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 its depth, you can fill it all the way to the top for a larger pour (for tea pot) or half way for a single dose. Its long handle makes it easy to handle and place in a mug, or large tea pot. It can be used to brew any kind of loose leaf tea, herbs or flowers.
