Making a perfect cup of tea starts with selecting high-quality leaves and ends with properly straining the brewed tea. While it may seem like a simple process, there are a few things to keep in mind when straining tea so that you can enjoy a delicious cup without any bits of leaves or other debris. In this blog post, we'll walk you through how to strain tea the right way so that you can enjoy a perfectly brewed cup every time.

What You'll Need:

  • Tea strainer (we recommend a fine-mesh strainer)
  • Pitcher or teapot
  • Cup
  • Spoon

Brewing Tea Leaves

Step 1: Place the strainer over your cup.

Step 2: Spoon the brewed tea into the strainer. Be sure to pour slowly so that the leaves have time to be strained out.

Step 3: Once all of the tea has been strained, remove the strainer and discard the leaves.

Step 4: Enjoy your cup of tea!

Bonus tip: If you're using a teapot, you can place the strainer directly over the pot while pouring so that you don't have to use an extra cup. Just be sure to remove the strainer before serving.


Now that you know how to strain tea properly, you're well on your way to enjoying a delicious cup of your favorite brew. Just remember to use a fine-mesh strainer, pour slowly, and discard the leaves once they've been strained out. And if you're using a teapot, you can save yourself an extra step by placing the strainer directly over the pot while pouring. Now go forth and enjoy your perfectly brewed cup of tea!
