Description

本発明は、湯飲み茶碗等の飲茶用容器に直接茶葉を入れて簡便に抽出飲茶することのできる茶漉しに関するものである。 The present invention relates to a tea strainer in which tea leaves are directly put in a dim sum container such as a tea cup and can be extracted and drunk easily.
一般的にお茶を入れる場合、主として次のような五つの方法がとられている。
(イ)緑茶やウーロン茶等では土瓶や急須や泡瓶(取っ手のない急須)等の抽出専用の茶器を用い、また、紅茶類ではティーポットやメリオール等の抽出専用の茶器を使用して、投入した茶葉に湯や水を注いで抽出させた後、別の湯飲み茶碗やティーカップ等の飲茶用容器に注いで飲む。
(ロ)湯飲み茶碗等の飲茶用容器を使用して、直接投入した茶葉に湯や水を注いで抽出させた後、茶葉を飲茶用容器の底に沈ませた状態でそのまま静かに飲む。
(ハ)蓋付茶碗を使用して、直接投入した茶葉に湯や水を注いで抽出させた後、蓋を茶碗の縁上で少し滑らして、茶碗本体の飲み口と蓋との間に隙間をつくり、茶葉がその隙間を通り抜けないように気を付けつつ隙間から啜り飲む。
(ニ)従来の最も一般的な茶漉しに示すように、半球状あるいは類似の袋状のこし網を持つ茶漉しを使用して、こし網のふくらみの中に投入した茶葉を飲茶用容器の中に浸して抽出させた後、茶漉しをいったん茶葉ごと飲茶用容器外に取出して飲茶用容器内の茶を飲む。
(ホ)飲茶用容器内にティーバッグを入れて、湯や水を注いで抽出させた後、そのままティーバッグを飲茶用容器の底に沈ませた状態で飲む。またはティーバッグを飲茶用容器外に取出して飲茶用容器内の茶を飲む。
In general, the following five methods are mainly used for tea.
(I) For green tea and oolong tea, etc., we used clay containers, teapots and bubble bottles (teapots without handles) for extraction, and for teas, we used teapots and meliol for extraction. After pouring hot water or water into tea leaves and extracting it, pour it into another drinking cup such as a tea cup or tea cup.
(B) Using a tea drinking container such as a tea cup, pour hot water or water into the tea leaves that have been directly poured, and then drink gently with the tea leaves submerged in the bottom of the tea drinking container.
(C) After using a tea bowl with a lid to pour hot water or water into the tea leaves that were put directly into it, slide the lid a little on the edge of the tea bowl, and there will be a gap between the drinking cup and the lid of the tea bowl body And drink from the gap, taking care not to let the tea leaves pass through the gap.
(D) As shown in the most common tea strainer in the past, using a tea strainer with a hemispherical or similar bag-shaped strainer, the tea leaves put into the strainer's bulge are placed in a tea drinking container. After being soaked in and extracted, the tea strainer is taken out of the tea container together with the tea leaves and drinks tea in the tea container.
(E) Put a tea bag in a drinking tea container, pour hot water or water to extract it, and drink it with the tea bag submerged in the bottom of the drinking tea container. Or take out the tea bag out of the drinking tea container and drink the tea in the drinking tea container.
この内、(イ)の方法は、急須等の抽出専用の茶器と湯飲み茶碗等の飲茶専用の容器の二つの器を使用してお茶を入れるので、お茶を入れる作業は二度手間となって面倒であり、器の置き場所も広いスペースが必要となって使い勝手が悪く、また、器の準備や片付け等の煩雑さは免れず、簡便さを求める生活様式の変化に適応できないものとなっている。 Of these, the method (I) uses two cups, a tea bowl for extraction such as a teapot and a container dedicated to dim sum such as a tea cup, so the work of putting tea is troublesome twice. In addition, a large space is also required for the place where the container is placed, and it is not easy to use. In addition, the trouble of preparing and cleaning up the container is inevitable, and it cannot be adapted to changes in lifestyles that require simplicity. .
また、(イ)の方法は、茶殻の処理等に手間がかかる。急須等の抽出専用の茶器は保温性を考え球体(壺状)に近い形状をしているのが普通で、上部開口部が内部よりも小さくなっていて抽出後の茶殻を取出したり、茶器の内部を洗ったりする作業がやりにくく不便である。さらに、注ぎ口に引っかかった茶葉の除去、茶渋の除去等の面倒があって非常に手間がかかり煩わしい。 In addition, the method (a) takes time to process the tea leaves. Teapots such as teapots that are used exclusively for extraction have a shape close to a sphere (bamboo shape) in consideration of heat retention, and the upper opening is smaller than the inside so that the extracted tea shells can be taken out, It is difficult and inconvenient to wash the inside. Furthermore, it is troublesome and troublesome to remove tea leaves caught on the spout and tea astringency, which is very troublesome and troublesome.
また、(イ)の方法は、茶の味を最も適切に引き出す抽出法として、長い歴史を持ち研究もされてきており、広く認知され使用されてきた方法であるが、お茶をおいしく入れる目的を充分に満たす為には、茶葉の種類、茶葉の量、湯の量、湯の温度、抽出時間等の条件を最適なものに適合させる必要があり、その結果お茶についての知識やお茶を入れる技術の習得が必要と考えられるようになり、お茶は難しいもの、煩わしいものと捉えられるようになってきた。核家族化となり家庭内でのお茶の入れ方、飲み方の伝承がなくなった昨今では、煩雑な作業が嫌われ大衆のお茶離れを招いている。 In addition, the method (a) has long been studied as an extraction method that brings out the taste of tea most appropriately, and has been widely recognized and used. In order to fully satisfy, it is necessary to adapt the conditions such as the type of tea leaves, the amount of tea leaves, the amount of hot water, the temperature of hot water, the extraction time, etc. to the optimal one, and as a result, knowledge about tea and technology to put tea Tea is now considered to be difficult and troublesome. Now that it has become a nuclear family and there is no tradition of how to make and drink tea in the home, it is disliked by complicated work and invites the public to leave tea.
