Tea tongs refer to the type of teaware used to hold and dip tea bags or leaves into a mug of hot water. They are ideal for solo brewing. Depending on your preference, you can either use the balls or the tweezers. 

More About Tea Tongs ▼

Bamboo tea tongs feature tweezers-like shapes. They are made from high-quality and durable bamboo wood found in specific farms in Japan or China. Just like any other type of teaware, they come in different sizes (lengths) and shapes. However, the scissor-like design cut across all bamboo tweezers. 

Bamboo tongs are the safest way to brew any solo tea. Generally, they work great with loose leaves.

 

Using tea tongs

1. Select the leaves

The resultant brew is determined by the quality and the quantity of the tea leaves used. For solo brewing, you don’t necessarily need a large number of tea leaves. Even ten leaves can do. Check through the leaves and decide on the best leaves. 

2. Fill the cup with water

Boiling water is the most preferable when it comes to solo brewing. It extracts the leaves faster hence reducing the amount of time used.  

3. Clip the tea leaves 

Unlike the ball tea tongs, the two ends of the bamboo tea tongs are spread apart. Pick the tea leaves by squeezing the tong at the centre. The amount of leaves to pick depends on the working area of the tong.

4. Dip the leaves into the water

Once the leaves are tightly held between the tongs, use one hand to hold the mug and the other to dip the leaves in the water. Keep the leaves for about 3-7 minutes until they are extracted enough. Finally, pull out the leaves to leave behind an infused drink. You can go ahead and check whether the drink is tasty enough to determine whether you need additional leaves or not.
