I usually just blast some water as forcefully as my faucet can pour it back through the spout, to push the leaves back into the body of the pot where I can easily rinse them out. Fortunately, I happen to prefer lighter steamed japanese greens, and have a nice group of shiboridashis, and so don't often have to deal with post-fuka cleanup in my kyusus.
First I endeavor to prevent leaves from getting stuck in the first place. The leaves most apt to get stuck are the tiny, dry, unopened leaves. So as I pour water in, I pour over the filter which tends to keep these away from the screen til they have had the opportunity to open up.
I actually continue with this practice for each steep ...
I never seem to have any remnants after simply rinsing away with the spray attachment.
That's a great Idea, Chip! I'm going to have to try that with for my next sencha session.
