Tea Infuser

I was inspired by a recent post by Angela at 
to drive several miles north to visit T.J. Maxx.  

I found this cute Ribbit Tea Infuser by Joie.
I purchased it for our Daughter #2, Laurel. 
She collects frogs, and recently has become more
serious about tea brewing and tea drinking. 

 Instructions on the back of the package:
1. Fill infuser with loose tea. 
2. Close. Immerse in boiling water and steep to taste. 
3. After steeping, place the infuser in the holder. 

Just like her mom (me), Laurel loves little surprise gifts. 
She will like this little gift because of the frog, and it's perfect for
brewing a mug of tea.
"The flavour of tea can become very unpleasant if the leaves 
stand for too long in the hot water. "

How cute and what a fun little surprise gift.

Cute infuser, and it is large enough to allow the tea leaves plenty of room to expand. There are a few TJ Maxx stores in my area, but I don't visit them as often as I should.

Oh, yippee, T.J. Maxx owes me another $20 for a referral. (Just kidding, although that WOULD be a nice idea!) I hope she likes the new infuser, and how perfect for her!

Oh I love it. I need to go near TH Maxx tomorrow, I think I might just have to stop there and check it out.

How cute! I wish I had better access to TJ Maxx, it's a couple of hours' drive to one - but you can surely find some cute things there. Great gift.

That tea infuser will surely put a smile on your daughter's face!
