What is a tea infuser used for?

A Tea Infuser is used to make tea using Loose leaves i.e. brewing tea by taking a specific amount (~4g for 2 people, 8g for 4) of loose leaf tea and putting it inside the infuser. The infuser is then dropped into a cup or a teapot for the amount of time needed for the tea to brew (depending on the tea, from 2 – 5 minutes). When the tea has been brewed, the infuser with the remains of leaves is removed from the brewing vessel so the tea may be poured/enjoyed.

There are several variants of infusers as they can come in many shapes, sizes and designs – their purpose remains the same however!
