Take a look at Holy Mountain Trading Co., they have the filters you've been looking for.

Why do you have to have it fit inside your can? I use my filter basket from my Teavana tetsubin, dosnt go it the can but its always handy.

thanks a lot for the link. But they dont carry anything smaller than 55mm, I need about 50mm(2 inches) to be able to fit inside the can. since matcha powder sticks to everything i rinse the basket and let dry but I already forgot 2 behind. having something that will fit inside will be neat. i bought a matcha canister but kind big compared to the matcha can and wont fit in my nodate, plus its not as airtight as the cans.

I have seen very small baskets at Teavana tetsubins. too bad they dont sell it separately.

By the way, you could always make your own. Just get some fine mesh from a local hardware store and a metal ring of the right diameter, glue with heat/moisture resistant glue, and there you go! You could have it be the perfect size, plus it might cost a little less.

Thanks for the link. its a bit too much for a strainer. since they mentioned Beehouse i checked their website and its cheaper but with shipping(8.00) its not worth it.

I'm not that handy... :roll: Maybe i will put a request on Etsy!

Right now im browsing amazon for a cheap teapot that comes with a basket. It kind makes me think what am I doing on a sunday afternoon looking for a piece of teaware. Im having way too much tea lately... :lol:
