Product Description


Why is this strainer so small, you might ask. How can it hold enough tea to even make a tiny cup? You don't actually steep tea in it. This is for pouring-through. Say you have a nice gaiwan or yixing teapot that doesn't include or fit a strainer. What to do? Just throw the leaves straight into the pot, add your water, and when its ready, pour the entire contents of the teapot through this strainer. Since most gaiwans and yixing pots are pretty small you should be able to empty the pot entirely into either a mug, some small tasting cups, or a Cha Hai (see elsewhere on this site).

Nepal Himalayan Gold

Grown at high elevation in the Himalayan Mountains, this tea is composed of beautifully spiraled young growth. The flavor transcends the norms of tea grown in this region; it has an initial note of deep malt that transitions to squash and chocolate, finishing with a classic sweet linger associated with Darjeeling. This makes for a wonderfully nuanced cup of tea
