Most tea bag coasters are made from ceramic, bone china or melamine. Ceramic is great quality and lightweight. It can usually be cleaned in the dishwasher. Bone china is elegant and durable. While it appears delicate, it’s very strong and boasts a sophisticated look.
Melamine is lightweight, practically unbreakable and has the feel of porcelain or ceramic. It’s elegant but affordable, and can be cleaned in the dishwasher after use. If your household is full of kids likely to know the new coaster off your worktop, melamine is your best bet!
Tea bag coasters tend to be very small, with space for just a few tea bags. Larger coasters are available, and these can also be used to rest your teaspoon. If you drink a lot of tea, look for a coaster at least 10cm long and high.
Tea bag coasters come in a range of designs, but by far the most common is a teapot shape. You’ll also find they come with different decorations, some with an inspiring motif and others with simple illustrations. If the traditional teapot shape doesn’t take your fancy, there’s a range of alternatives to choose from.
