Gourd Tea Strainer
According to the five element theory, the relationships of generating or overcoming of the five elements shapes the world. They are the complementary processes: the yin and yang.
In traditional Chinese tea culture, there shouldn’t be any metal at the tea table because it conflicts with tea’s nature as a wood element. Most strainers are metal, that’s why offer for those who prefer strained tea, our Gourd Tea Strainer, hand-crafted to our specifications in Taiwan.
Made from a dried hulu gourd with nylon mesh carefully hand-sewn into the bowl, our strainer is sized to nestle into the mouth of a standard-sized pitcher and makes quick work of removing the stray leaf that may escape from your teapot. It’s an elegant, traditional, and natural addition to your collection of tea implements.
