
Ease of Cleaning
Almost every brand is dishwasher safe but always check the product labelling if you are unsure. The integral filters are easy to remove and clean separately.
High quality ceramic or glass will last and last, always look carefully at the design of the handle as this can be a weak point for breakages or cracks. The handle should be man enough to support the mug and its contents.