さらに、(イ)の方法は、一人分の茶を入れるには不向きである。一般に市販されている急須等の抽出専用の茶器は数人分(数回分)のお茶を入れる大きさ(容量)で作られているので、その茶器に一人分(一回分)の少量の茶を入れようとすると、茶器にたくさんの熱を吸収されてしまい、湯温が低下して茶葉本来の味を引き出すことができなかったり、湯の量が少ない為に、湯の対流(紅茶でいうジャンピング効果)が起こらずお茶の味を悪くしている。生活様式の変化は家族団欒や接客等の複数人で茶を楽しむ場面が減り、一人単独で茶を飲む生活が多くなっていることから、時代に合った新しい抽出法が求められている。他方、紅茶等には、一度に数人分(数回分)の茶を作ってストックしておく方法があるが、ティーコジー(保温用茶帽子)を使ったり、冷蔵庫に保管したりして、別途温度管理を施す手間が掛かる。特に緑茶やウーロン茶等では抽出後の経時変化(茶の変質)が大きいのでストックするには不適である。 Furthermore, method (a) is unsuitable for serving tea for one person. In general, teapots such as teapots that are commercially available are made in a size (capacity) that can contain tea for several people (several times). If you try to put it in, the tea set will absorb a lot of heat, the temperature of the hot water will fall and you will not be able to bring out the original taste of the tea leaves, or the amount of hot water will be small, so the convection of hot water (jumping in tea) (Effect) does not occur, and the taste of tea is worsened. As lifestyle changes, the number of people enjoying tea with fewer people, such as family members and customers, is decreasing, and there is an increasing number of people who drink tea alone, so new extraction methods that match the times are required. On the other hand, for tea etc., there is a method of making and stocking tea for several people (several times) at a time, but using tea cozy (warm tea hat) or storing it in the refrigerator, separately It takes time and effort to manage the temperature. In particular, green tea and oolong tea are unsuitable for stocking because of the large change over time after the extraction (tea deterioration).
その上、(イ)の方法は、抽出中は保温等の為、急須等の抽出専用の茶器に蓋をして抽出を待つので、抽出中の状況、すなわち茶葉の開き具合、水色(すいしょく)や香りのたち具合等を直接的に観察することができない。一般的においしくお茶を入れるには、購入した茶袋等に記載されている入れ方等を目安にしているが、茶葉は自然物であり同一の状態のものはありえず、最適なお茶の入れ方を数値的に反映させることは極めて困難である。この為、抽出中の茶器の蓋を取り、注湯時の温度の高い時に最も強く感じる香りを嗅いだり、中を覗き見て茶葉の開き具合や水色の濃淡を観察したりして、飲む時期を判断するのであるが、上部開口部が狭まった壺状の茶器の中は暗くて見辛いものであり作業が面倒であるため一般的には行われていない。従って、この(イ)の方法は、直接抽出中の茶葉の状況を目視確認できない抽出法であり、煩わしい割に、茶葉に合った最適な条件を反映させることは困難である。 In addition, since the method (a) keeps heat during the extraction, the teapot dedicated to the extraction such as a teapot is covered and waits for the extraction, so the situation during extraction, that is, how the tea leaves open, light blue (suishoku) ) And scents cannot be observed directly. In general, to put delicious tea, you should use the method described in the purchased tea bag etc., but tea leaves are natural and cannot be in the same state. It is extremely difficult to reflect numerically. For this reason, take the lid of the tea container during extraction, smell the strongest scent you feel when the temperature is high during pouring, look into the inside and observe how the tea leaves open and light blue shades, and when to drink However, the inside of the bowl-shaped tea cup with a narrow upper opening is dark and difficult to see, and is not generally performed because the work is troublesome. Therefore, the method (a) is an extraction method in which the state of the tea leaf being directly extracted cannot be visually confirmed, and it is difficult to reflect the optimum conditions suitable for the tea leaf in spite of being troublesome.
(ロ)の飲茶用容器に直接茶葉を投入して飲む方法は、茶葉が飲茶用容器の底に沈んでいる状態でないと、茶葉が口の周りにまとわり付いてきたり、口の中に入ってくる。その結果上澄みの茶を飲むことになるが、この場合飲茶用容器を揺らすことなく静かに口に運ぶ必要があり、気遣いを強いられて、おいしく飲むことができない。また、茶を飲み進むに従って飲茶用容器は傾斜を強め茶葉が口に入ってくるので、茶を最後まで飲み切ることができない。 (B) The method of putting the tea leaves directly into the drinking tea container and drinking them is not in a state where the tea leaves are sinking to the bottom of the drinking tea container, the tea leaves cling around the mouth, Come in. As a result, it is necessary to drink the clear tea, but in this case, it is necessary to gently bring it to the mouth without shaking the tea drinking container, which is forced to be cared and cannot be drunk deliciously. Also, as you continue to drink tea, the tea-drinking container becomes more inclined and the tea leaves come into your mouth, so you can't drink up the tea to the end.
また、(ロ)の方法は、中国人がガラスのコップに茶葉を投入し、抽出中の茶葉の形の変化を楽しみながら茶を飲む方法に見られるが、この場合の茶葉は中国茶特有の長くて太い形状の大きいものであるため、口の周りに茶葉が近寄ってきても避けることができるのである。それでも、飲み慣れないと口の中に入ってきて煩わしい。中国茶に比べ日本の大半の緑茶は、1枚の葉が小さい形状に製茶されており、ことに深蒸し煎茶の茶葉は更に小さいので、こうした日本の緑茶を飲茶用容器に直接茶葉を投入してそのまま飲む切ることは難しい。 In addition, the method (b) can be seen as a method in which a Chinese person puts tea leaves into a glass cup and drinks tea while enjoying the change in the shape of the tea leaves being extracted. Since it is long and thick, it can be avoided even if tea leaves approach the mouth. Still, if you don't get used to drinking, it gets into your mouth and is annoying. Compared to Chinese tea, most green tea in Japan is made with a small leaf, and the tea leaves of deep steamed sencha are even smaller. It is difficult to drink and drink as it is.
(ハ)の蓋付茶碗を使用して飲む方法は、高級玉露や中国茶に見られる飲茶法であるが、この方法が可能な理由は1枚の茶葉が比較的大きい為、茶碗の蓋と縁との小さい隙間によって茶葉の通過が止められることにあるが、茶碗の蓋をずらして啜り飲む方法は日常の一般的な飲み方ではなく、不慣れで飲み辛く時間がかかるものである。通常市販されている大半の茶葉は小さい形状に製茶されているため、この飲茶法を採用できない。 The method of drinking using a tea bowl with a lid in (c) is the dim sum method found in high-quality gyokuro and Chinese tea, but the reason this method is possible is because the tea leaves are relatively large, The passage of tea leaves is stopped by a small gap with the edge, but the method of squeezing and drinking the teacup lid is not a general way of drinking, but it is unfamiliar and time consuming. Since most tea leaves that are usually on the market are made in small shapes, this dim sum method cannot be adopted.
(ニ)の半球状あるいは類似の袋状のこし網を持つ茶漉しを使う場合、袋状のこし網は飲茶用容器の口元に掛ける構造であり、茶葉は容器の底部にまで達していないため、注入する湯や水の量が少ないと、茶葉が浸漬せず抽出させることができない。 (Ii) When using a tea strainer with a hemispherical or similar bag-shaped strainer, the bag-shaped strainer has a structure that hangs around the mouth of the container for drinking, and the tea leaves do not reach the bottom of the container. If the amount of hot water or water used is small, the tea leaves will not be immersed and cannot be extracted.
