“Berry” Good Strainer
Today’s Equipment: Trudeau Silicone Fruit-shaped Tea Strainer
Tested by: caclob
Since I drink such large amounts of tea, especially in the frigid Swiss winters, I’m on the look-out for new tea paraphernalia at nearly all times. A new tea strainer definitely is a nice addition. The Trudeau silicone tea strainer was just so cute looking that I couldn’t resist the urge to buy it. For about $7.50, you can get this lovely reusable tea strainer. Everything is silicone, so it’s microwave and dishwasher safe, making it easier to clean and letting you use it in more ways.
The strainer is a berry shape that is easily filled. The strainer handle is silicone and can be tied around the mug handle, so you don’t lose the strainer in the mug. A lid/saucer in the shape of a slice of citrus is also silicone and can be put over the tea while steeping and as a saucer. Cleanup is so simple.
They’re cute, come in a variety of colors, work well, and aren’t too unreasonable in price. I recommend them fully.
