Choose the right accessory
Drinking tea while working can be of great help, because it promotes relaxation, improves concentration and cognitive functions and also gives energy to face the day. Experts advise that drinking tea after having lunch can help eliminate that heaviness that strikes in the early afternoon.

When it is possible to heat water, in order to save space and for convenience, you will have to forget about teapots and use less traditional tools to simplify the infusion process.
You could use a mug fitted with an infuser – mug , perfect for the office as it is really small.
By using such a type of glass mug, you will be able to let your loose tea steep while you work, watching the color of the water through the glass, so you will know when your drink is ready to be consumed.