また、(ニ)の方法は、湯や水や茶葉の追加、二煎目、三煎目等の湯の注入の度に茶漉しを茶葉ごと飲茶用容器から入れたり出したりして面倒である。また、茶葉の入った茶漉しを一時的に飲茶用容器から別の場所に出して置く必要があり、周りに水滴が落ちたりして使い勝手が悪いものである。 Also, the method (d) is cumbersome because the tea strainer is put in and out of the tea-drinking container each time hot water such as hot water, water or tea leaves is added, or hot water such as second or third tea is injected. . In addition, it is necessary to temporarily place a tea strainer containing tea leaves out of a container for drinking tea and put it in a different place, and water drops fall around it, which is inconvenient.
また、(ニ)の方法は、茶漉しの柄部が、こし網の水平延長線上に付いていて、飲茶用容器の外に大きくはみ出して、場所を取り邪魔であり、見栄えの悪い物である。 In the method (d), the handle portion of the tea strainer is attached to the horizontal extension of the strainer, and it protrudes out of the container for drinking tea, obstructs the place, and is unsightly. .
さらに、(ニ)の方法は、茶殻の処理の煩雑さを大巾に解消する反面、茶葉を広がらせるための抽出空間が抽出用容器本体に比べ大巾に狭くなり、味成分の早期抽出を低下させるものである。 Furthermore, the method (d) eliminates the complexity of processing the tea husk greatly, but the extraction space for spreading the tea leaves is much narrower than the extraction container body, so that early extraction of taste components can be achieved. It is to reduce.
(ホ)の飲茶用容器内にティーバッグを投入して、湯や水を注いで抽出させて飲む方法は、紅茶に多く使われているもので、お茶を入れる作業としても、茶殻の処理にしても非常に簡便なため、一般家庭でも広く普及している。はじめ紅茶で普及したが、次第に緑茶やウーロン茶にも波及している。しかしながら、抽出して飲む茶葉(リーフタイプ)と比較して味に大きな違いがある。その大きな違いは、ティーバッグの茶葉はバッグ(袋)のなかに閉じ込められている為、抽出時の茶葉の開きが抑えられて味成分が充分抽出しないことや、湯の対流に反応できない為においしい味が出ないことにある。抽出された成分がバッグ(袋)の中に閉じ込められたまま飲茶に供せずバッグ(袋)と共に外に出されてしまうこともある。 The method of placing tea bags in (d) tea drinking containers and pouring hot water or water to extract them is a common method used for tea. However, since it is very simple, it is widely used in ordinary households. It first spread in black tea but gradually spread to green tea and oolong tea. However, there is a great difference in taste compared to tea leaves (leaf type) to be extracted and drink. The main difference is that the tea leaves of the tea bag are confined in the bag, so that the opening of the tea leaves during extraction is suppressed and the flavor components are not extracted sufficiently, and it cannot respond to the convection of hot water. There is no delicious taste. In some cases, the extracted components are confined in the bag (bag) and not taken out to the dim sum and are taken out together with the bag (bag).
また、(ホ)の方法は、抽出の効率を高め抽出時間を早めるために、使用する茶葉を細かく砕いて加工したものを使うことが多く(紅茶ではローターバンタイプやCTC製法のもの)、比較的に薄味の、こくのない味になる傾向にあり、茶葉を細かく砕いて加工する程、外的要因を受け易くなり保管をしっかりさせないと劣化の度合いが大きく日持ちが悪いものとなる。 The method of (e) often uses tea leaves that have been finely crushed and processed in order to increase the extraction efficiency and shorten the extraction time (in the case of black tea, the rotor van type or CTC manufacturing method). The tea leaves tend to have a light taste, and the more the tea leaves are crushed and processed, the more easily they are subjected to external factors, and unless they are stored well, the degree of deterioration is large and the shelf life is poor.
さらに、(ホ)の方法は、バック(袋)の材質の影響を無視できない。一般にバック(袋)の材質は木綿、濾紙やナイロンメッシュ等だが、100度近い温度に浸される為、茶の成分に何らかの影響を及ぼす可能性は強くあり、味を低下させる原因と考えられる。また、ナイロンメッシュ等は燃えないゴミの発生となり環境問題にも触れてくる一面がある。 Furthermore, the method (e) cannot ignore the influence of the back (bag) material. Generally, the material of the bag (bag) is cotton, filter paper, nylon mesh, etc., but since it is immersed at a temperature close to 100 ° C., there is a strong possibility that it will have some effect on the ingredients of the tea, which is considered to be a cause of lowering the taste. In addition, nylon mesh and the like generate non-burnable garbage, and there is one aspect that comes into contact with environmental problems.
近年、生活様式の大きな変化の中で、ペットボトル(清涼飲料水)の茶が台頭してくると共に、従来から飲用されてきた茶葉(リーフタイプ)を抽出させて飲む方法が敬遠されてきている。急須等の抽出容器の使用や、茶殻の処理等の煩雑さが敬遠され、お茶離れが進行し、急須等の抽出専用の茶器を持たない家庭も多く、その扱い方法を知らないものが多くなってきている。従って、これからの技術として、従来のお茶を入れる様々な煩わしさから解放し、簡便的においしくお茶を入れることのできる器具の開発が要請される。 In recent years, with the major changes in lifestyle, tea in bottles (soft drinks) has emerged, and methods of extracting and drinking tea leaves (leaf type) that have been drunk in the past have been avoided. . The use of extraction containers such as teapots and the complexity of tea husk processing are avoided, tea separation progresses, and many households do not have tea utensils for extraction such as teapots, and many do not know how to handle them. It is coming. Therefore, as a future technology, it is required to develop a device that can easily and deliciously put in tea, free from various troublesomeness to put in conventional tea.
また、少子化、高齢化の時代の到来と共に、一人住まいの個人が単独でお茶を入れて飲む生活を生み出している。従って、これからの技術として、これまでの、複数人のお茶を入れて団欒の中で飲茶する従来型の様式とは異なる、個人が好みに合った自前のお茶を自分流に、しかも高齢者でもやさしく簡単に入れられる器具の開発が要請される。 In addition, with the advent of the era of declining birthrate and aging, individuals living alone have created a life of drinking and drinking tea alone. Therefore, as a future technology, it is different from the conventional style of drinking tea in a group with multiple people's tea. Development of a device that can be easily and easily inserted is required.
