Stainless Steel Tea Strainer

Most tea bags contain plastic. This isn't compostable or recyclable, so switching to loose leaf tea can save hundreds of plastic tea bags from landfill or incineration every year.

- This tea strainer is the ideal size for teapots, mugs and wide glass bottles.

- It has handles on both sides for easy, scald free lifting. The lid doubles as a saucer for the strainer to avoid any spills and drips after brewing.

- Fine mesh filters even the smallest tea leaves, giving you mess-free tea

- Easy to clean, dishwasher safe

Materials: Food grade stainless steel that keeps your drink free from odour and taste of metal

Packaging: Cardboard box
