A good tea strainer is a big part of a more pleasant experience. I wanted to design a simple shaped tea strainer that would be easy to use and effortless to clean.


The T-Finger is a cylinder-shaped strainer and its top half is diagonally cut to ensure a steady grip.

It is easy to clean because it’s open and it doesn’t have any additional parts.


The T-Finger’s prototype is made from ABS plastic (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), but eventually it is designed to be made from glazed ceramic because the material is used in kitchenware and it gives the T-Finger a glossy, smooth finish.