さらに、最近の日本茶にも大きな変化が見られ、品種面ではやぶきた一辺倒から、他の品種が次第に単品で栽培製造販売されるようになってきたことや、お茶の産地表示が明確にされてきたことから、個人でも好みに合ったブレンド茶を作って楽しめる時代が到来した。従って、これからの技術として、個人が特別な装備を必要とせず低コストで、抽出状態の目視確認が容易にできて、簡便にブレンド茶作りを楽しむことのできる器具の開発が要請される。 In addition, there has been a big change in recent Japanese tea. From the side of varieties, other varieties have gradually been cultivated, manufactured and sold separately, and the tea production labeling has been clarified. As a result, the time has come for individuals to make and enjoy blended tea that suits their tastes. Therefore, as a future technology, there is a demand for development of an apparatus that allows an individual to easily make a blended tea by making it easy to visually check the extraction state without requiring special equipment and at a low cost.
本発明者は、過去に湯飲み茶碗等の飲茶用容器内に直接投入した茶葉を漉すことができる器具が存在するか否かについて調査を行った。その結果、これに類する器具として、飲茶用容器内に直接投入した茶葉を漉すことができ、急須を必要としない茶器の存在を確認した(例えば特許文献1参照。)。これは、内壁に湯や水の注ぎ量を示す明示線を描いた湯飲み茶碗を用い、茶葉を投入してから、茶漉しの網部を湯飲み茶碗の内側の所定の位置まで挿入すると共に、茶漉しの柄部を湯飲み茶碗の縁にバネで固定し、湯飲み茶碗に描かれた明示線を目安にして湯や水を注いで抽出し茶を飲むものである。
特開平9−262168号公報
This inventor investigated whether the appliance which can pour the tea leaf directly thrown into the container for drinking teas, such as a tea cup in the past, existed. As a result, as an instrument similar to this, tea leaves directly put into a tea drinking container can be poured, and the existence of a tea set that does not require a teapot was confirmed (for example, see Patent Document 1). This is done by using a tea cup with an explicit line indicating the amount of hot water or water poured on the inner wall, inserting tea leaves, inserting the tea strainer net into a predetermined position inside the tea cup, The handle is fixed to the edge of the tea cup with a spring, and tea and tea are extracted by pouring hot water and water using the clear line drawn on the tea cup as a guide.
JP-A-9-262168
前記の湯飲み茶碗の内部に茶葉を直接投入して茶を飲む方法では、内側に明示線を描いた湯飲み茶碗を特別に製作する必要があり、一般に市販されている湯飲み茶碗をそのまま使用できない。同様に茶漉しについても、先に述べた特製の湯飲み茶碗に適合する形状のものに限定され、汎用性がなくコストが高く付という欠点があった。 In the above-described method of directly injecting tea leaves into the tea cup and drinking tea, it is necessary to specially produce a tea cup with an explicit line on the inside, and a commercially available tea cup cannot be used as it is. Similarly, tea strainers are limited to shapes that are suitable for the special teacups described above, and have the disadvantage that they are not versatile and costly.
また、柄部の茶碗固定用バネを湯飲み茶碗の縁に挟み込んで茶漉しを固定しているが、1煎、2煎、3煎等の湯や水の追加投入や、茶葉の追加投入に対して、固定式の茶漉しであるため、都度の脱着が面倒であり、また、熱湯を使用している場合での脱着は困難という問題がある。 In addition, the teacup fixing spring of the handle is sandwiched between the edges of the tea cup and the teacup is fixed. Since it is a fixed tea strainer, it is troublesome to remove and remove each time, and when hot water is used, it is difficult to remove and remove.
さらに、抽出中の茶葉の状態の観察は、固定取り付けされた茶漉しの網の目を通して見ることとなって、抽出中の茶葉の開き具合や水色の状態をはっきりと目視確認できない。従って、おいしく飲むために相応しい最適条件(抽出時間)を逸してしまうという不具合がある。 Furthermore, the observation of the state of the tea leaf during extraction is through the mesh of the tea strainer fixedly attached, and the open state and light blue state of the tea leaf during extraction cannot be clearly confirmed visually. Therefore, there is a problem that the optimum condition (extraction time) suitable for drinking deliciously is lost.
さらに、茶漉しが固定して取り付けられていることや、柄の長さが短くて網を湯飲み茶碗の底まで入れることができないことにより、茶漉しの網で抽出中の茶葉を掻き混ぜてブレンド茶を作ったり、茶葉をすくい取って香りを嗅いだり、茶殻をすくって取出したりすることができない等機能が限定的である。 In addition, the tea strainer is fixed and attached, and the length of the handle is too short to allow the net to reach the bottom of the tea cup. The functions are limited, such as making fragrances, scooping tea leaves and smelling them, and scooping out tea leaves.
そこで、本発明の目的とするところは、上述の多くの問題点を解決すると共に、更に改良を加えて市場の要請に応えて開発されたもので、一般に市販され日常家庭で使用されている湯飲み茶碗等の飲茶用容器をそのまま使用して、飲茶用容器に直接投入した茶葉でも、茶葉の種類の違いに関わらず、抽出中の茶葉の状態を目視確認できておいしく入れられ、且つ個人の好みに合ったブレンド茶を簡単に作ることができ、茶漉し単体にて自由な移動と簡便な操作性を有し、使い勝手の良さと茶殻処理、洗浄、保管を容易にし、さらに、形状変更機能を付与させることにより、各種の飲茶用容器を汎用的に使えるようにした茶漉しを提供することにある。 Accordingly, the object of the present invention is to solve the above-mentioned many problems and to further improve and develop it in response to market demands. Even if the tea leaves directly put into the tea drinking container are used, the state of the tea leaves being extracted can be visually confirmed regardless of the type of tea leaves, Easy to make blended tea blends, free movement and simple operability with tea strainer alone, ease of use, easy tea husk processing, washing and storage, and a shape change function It is intended to provide a tea strainer that can be used for various types of tea drinking containers for general purposes.
上記の目的を達成するために、本発明の茶漉しは、飲茶用容器の内壁に内接する枠を有する網に於いて、網を飲茶用容器の底に置いた状態で、網の枠の所定の一部に、略垂直に少なくとも飲茶用容器の縁を越える高さで、飲茶用容器の縁を跨ぐ形状とした充分の長さの柄部を設ける。 In order to achieve the above object, the tea strainer of the present invention comprises a mesh having a frame inscribed in the inner wall of the dim sum container, and the mesh frame is placed on the bottom of the dim sum container. A part of the handle is provided with a sufficiently long handle having a shape extending across at least the edge of the dim sum container at a height substantially perpendicular to the dim sum.
また、前記茶漉しの柄部は剛性と弾性を有し、且つ塑性変形させることができる材質にすることである。 Also, the handle portion of the tea strainer is made of a material having rigidity and elasticity and capable of being plastically deformed.
さらに、前記茶漉しの柄部の先端を所定の位置にて折返したフック状に形成させることが好ましい。 Furthermore, it is preferable to form a hook shape in which the tip of the handle portion of the tea strainer is folded at a predetermined position.
