TEA WARE AND UTENSILS

Dear loving readers,


As promised in my earlier post, I will brief you on other tea utensils used for preparing tea.


Always remember that having your favorite tea is only half the battle. To enjoy this delightful beverage at its best, you also need the appropriate tea wares and utensils.


STRAINERS


Tea strainers are made of variety of materials such as earthenware, porcelain, aluminum and stainless steel. The most crucial point to note when choosing it is that it should have a very fine mesh so as to prevent you from getting a murky cup of tea.




STAINLESS STEEL STRAINER


Stainless steel strainer with handler is used to catch leaves when pouring tea.





GLASS KETTLE


To get the most out of your tea, you need a tea kettle to boil the water. Tea kettles are used to boil water only. The pot that you steep the tea in is called a tea pot, and generally you don’t put tea pots on the stove like you do with kettles.


Glass kettle with wooden handler at the marble top. A very important handy feature to have on a tea kettle is a heat-resistant handle. It is much easier to pour water to your tea pot because you don’t have to worry about hurting yourself when you pick up the handle.


For the benefit of everyone, I opted for the glass kettle for easy monitoring of the boiling water so as to prevent the water from being over boiled.



A complete set comprises of tea pot, tea cup, Pu'er tea cake (Elephant brand from Yunnan Province, China) , glass kettle and rosewood tea utensil as follow:-


Tea Shuffle - shuffles tea leaves
Tea Digger - digs expended tea leaves from teapots
Tea Needle - prevents spout blockage
Vase - provides home for all tools .



Trust you find it useful and of assistance. Make sure you spread the word to your friends.  Don't forget to leave your comments ...thanks for the support. Hope you guys enjoy.
