Heart Tea Strainer HTS by Beehive Handmade
Sandra Bonazoli and Jim Dowd of Beehive Handmade creates this artistic, Heart Tea Strainer. For a delicious cup of tea, steep one tablespoon of loose tea for each person plus one for the teapot. Once brewed to the desired strength, place the strainer over your tea cup and pour. The strainer will catch the tea leaves, and the accompanying rest holds the strainer, protecting your table from drips. The strainer and rest are hand cast from lead free pewter in Beehive's original molds. Please hand wash this set to keep it looking its best! Strainer measures 6 inches (15.25 cm) long.
Handmade in the USA.
Shipping: approximately one week.

Environmental Commitment: Many of our business practices are in place not simply because they are cost effective or efficient, but are designed in order to lower our environmental impact, which we consider a core value of doing business and creating beautiful and useful objects for the home.
"We use only recycled paper in our office and recycle all our paper, junk mail, and cardboard (no small feat!). Our packing peanuts are made from bio-degradable material. Our products come in boxes that are made from recycled, unbleached paper, and are most often nestled in a natural, compostable material. There is very little in the manufacture of our products that creates waste: any reject castings get re-melted, and we recycle every bit of our scrap metals. And of course all of our pewter is lead–free, without any electroplating, to protect the health of our water."
"We are proud to be a US based company working with local and national suppliers for our metal, cardboard, and paper packaging to create our products. This reduces the carbon footprint of each product as well as insures that the highest environmental standards are met."