以上のとおり、本発明の請求項1に記載の発明によれば、飲茶用容器に直接茶葉を投入して茶を抽出し漉すことができるので、急須等の抽出用の茶器を使用する必要がなく、お茶を入れる作業が簡単で取り扱いの煩わしさが大巾に緩和される。また、茶葉の種類の違いに関わらず、一般に市販されている飲茶用容器をそのまま使用することができるので、汎用性があり、茶器類の入手も手軽にできてコストもかからない。 As described above, according to the invention described in claim 1 of the present invention, tea leaves can be directly poured into a drinking tea container to extract and pour tea, so it is necessary to use an extraction tea set such as a teapot. In addition, the work of putting tea is easy and the troublesome handling is greatly eased. In addition, regardless of the type of tea leaves, a commercially available tea drinking container can be used as it is, so that it is versatile, and it is easy to obtain tea utensils, and it does not cost much.
また、請求項1に記載の発明によれば、茶漉しは飲茶用容器に装着したり組付けたりすることなく、単体にして常に任意に移動可能であるので、手に持って簡便な操作で、茶の抽出、漉し、掻き回し、香り嗅ぎ、ブレンド茶作り等の仕事を行うことができる。また、抽出後の茶殻の処理、洗浄、保管等が容易にできる万能茶漉しとして、忙しく煩わしさを嫌い利便性を要求する現代人に応えられる。 Further, according to the invention described in claim 1, the tea strainer can be arbitrarily moved as a single unit without being attached or assembled to the dim sum container, so that it can be easily held by hand. Can perform tasks such as tea extraction, brewing, stirring, smelling and blending tea. Moreover, as a versatile tea strainer that can easily treat, wash, and store tea leaves after extraction, it can respond to modern people who are busy and dislike the annoyance and demand convenience.

本発明の実施形態に係る茶漉しについて図面を参照して説明する。図1は茶漉しの斜視図である。図2は図1の側面図である。塑性変形した状態を二点鎖線で示す。図3は図2のA−A線断面図である。 A tea strainer according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a tea strainer. FIG. 2 is a side view of FIG. The state of plastic deformation is indicated by a two-dot chain line. 3 is a cross-sectional view taken along line AA in FIG.
飲茶用容器4の内壁に内接する大きさの円環の枠2の下面全体に、枠2の外径の円形にした網1を張りつけ、当該網1を飲茶用容器4の底に置いた状態で、枠2の任意の所定位置に円周方向に巾を持たせて2本の線材を平行にして、柄付け根部3aから略垂直に飲茶用容器4の内壁に沿って上端縁を越える高さで飲茶用容器4の縁を跨ぎ、網1の面と同程度の位置までの長さで逆U文字形に柄部3を形成した茶漉しである。そして、柄部3の立上がりから折返す逆U文字形の間隔は少なくとも飲茶用容器4の壁の厚さを超え、且つ外壁面に極力近付けた距離の寸法にすることが最も好ましい。 A state in which a net 1 having a circular outer diameter of the frame 2 is attached to the entire lower surface of an annular frame 2 inscribed in the inner wall of the dim sum container 4 and the net 1 is placed on the bottom of the dim sum container 4 Then, a width that extends in the circumferential direction at an arbitrary predetermined position of the frame 2 so that the two wire rods are parallel to each other, and is substantially perpendicular to the upper end edge along the inner wall of the dim sum container 4 from the handle root 3a. The tea strainer has a pattern portion 3 formed in an inverted U-character shape with a length up to the same level as the surface of the net 1 across the edge of the dim sum container 4. And it is the most preferable that the distance between the inverted U-letters turned back from the rising of the handle part 3 exceeds the wall thickness of the dim sum container 4 and is as close as possible to the outer wall surface.
こうした場合に於いては、飲茶用容器4に茶漉しが最も安定して設置され、飲茶用容器4の傾斜や動きに対して移動したり外れたりすることがなく、茶葉5を適切に押さえることができ、且つ飲茶用容器4を外壁から保持する場合に茶漉しも同時に違和感なく自然に押さえて保持することができる。 In such a case, the tea strainer is most stably installed in the dim sum container 4 so that it does not move or disengage with respect to the tilt or movement of the dim sum container 4, and the tea leaves 5 are appropriately pressed. In addition, when holding the tea / drinking tea container 4 from the outer wall, the tea strainer can be naturally pressed and held without any sense of incongruity.
そして、部材を剛性と弾性を有し、且つ塑性変形ができる材質であるステンレスの線材にて作成することである。 The member is made of a stainless steel wire that is rigid and elastic and can be plastically deformed.
こうした場合に於いては、柄部3を各種の飲茶用容器4に応じて、種々の形状の周壁にしっくりと馴染ませることができ、また個々の使用者の手の大きさや持ち方の好みに対応させることができる。また、茶漉しの柄部3を飲茶用容器4の縁に掛けたまま茶漉しの網1で茶を漉しながら飲み進み、飲茶用容器4の傾斜が増した場合、指で柄部3を飲茶用容器4の外壁の間に挟んで保持する。また、図2の二点鎖線で示すように、柄部3の折曲がり箇所を人力にて強い力を加え塑性変形させて折曲がり角度を変更し、指で柄部3を押さえなくても飲茶できるようにバランス調整することができる。 In such a case, the handle 3 can be adapted to various shapes of the peripheral wall according to the various dim sum containers 4, and to suit the size of the user's hand and how to hold it. Can be matched. In addition, when the tea pot strainer 3 is hung on the edge of the dim sum container 4 and tea is poured with the tea strainer net 1 and the tilt of the dim sum container 4 increases, the handle portion 3 can be dimly chased with fingers. The container 4 is held between the outer walls of the container 4. In addition, as shown by the two-dot chain line in FIG. 2, the bending portion of the handle portion 3 is plastically deformed by applying strong force to change the bending angle, and the dim sum can be changed without pressing the handle portion 3 with a finger. The balance can be adjusted as possible.
また、前記柄部3の先端を更に延長して、網1の同程度の位置にて折返したフック状に成形して、最終屈曲部である柄曲がり部D(3d)が飲茶用容器4の縁を跨いで止まる5mmから10mm程の柄折返し部3eを付けておく。 Further, the tip of the handle 3 is further extended and formed into a hook shape that is folded back at the same position of the net 1, and the bent portion D (3 d) that is the final bent portion of the container 4 for drinking tea 4 A pattern turning portion 3e of about 5 mm to 10 mm that stops over the edge is attached.
