woven brass : large tea strainer
This solid brass tea strainer is woven by hand in India. This beautiful and practical tea basket can fit in a mug or tea pot. Due to it's depth, you can fill it all the way to the top for a larger pour (for tea pot's) or half way for a single dose. Its double handles rest gently on the rim and can be used to brew or strain loose-leaf tea, flowers, and more. Over time, the brass will acquire a rich patina.
Basket 2.25" Dia x 2.75" H
Place loose herbs within the basket and place in a mug or tea pot, and pour hot water through it. Steep tea for 5minutes, or as long as recommended.
Instructions for Care
To keep these strainers clean, simply rinse and dry after each use. Do not let them stay immersed in water. The brass does not oxidize if properly taken care of.
