This exquisite strainer has a tightly-woven basket, perfect for filtering out fine particles from steeped sencha, gyokuro, and other green teas.   With its long, easy-to-hold handle and shallow basket, it is principally designed to be used as a pour-through strainer (it will not reach deeply enough into a cup or teapot to act as a steeping strainer).  It will fine-filter steeped tea being poured from a teapot into either teacups or a serving teapot or pitcher.
This type of strainer is necessary for many East Asian green teas and semiball-rolled oolongs that ‘shed’ trapped particles as they steep.