こうした場合に於いては、茶葉5を湯や水の中で充分広げて抽出させるために、一時的に茶漉しを持上げて飲茶用容器4の縁に枠2の前半部を掛けると共に、柄部3の折返したフック状である柄曲がり部D(3d)が飲茶用容器4の反対側の縁を跨いで乗り、茶漉しを飲茶用容器4の縁上に容易に保持させることができる。 In such a case, in order to sufficiently spread and extract the tea leaves 5 in hot water or water, temporarily lift the tea strainer and hang the first half of the frame 2 on the edge of the container 4 for drinking tea, The bent portion D (3d), which is a folded hook shape 3, rides over the opposite edge of the dim sum container 4, and the tea strainer can be easily held on the edge of the dim sum container 4.
飲茶用容器4を、一般家庭で使用する飲み口部外形78mm、深さ54mmの普通煎茶用180CC入り湯飲み茶碗(飲茶用容器4)を基準として使用した場合、使い勝手の良い茶漉しとしての具体的な実施例は、太さ約1.5mmのステンレスの線材一本にて形成し、茶漉しの網1の外周部である枠2の外径が65mm(飲茶用容器が底つぼみになっている場合は60mm)の円環と円環突合せの柄付け根部3aから柄部3をほぼ垂直に折り曲げ、柄付け根部3aから柄曲がり部B(3b)までの長さが60mm程度とし、柄曲がり部B(3b)を頂点として間隔10mm程度の巾を成す逆U文字形に折り曲げ、柄曲がり部B(3b)から柄曲がり部C(3c)までの長さを、柄付け根部3aから柄曲がり部B(3b)までの長さとほぼ同じ60mm前後とし、柄部3の先端部を折返したフック状に折り曲げ、先端を折返して並列、平行に柄付け根部3aまで延長して柄付け根部3aで固定する。そして、枠2の外径に合わせた網1を接合する。この場合、柄曲がり部C(3c)から柄曲がり部D(3d)の長さと、柄曲がり部D(3d)から先端の柄折返し部3eまでの長さを5mm〜10mmの範囲の寸法とする。 When the drinking tea container 4 is used on the basis of a 180cc cup tea cup (drinking tea container 4) for ordinary sencha with a drinking mouth outer shape of 78 mm and a depth of 54 mm, which is used in a general home, it is concrete as a tea strainer that is easy to use. In the embodiment, the outer diameter of the frame 2 which is the outer peripheral portion of the tea strainer net 1 is 65 mm (when the container for drinking tea is a bottom bud). Is 60 mm), and the handle 3 is bent almost vertically from the handle base 3a of the ring and the buttocks, and the length from the handle base 3a to the handle bend B (3b) is about 60 mm, and the handle bend B Folded into an inverted U-character shape having a width of about 10 mm with (3b) as the apex, the length from the pattern bending portion B (3b) to the pattern bending portion C (3c), and the pattern bending portion B to the pattern bending portion B Almost the same length as (3b) And longitudinal 60 mm, bent in a hook shape with folded tip of the handle portion 3, parallel folded tip, is fixed by the handle base portion 3a parallel to extend to the handle base portion 3a. And the net | network 1 matched with the outer diameter of the frame 2 is joined. In this case, the length from the pattern bending portion C (3c) to the pattern bending portion D (3d) and the length from the pattern bending portion D (3d) to the tip pattern turning portion 3e are in the range of 5 mm to 10 mm. .
本発明の茶漉しは以上のように構成されていて、代表の実施例1における使用の方法について図面を参照して説明する。図4は本発明の抽出前の収納、保管状態を示し、図5は抽出中の状態を示し、図6は飲茶前の状態を示す。また、図7は柄部を手で押えて飲茶をする際の使用状態と動作を示し、図8は柄部を手で押えないで飲茶をする際の使用状態と動作を示し、図9は抽出した茶を別の茶器に注ぐ際の使用状態と動作を示し、図10は抽出中の茶葉をすくい上げて香りを嗅ぐ際の使用状態と動作を示し、図11は飲茶後に茶殻(茶葉)をすくい出す際の使用状態と動作を示し、図12は飲茶後に茶殻(茶葉)をすくい取る際の使用状態を示し、図13は浮いた茶葉を掻き回し沈める際の使用状態と動作を示し、図14は数種類の茶葉を掻き混ぜてブレンド茶を作る際の使用状態と動作を示す。 The tea strainer of the present invention is configured as described above, and the method of use in the representative embodiment 1 will be described with reference to the drawings.

図4で示す収納、保管状態の飲茶用容器4の縁に予め掛けてあった茶漉しを取上げ、飲茶用容器4に茶葉5(普通煎茶)約2グラムを投入し、ポットから湯を注いだのち、図5で示すように、茶漉しを飲茶用容器4の両縁の上に橋渡しに乗せ掛けて、およそ1分間(茶葉によって違う)そのままの状態で茶葉5を抽出させる。これは、茶葉5の開きを促すために抽出空間をできる限り広めて、茶の味成分を速やかに抽出させるためであると同時に、網1や枠2を飲茶用容器4の中から昇ってくる湯気(熱気)に当てて予熱するためである。しかも、網1の金気(金属質の影響)をお茶の味に及ぼさないように、抽出中の茶と接触する時間を少なくすることでもあり、更には抽出時に茶漉しをテーブル上に置いたりしないでよいので、衛生的であり且つテーブル上の場所も取らない等の利点がある。抽出中は茶葉5の開き加減を見る等の抽出状態を目視確認しつつ最適な状態になるところを見計らって飲茶に移る。 The tea strainer previously hung on the edge of the storage and storage container 4 shown in FIG. 4 was taken up, about 2 grams of tea leaves 5 (ordinary sencha) were poured into the container 4 and hot water was poured from the pot. After that, as shown in FIG. 5, tea strainers are placed on the bridges on both edges of the dim sum container 4 to extract the tea leaves 5 as they are for about 1 minute (depending on the tea leaves). This is to widen the extraction space as much as possible in order to promote the opening of the tea leaves 5 and to quickly extract the taste components of tea, and at the same time, the net 1 and the frame 2 rise from the drinking tea container 4. This is because it preheats against steam (hot air). In addition, the time to contact with the tea during extraction is reduced so as not to affect the taste of the net 1 (the influence of metallic properties) on the taste of tea. There is an advantage that it is hygienic and does not take up a place on the table. During extraction, the extraction state of the tea leaves 5 is checked and the extraction state is visually confirmed, and the place where the optimum state is reached is determined to move to dim sum.
前記に於いて、お茶を飲む時期が冬季で室温が低い場合は、用意した飲茶用容器4も冷たくなっているので、湯を飲茶用容器4に注いだ途端に湯温が大きく下がって味を落としてしまう。これを回避する為に、飲茶用容器4に茶葉5を投入する前にポットの湯を注いで飲茶用容器4を温めてから、いったんその湯を捨てた後で茶葉5を投入する方法をとると好ましい。 In the above, when the time of drinking tea is winter and the room temperature is low, the prepared dim sum container 4 is also cold, and as soon as hot water is poured into the dim sum container 4, the hot water temperature falls greatly and tastes. Will drop. In order to avoid this, a method of pouring hot water in a pot before pouring tea leaves 5 into the tea drinking container 4 and warming the tea drinking container 4 and then throwing out the hot water and then pouring the tea leaves 5 is used. And preferred.
