For all the tea drinkers out there, now might be the time to switch to loose leaf tea if you haven't already. It's more environmentally friendly than tea bags and there are tons of really cute tea infuser options!

Like this adorable tea infuser from Fred and Friends that's a sloth. This little guy is designed to make drinking tea more fun and less wasteful.

Shop: Fred SLOW BREW Sloth Tea Infuser, $9.79

It's reusable, non-toxic and made with BPA-free silicone. Plus, the silicone is tasteless, so you don't have to worry about it affecting the actual taste of your tea, according to the product description.

And besides all the cuteness, we really like that it conveniently hangs on the side of your cup. That way you won't have to reach down into scolding hot water to retrieve the tea leaves. All you have to do is put the loose leaf tea inside and dunk the infuser into your cup of hot water. Then sit back and let it brew! Once you're done, you can toss out the tea leaves and throw the infuser into the dishwasher.

Although many shoppers have raved about the sloth infuser, other animals are available. You can get the infuser as a cat, dog, elephant, hedgehog, llama or rabbit.

"My sloth is so cute and absolutely amazing," one reviewer wrote. "Perfectly infused tea and it’s super easy to clean out the sloth. Food grade silicone and it’s microwave/dishwasher safe too. Although it opens up easy enough to clean it properly without the dishwasher. Highly recommend"

Another buyer gifted it to their friend.

"I bought this as a gift for a friend who loves tea. The sloth is made of two food-safe silicone pieces that are easily squeezed apart, but securely attach together. He hangs out on the inside of the cup while her tea steeps, and is way cuter than a traditional tea steep."
