More Tea Stainers

Some of you mentioned having tea stainers that fit into the small tea pots and this reminded me that I have those too. These small tea pots hold about two cups of tea. The little strainer baskets fit inside so the tea leaves don't have to sit in the water too long. I find the tea gets bitter when it stays in the water/pot too long.
Actually the blue tea pot had a matching ceramic tea strainer, but I found the holes in the strainer were too big and some tea leaves escaped through the strainer, so I use the one above.

More info about tea below.

Thank you for your interest, please leave a comment! And please do return soon!

This is a little bit uncanny....I came over to tell you that I had something for you on my blog and I see where another Betty has left a comment that she has something for you on her blog also. I hope you say yes to both of us.....Betty @ Country Charm

Katherine, it has been so fun looking at all your tea strainers and reading your posts regarding tea. We enjoy tea quite a bit here ourselves and it's always fun to see someone who loves it like we do. :)

Those ceramic strainers never do quite work, do they. There is a tearoom blog I read and they use pots like your little yellow one. They have them in 4 or 5 different colors and it looks so pretty when they are all lined up, ready to go out.

It's funny, I don't like the taste of hot tea, but I think tea things are so cute.

I do drink iced tea, though, unsweetened and decaffeinated.