また、ポットより直接注ぐ湯は高温であるため、茶葉の種類や摘採時期、製茶方法等の違いによって湯の温度を調整して(下げて)おいしい味を引き出す必要がある。湯温を下げるには、別の湯冷まし等の茶器にポットの高温の湯を注ぎ、暫く冷まして後飲茶用容器4に注湯する方法があるが、別に湯冷まし用の茶器が必要となるため不便である。ここでは、用意した飲茶用容器4にポットの湯を注ぎ、湯温を確認しながら湯冷ましさせて、適温になった頃合に茶葉5を投入する。この時、茶葉5が浮いてしまう場合があるので、図13で示すように、茶漉しを取上げ網1で浮いている茶葉5を掻き混ぜるようにして沈めると良い。 In addition, since hot water poured directly from the pot is hot, it is necessary to adjust the temperature of the hot water according to differences in the type of tea leaves, harvesting time, tea making method, etc. to bring out a delicious taste. In order to lower the hot water temperature, there is a method of pouring hot water from the pot into another tea chiller, etc., cooling it for a while, and then pouring it into the container 4 for drinking tea, but it is inconvenient because a separate tea chiller is required. It is. Here, the hot water from the pot is poured into the prepared tea drinking container 4, the hot water is cooled while checking the hot water temperature, and the tea leaves 5 are introduced when the temperature reaches an appropriate temperature. At this time, the tea leaves 5 may float. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 13, it is preferable that the tea leaves 5 are picked up and the tea leaves 5 floating on the net 1 are stirred and submerged.
抽出より飲茶に移る際は、飲茶用容器4の縁の上に橋渡して乗せ掛けてある茶漉しを取上げ、茶漉しの網1を飲茶用容器4の中に投入し沈ませながら、柄部3を飲茶用容器4の縁に跨いで掛ける。沈んだ茶漉しの網1は図6で示すように、ほぼ水平を保った状態で茶葉5の上に乗る。次に、飲茶用容器4を茶漉しの掛かっていない側を飲み口にして取上げ茶を飲む。この時、茶葉5は茶漉しの網1にて堰き止められて、口元に近づくことはない。 When moving from extraction to dim sum, pick up the tea strainer that is bridged over the edge of the dim sum container 4 and put the net 1 of the tea strainer into the dim sum container 4 to sink it. Is hung across the edge of the dim sum container 4. As shown in FIG. 6, the sinked tea strainer net 1 rides on the tea leaves 5 in a state of being kept almost horizontal. Next, the tea drinking container 4 is taken with the side on which the tea strainer is not applied as a drinking mouth, and tea is taken up. At this time, the tea leaves 5 are blocked by the tea strainer net 1 and do not approach the mouth.
前記の茶漉しを飲茶用容器4の縁に掛けた際、使用する飲茶用容器4が普通より浅い場合は、網1が先に飲茶用容器4の中にある茶葉5の上に達して、柄曲がり部B(3b)の位置は飲茶用容器4の縁に当らないで上部に浮いた状態となり、逆に、使用する飲茶用容器4が普通より深い場合は、柄曲がり部B(3b)の位置が先に飲茶用容器4の縁に当たって、網1が飲茶用容器4の中の中位にぶら下がったような状態になるが、どちらも茶漉しの役目を果たすのでそのまま使用すればさしつかえない。 When the tea strainer is hung on the edge of the container 4 for drinking tea, if the container 4 for drinking tea used is shallower than usual, the net 1 reaches the top of the tea leaf 5 in the container 4 for drinking tea first, The position of the pattern bending portion B (3b) is not in contact with the edge of the dim sum container 4, but is floated on the upper part. Conversely, when the container 4 for drinking tea used is deeper than usual, the pattern bending portion B (3b) The position of 1 hits the edge of the dim sum container 4 first, and the net 1 is hung in the middle of the dim sum container 4, but both serve as tea strainers and can be used as they are. .
さらに続けて、茶を飲むに従って、飲茶用容器4の傾斜角度が大きくなっていくが、傾斜角度が80度近くに達するまでは、茶漉しの柄部3は外れ落ちることはなく、また、網1および枠2も自重で沈んだままの位置を保っている。しかし、最後の飲みきり段階に入ると傾斜角度は80度以上になり、茶漉しの柄部3が飲む人の顔に向かって倒れてくる場合があるので、図7で示すように、柄部3を、予め飲茶用容器4を持っている指先で、飲茶用容器4の外壁に挟むように押さえて防ぐ。茶漉しの柄部3を押える手つきは、片手で飲茶する場合でも、両手で飲茶する場合でも、左右どちらの手でも容易にできる。この時、茶漉しの先端部の柄折返し部3eは親指を除く4指のどの間にも抵抗感なく挟むことができる。 Further, as the tea is drunk, the tilt angle of the tea drinking container 4 increases. However, the handle 3 of the tea strainer does not fall off until the tilt angle reaches nearly 80 degrees, and the net 1 and the frame 2 are also kept in their positions under their own weight. However, when entering the final drinking stage, the inclination angle becomes 80 degrees or more, and the handle part 3 of the tea strainer may fall toward the face of the drinker, so as shown in FIG. 3 is prevented by holding it in front of the outer wall of the drinking tea container 4 with a fingertip that has the drinking tea container 4 in advance. The hand holding the handle portion 3 of the tea strainer can be easily performed with either the left hand or the right hand when drinking with one hand or drinking with both hands. At this time, the handle turning portion 3e at the tip of the tea strainer can be sandwiched between any of the four fingers except the thumb without any sense of resistance.
但し、図2の二点鎖線で示すように、茶漉しの柄部3の柄付け根部3a、柄曲がり部B(3b)に人力等にて強い力を加えて塑性変形させ形を飲茶用容器に馴染ませることによって、図8で示すように、指先で柄部3を押えなくても茶漉しが外れて落ちないようにすることができる。 However, as shown by the two-dot chain line in FIG. 2, a strong force is applied to the handle base portion 3a and the handle bent portion B (3b) of the handle portion 3 of the tea strainer and plastically deformed to form the shape. As shown in FIG. 8, it is possible to prevent the tea strainer from coming off and falling without having to press the handle 3 with a fingertip.
