thai tea steeper/infuser


Hello, i'm trying to find thai tea steeper/infuser and having hard time doing that. i'm in nyc. i went to thai store on Mosco st in chinatown but the guy said he ran out. i tried almost every store/supermarket in that area and noone has it. i tried searching amazon and the web but all i could find was a steel steeper/infuser. can anyone suggest a thai specialty store in ny metro area or a site on the web where i can find it? thanks

Question - what's the difference between a Thai infuser and any other infuser? Just curious - I've never heard of a Thai Tea Infuser before.

All the actual Thai people I know use drip coffeemakers to make their iced tea.
The real problem is getting high quality tea. Too much of the Thai tea powder you see in the US is cut with cheaper teas and has coloring added. --scott

Thai iced tea is made with a finely powdered material. Sometimes it's just tea, but more often it has some star anise and poontalai added to it in order to use cheaper tea with less of an anise flavour to it. But the stuff is so fine that it would go right through a conventional tea basket. --scott

I see - not to do a plug for my store, but I think I have a product that might help. The IngenuiTEA has a filter at the bottom that is extremely fine - similar to that of a permanent mesh coffee filter. Also, I think paper filters would work as well. Wouldn't a french press work too? If you'd like a coupon for my store, just email me.

A french press would leak a lot, and I suspect that the IngenuiTEA would as well. Paper coffee filters are the usual solution these days... usually folks will make a large quantity at a time and stick it in the fridge, so you need a large filter that won't clog. --scott
