Switch to loose leaf teas and reduce waste with the Speckled Tea Strainer Mug from Nepal.  White and speckled ceramic glaze, with a terracotta strainer, creates a crisp and clean looking mug that speaks volumes in its simple beauty.  This mug is handcrafted by artisans working with Sana Hastakala, a Nepalese fair trade organization working with independent producers, mainly women in rural areas throughout the country.


Try one of our triple-pack of loose leaf JusTea Purple Teas would make a lovely pairing with this Strainer Mug.  These teas are completely unique to Kenya, full of antioxidants (more than green tea) and less than half the caffeine.  You'll love matching these delicious teas with this beautiful Speckled Tea Strainer Mug, whether you gift them to a friend or save one for yourself.


"Sana Hastakala, which means "small handicraft" in Nepali, is a nongovernmental, nonprofit export organization based in Kathmandu. Sana Hastakala works to preserve the rich artistic skill and traditions of Nepali artisans, and provides additional training and marketing assistance to artisans. Eighty percent of the artisans are women; most artisans are uneducated. Sana Hastakala strives to increase its export sales so that additional disadvantaged artisans can improve their economic and social conditions. Profit from sales is used for producer development programs, staff welfare and organizational strengthening."
