Finally found a new source for new affordable tea balls. I add a vintage piece, or an interesting piece, to the chain on the ball creating designer tea balls. These are cute hanging on a tiny nail on the wall close to your teapot for easy access. Tea ball is stainless steel and still in its original package.
You jus hook the hook to the spout of the tea pot and the design hangs down and looks very nice while the tea brews!
