I heart tea


When you’re desperate for a cuppa, waiting for your tea to strain can be like watching paint dry. Ease the pain with this super cute strainer from beehivekitchenware. Inspired by vintage kitchenware, this pewter one includes a matching rest that — oh so helpfully — catches the drips that fall after you’ve strained your tea. While it gets points for being useful and sturdy, its design is also beautiful: Featuring a heart and arrow, it makes every cup of tea that little bit sweeter. Hand-wash to keep it in tip-top condition.

My tea, my time


With just one little charm, this strainer sums up what the act of making tea represents: the chance to relax and take a break. In other words, "me time". This infuser is quite large (two inches wide), which according to the creator, TillaHomestead, gives the leaves the room they need to breathe. The charm is a little bit of genius in itself. Constructed from a bottle cap, it has been doused in glitter and sealed with a swirl — how creative. Just rinse the ball part and let it dry after use; and simply wipe the charm with a washcloth.

A touch of turquoise


This "mystic strainer" is not only as gorgeous as a tea strainer can be, but it also has an interesting story behind it. The designer, mysticdukkan, is really into gemstones, so when she uses one, you know it means something. In this case, the turquoise gem hanging off the end of the strainer is a symbol of wealth and positive energy. A pick-me-up and some good fortune with your tea? We’ll take two, thanks! Oh, and the actual strainer is practical, too: Made from stainless steel, it just needs a quick hand wash between uses.

Mum's the word


If mum’s partial to a good cup of tea, then we’ve got your next birthday/Mother’s Day/anniversary gift sorted. Made by LLFarm, this infuser features a two-inch strainer decorated with two lovey-dovey charms: "Mom" is etched into one heart, and the other is pretty all on its own. The strainer bit is made from stainless steel, so again, all you need to do is give it a good rinse in between morning teas. By the way, if you’re a fan of organic and herbal goodies, we recommend you browse LLFarm’s shop as you sip away…
