Kanaami-Tsuji infuser/strainer (stainless steel with metal handle)


Kanaami-Tsuji of Kyoto continue a tradition of metal wire weaving that goes back over one thousand years. Using copper and stainless steel wire Kenichi Tsuji and his son Toru Tsuji weave some of Japan’s most beautiful kitchen and tea utensils in their original tortoise or chrysanthemum patterns, which has earned Kenichi an award from Kyoto City for his contribution to the promotion of traditional craft.

The strainers are formed by the skilful craft of hand knitting stainless steel wire to make the shape and finished with stainless steel mesh and a stainless steel wire handle. Although these are designed as strainers, they can also be used as an infuser for making tea in a shallow cup or as a sift for matcha tea.
