The strainer is PERFECT being used over my large mug. It catches the obvious large leaves but catches the littles as well. Drinking tea is a ritual and one I am totally enjoying made possible by using my perfect tea pot and overcup strainer. And BTW, I’ve used it with more than 6 different varieties of tea from this company and the are all divine. I would highly recommend the product to all my tea drinking and buying friends. Its a great stocking stuffer too.
The strainer and holder are both functional and quite pretty. The strainer fits over most cups and the metal does not oxidise with use. Reasonably priced too
Practical and attractive - thank you
The over cup strainer is excellent. It makes pouring tea into a cup the next best step before taking a sip of whichever Rare Tea variety I’m set to enjoy. Prior to the strainer appearing in my life, I’d had trouble enjoying loose leaf tea. I seemed to pour enough leaves out of the pot with the infusion to find several fortunes to tell in the bottom of my cups. That’s something I used to hear about. Reading tea leaves in the bottom of the cup. Great for tea leaf readers, not so good for this tea drinker. So, I highly recommend this lovely and elegant accessory in the making of a perfect cup of tea. It is peerless.
