Tea strainers in the form of tongs are sometimes the best option. Choose the largest one that fits so that the tea leaves have room to move around a bit. If the tea leaves are squeezed together, they won't be able to release all the fine aromas. That's why we don't sell the smallest models. We have different sizes to choose from.
The dimension refers to the diameter of the ball.
NOTE! Also works great if you want e.g. cocoa or icing sugar on the cake. Fill and shake!
