Tea Matter Melodic Tea Stainer


Award winning designer Alan Chan created the Tea Matter Collection for Alessi as a tribute to the Chinese tea house tradition. In ancient China, men would bring their exotic birds to the tea house. From their exquisite cages, the birds would sing and the men would sing along while enjoying their tea. As a modern homage to this tradition, the bird shaped tea strainer perches in a cage – lift him out or place him back and you are rewarded with a melodic chirp. The strainer can be used when pouring from a teapot, and the base of the cage acts as a drip tray.
