Dull weather outside so I ended up photographing this teapot. I took a notion to try loose leaf tea, forgetting that I don't have a tea strainer any more. I have looked around various shops and can't find tea strainers anywhere. It looks like the assumption is you are either using tea bags or buying one of these things, a teapot with a container inside for the leaves. It's glass and shiny so it may feature in future blips.
