About Obi-ami style


 Obi-ami style stainless tea strainer surrounds a wall in a teapot is characterized by having a wider aspect than any tea strainer. For that reason, tea will come out easily without tea leaves clogging when you put in tea.This teapot is more expensive than stainless steel net removable type.As to a teapot before, there is no problem with this when the tea leaves are rough tea, but if it is fine tea leaves like deep steamed tea, there was a case that the net clogged and tea came out poorly or overflowed from the top.
Therefore, this tea strain was developed at Tokoname-yaki. A band - shaped stainless steel net circles around the inside of the teapot.There is no clogging because all the gaps formed between the teapot and the net become the exit of tea.And, since there is no tea left in the teapot, you can drink delicious tea next time again.
