One of the benefits of using stainless steel is the ease of maintenance. Stainless steel is non-reactive and easy to clean, ensuring that flavours and odours from previous brews do not linger. A quick rinse is usually sufficient to keep the strainer in pristine condition. The crystal elements are securely attached to the strainer, and can be moved to one side during the cleaning process.
Furthermore, the combination of stainless steel and crystal ensures that the strainer's functional aspects remain at the forefront. The robustness of stainless steel mesh guarantees effective filtration, producing a clear and smooth cup of tea that retains the flavours and aromas of the brew. The crystal decorations, while enhancing the overall appeal, do not compromise the strainer's core purpose.
However, it is worth noting that crystals should not come into direct contact with food or beverages that you plan to consume.
