This is a tea strainer that is similar to the ones I actually used when I was in England.  It is used when you brew the tea directly in the pot.  You hold the top portion over your up to strain out the leaves and then replace it on the bottom portion, which will catch any remaining liquid.

This is a neat little cup for use with tea bags.  It has a hole in the top for the bag sting.  It also came with these little tea bag holders for the used bags.
