This is an attractive pass-through strainer made of carved bamboo with a piece of linen serving as the filtering mechanism. This type of strainer is necessary for many East Asian green teas and semiball-rolled oolongs that ‘shed’ trapped particles as they steep.
The wonderfully gnarled handle, which is crafted from the root of a bamboo plant, is notched, allowing it to rest on the lip of your teacup or serving pitcher as you pour your steeped tea through it to filter out any released fine particles.
These are examples…each one is unique and will be similar to, but not identical to, the ones pictured.
Price is for one strainer.