また、始めての飲茶用容器を使用する場合、あるいは飲茶用容器を変えた時は、使用する各々の飲茶用容器の断面形状が違うため、茶漉しの網1が使用する飲茶用容器4の中で最適な状態で上下するよう柄部3を塑性変形させて調整を必要とする。その調整方法は、図2の二点鎖線で示すように、茶漉しの柄部3の柄付け根部3a、柄曲がり部B(3b)に人力等にて強い力を加えて塑性変形させ、枠2の柄の付いていない側が、飲茶用容器4の内壁面に内接し滑りながら上下する位置まで折り曲げ度合いを変更し、飲茶の際、飲み口側になる茶漉しの網1と飲茶用容器4の壁面との隙間が最小限になるよう調整して、微細なものを除く茶葉5が飲茶用容器4の内壁と枠2の外周との隙間から通り抜けないようにする。なお、茶漉しの飲茶用容器4の縁に掛ける位置は、飲み口に対してどの位置でも良いので、掛ける位置を変更することによって隙間を小さく取ることもできるが、飲茶用容器4の大きさや形状が大きく異なるものについては、枠2の外径が使用する飲茶用容器4に内接する茶漉しに切替える必要がある。但し、茶葉5の形状が大きくなるほど、飲茶用容器4の内径と枠2の外径との寸法差の許容値は大きくなり微調整は不要となる。 In addition, when the first dim sum is used, or when the dim sum is changed, the cross-sectional shape of each dim sum is different, so that the inside of the dim sum 4 used by the tea strainer net 1 Therefore, adjustment is required by plastically deforming the handle 3 so as to move up and down in an optimum state. As shown by the two-dot chain line in FIG. 2, the adjustment method is to apply a strong force to the handle base 3 a and the handle bent portion B (3 b) of the tea strainer handle 3 by plastic force, The side where the handle 2 is not attached is inscribed in the inner wall surface of the dim sum container 4 and changes the bending degree to a position where it rises and falls while sliding. The tea leaves 5 except for fine ones are adjusted so that the gap between the wall and the outer wall of the tea drink container 4 does not pass through the gap between the inner wall of the drinking tea container 4 and the outer periphery of the frame 2. In addition, since the position hung on the edge of the tea-drinking tea drinking container 4 may be any position with respect to the drinking mouth, the gap can be made small by changing the hanging position. For those having greatly different shapes, it is necessary to switch to tea strainers inscribed in the dim sum container 4 used by the outer diameter of the frame 2. However, as the shape of the tea leaves 5 increases, the allowable value of the dimensional difference between the inner diameter of the tea drinking container 4 and the outer diameter of the frame 2 increases, and fine adjustment becomes unnecessary.
さらに、味の調整のための茶葉の追加投入や、ニ煎目、三煎目の湯の注入等は、茶漉しを片手で持ち上げたままで行うことも、また、飲茶用容器4の両縁の上に橋渡して乗せ掛けてから行うことも可能で手早く簡単にできる。 In addition, the addition of tea leaves to adjust the taste and the injection of the second and third decoctions can be carried out with the tea strainer lifted with one hand. It is possible to do it after it is bridged and placed on top.
さらに、茶漉しは図9で示すように、飲茶用容器4を急須等の抽出用茶器として利用することができる。抽出してから直ぐに飲まない場合は茶の濃度が増して味がまずくなるので、それを避けるため、抽出した茶を別の任意の容器に注いで置く。飲み手が複数人いた場合は別の茶器に小分けすることもできる。 Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 9, the tea strainer can use the tea drinking container 4 as an extraction tea device such as a teapot. If you do not drink immediately after extraction, the tea concentration will increase and the taste will be worse. To avoid this, pour the extracted tea into another container. If there are multiple drinkers, they can be subdivided into separate tea sets.
さらに、図10で示すように、香りを茶漉しの網1で抽出中の茶葉5をすくって鼻に近づけて嗅ぎ微妙な違いを観察したりすることもできる。 Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 10, the tea leaves 5 being extracted with the tea strainer net 1 can be scooped close to the nose and sniffed to observe subtle differences.
さらに、飲茶が済み、茶殻6(茶葉5)を処理する際は、図11で示すように、茶漉しの網1ですくい出し茶殻入れ(生ゴミ)トレーに捨てる。1、2回の作業でおおかたの茶殻6(茶葉5)をすくい出すことができる。この時、茶殻6(茶葉5)を飲茶用容器4の側面に押し付けるように力を加えるか、一呼吸間を置いてすくい出すと、茶殻6(茶葉5)の水分をある程度除くことができて生ゴミ処理の一助となる。また、飲茶用容器4の洗い上げの際は、図12で示すように、流し水を茶漉しの網1を通過させることにより、残った茶殻6(茶葉5)をすくい取る。 Furthermore, when the dim sum is finished and the tea leaves 6 (tea leaves 5) are processed, as shown in FIG. 11, they are scooped with a tea strainer net 1 and discarded in a tea container (raw garbage) tray. It is possible to scoop out most tea leaves 6 (tea leaves 5) in one or two operations. At this time, if you apply force to press the tea shell 6 (tea leaf 5) against the side of the drinking tea container 4 or scoop it out after a breath, you can remove some water from the tea shell 6 (tea leaf 5). Helps with garbage disposal. Further, when the drinking tea container 4 is washed, as shown in FIG. 12, the remaining tea husk 6 (tea leaves 5) is scooped by passing running water through the net 1 of tea strainer.
さらに、好みの味のブレンド茶を作るには、数種類の茶葉5を適量飲茶用容器4内に順次投入し、図14で示すように、茶漉しの網1を使って投入した茶葉を掻き混ぜてブレンド茶を作る。湯を注いでブレンド茶を抽出しつつ、抽出中の茶葉5の開く様子、水色等を目視観察しながら、茶葉の追加投入などによって好みの味を引き出す。 Furthermore, in order to make a blended tea of the desired taste, several kinds of tea leaves 5 are sequentially put into the tea drinking container 4 and the tea leaves put in using the tea strainer net 1 are stirred as shown in FIG. Make a blended tea. While pouring hot water and extracting blended tea, the taste of the tea leaves 5 during extraction, the appearance of the tea leaves 5 being opened, the light blue, etc. are visually observed, and the desired taste is brought out by adding additional tea leaves.
茶漉し使用後は、図4で示すように、網1を飲茶用容器4の中に入れ、柄部3を飲茶用容器4の縁に掛けておく。柄部3が飲茶用容器4より10mm程度外にはみ出るが、場所をとらず他の邪魔になることはなく、茶漉しと飲茶用容器4をセットにして保管しておく。 After using the tea strainer, as shown in FIG. 4, the net 1 is placed in the dim sum container 4 and the handle 3 is hung on the edge of the dim sum container 4. The handle portion 3 protrudes about 10 mm beyond the drinking tea container 4, but does not take up space and disturbs other things. The tea strainer and the drinking tea container 4 are stored as a set.
