A tea strainer can be made from various materials such as metal, glass and bamboo, etc. The porcelain strainer not only has a beautiful appearance, but also, it is easy to use and clean.
Some people may confuse a tea strainer with a tea funnel. Tea funnels don’t have a filter. It is placed on top of the teapot to facilitate pouring tea leaves into the teapot and to prevent tea leaves from falling outside.
