10 Best Tea Strainers
Finum Brewing Basket
The Finum Brewing Basket is designed to fit right into your favorite mug thanks to the two flanges on top that keep it from being fully submerged. Its high-quality stainless steel mesh means it is resistant to both corrosion and stains.
Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru
The Hario Chacha Kyusu Maru features a large fine-mesh strainer that allows leaves to float and steep properly for full flavor extraction. Its wide-mouth spout prevents it from dripping onto counters, while its wide top opening makes it easy to clean.
Tilevo Dinosaur Set
Although it’s not suitable for the absolute finest of leaves, the Tilevo Dinosaur Set is just so darn cute that it’s hard not to love it. Each arrives with two charming new friends, one turquoise and one green, both a snap to wash when you’re finished.
The Teablee Brew-in-Mug not only looks great with its food grade stainless steel design, but its super fine mesh is highly efficient at straining fine loose teas, too. Its wide brim makes it suitable to fit onto cups with diameters ranging from 2.6 inches up to 4.6 inches.
Schefs Premium Infuser
With the Schefs Premium Infuser you have an indestructible little device that’s always ready to take a dip in hot water without leaving behind loose leaf debris. Its chain and hook make it easy to retrieve from a boiling kettle or steaming mug.
House Again 4-Pack
Each in the House Again 4-Pack comes with a coaster on which it can be placed after use, preventing a desk or countertop from suffering drips and stains. The set’s different colors make it easy to keep beverages and drinkers organized.
Forlife Extra Fine
The Forlife Extra Fine is designed to fit snugly over any 3-inch-wide mug or teapot. Its insulated lid helps retain heat during the immersion process, while a rubber ring ensures fingers aren’t scalded when taking it off. It can be used with coarse ground coffee, too.
Oxo Good Grips 3-Inch
The Oxo Good Grips 3-Inch is a great kitchen tool in general as well as a suitable strainer, provided you’re willing to fill the mug or teapot right to the top to ensure submersion. It balances well when placed on cups, strains thoroughly, and is easy to clean.
Me.Fan Silicone Bags
The Me.Fan Silicone Bags have removable bases that are easy to take off while maintaining enough resistance to stay in place while steeping. Though the translucent bodies are prone to staining over time, they are also dishwasher friendly.
Ipow Mesh Strainer
The Ipow Mesh Strainer is constructed entirely from lead-free, non-magnetic stainless steel that holds heat and imparts no flavors to beverages. Its keep-hot lid doubles as a tray when it’s time to remove it from a cup or small teapot.
