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. "
