- This silver and glass herbal tea infuser is composed of two conical forms set atop one another. The base cone contains an alcohol fuel source with a wick. Water is placed in the upper conical vessel. Tea leaves are placed inside a perforated ball suspended from the lid inside the upper chamber. The flame from the lower cone licks the base of the water chamber and heats it to a simmer producing an infused herbal beverage. Three triangular-shaped legs support the upper vessel and one leg acts as a handle to tip the tea into a cup without lifting the other two legs off the table. The silver lid pivots on pins to allow for refilling and cleaning.
