How to Use a Cotton Strainer
A cotton tea strainer is a very useful accessory for those who prefer whole leaf teas. It allows you to brew tea to any taste, aroma, and strength.
Follow these simple steps to use it properly
1) add one teaspoon per cup of your desired tea leaves to the strainer
2) place the strainer into the teapot or tea mug
3) add hot water
4) let the tea steep for four or five minutes (steeping time can vary a lot depending on which type of tea you are using)
5) serve and enjoy
After using your cotton tea strainer clean it using warm water and then let it dry. Don't use any soap or detergents.
After several uses, your cotton tea strainer will gradually adopt a brownish colour from tea stains. This is a natural process. Do not bleach it.
What is Whole Leaf Tea?
Whole Loaf Tea is tea made of unbroken leaves. This allows the tea to retain all of its beneficial properties. For this reason, it is considered healthier than other tea varieties.
