8 Useful and Playful Herb Infusers
There are tons of cute tea infusers but when comes to herb infusers, there are only a few choices. Personally, I actually don’t mind chewing loose tea leaves but for herbs and spices, honestly I really don’t want to either have a bite nor stick them in my teeth. Hence, having a proper herb infuser is really important for me. Maybe soup is not as fancy as tea, most herb infusers look quite humble. They do do a great job to keep my fresh herbs and whole spices and deliver flavor. But why they can’t just like tea infusers, having many playful and cute designs? After doing some research, I do find several interesting designs and some of them are quite hilarious. From chicken shape to bone shape, from chill shape to cactus shape, if you think they are too funny, I also list some “serious looking” herb infusers at the bottom.
