Cleaning tea baskets or built in filters

by beforewisdom » Jun 22nd 16 3:26 pm

I don't know how it is for dark tea, but it seems hard to clean green tea leaves out of pots with built in steel filters or even removable steel baskets. The spent leaves just seem to stick.

Is there a special technique, brush, or tool?

Thanks

The built in ones can be annoying but as for the removable ones. .. I tend to use the washing up brush and it tends to work OK.

To be honest though I tend not to use a basket at all I find it easier to go straight in the pot. I had a bean sprouter (see below) lying around unused, so now when it comes to disposing of leaves I just rinse with water into the sprouter and the water drips away and then the mostly dry leaves go in the bin the next day much less mess!
