Message from the maker
Hi, my name is Qingfeng Li. I am 45 years old and have been working with the company for 13 years. I have found well paying, consistent, and satisfying work through this job. I live in Anping County with my family and my hobbies are singing and Kung Fu. Each morning I get up early and go to practice it with my friends. I made the hole part of the tea strainer. By making it have uniform hole size, customers are satisfied after using. I hope you love the tea strainer as much as we do.
The strainer was made at a factory located in Anping county in the Hebei Province in China. The monthly minimum wage in the Hebei Province is 1380 RMB. However, the the makers at the factory are paid RMB 19/hour, thus 3040 RMB per month which is equivalent to £355 a month. Work is 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. Workers are given time off for holidays based on China’s labor laws. To ensure the health and safety for their works, the factory gives annual health checks and provides good food, fruits and vegetables to the workers through their factory canteen. The workers also have a union, and their feedback is highly valued by the company.
Product care & end of life
If tea stains occur, simply use baking soda dissolved in warm water. Then wipe tea strainer after use to keep it in a great condition.
