Cookies on a plate, or, I was not meant to be a tea snob.

I was not meant to be a tea snob. Seriously I finally ordered the Fiesta teapot I've had my eye on for almost a year now. I got it in Paprika, a rich reddish brown. Like the cookie plate above.

But in typical enthusiastic fashion I also ordered some loose tea, because true tea snobs sniff at tea bags.

But the tea balls (infusers?) I got at the local store don't do such a great job at straining finely textured herbal teas. If anyone out there can point me in the direction of a tea ball big enough for an 8 cup tea pot (not as big as you think it is) and doesn't leak leaves, please let me know, please?
