This adorable bamboo tea strainer is not exactly “traditional” – that would be a teapot – but it has a charming old-fashioned style that will bring a warm smile to you or your guest. Big enough to be used for multiple mugs, but intended as a single-serving tool (when packed overfull, leaves do not steep as thoroughly). Most of our full-leaf teas will infuse very effectively, but with occasional larger gaps between woven bamboo strips, some small particles may fall through.
Easy to rinse out, but fragile – we recommend rinsing only, not scrubbing, and it probably will not fare well in a dishwasher. As a natural fiber product, this strainer will gradually absorb colors of teas and herbal infusions.
