A fine blue-glazed ceramic tea strainer set, shaped like a caravan horse carrying a load of tea – or in this case, a tea strainer. The rustic kneeling horse calls up the image of the famous Tea Horse Road trade route for Yunnan’s puer tea. The pale blue glaze accentuates the strainer’s relief carving of a peony flower in the exposed tan-colored clay beneath. The strainer is lined with thin fabric mesh to filter out fine tea particles and escaped leaf bits. A beautiful tea-brewing companion for any setup.
