Iruy Kli Sheni

Iruy Kli Sheni
Day: Sunday
Date: June 29, 2014
Parshat: Balak
Yalkut Yosef: 318

Raw eggs and tea leaves are both called "kalei habishul," things that cook easily. Therefore these two things specifically may not be put in a kli sheni that is above yad soledet bo since they will be cooked. However, it is permissible to pour from a kli sheni directly onto one of these kalei habishul even if it is above yad soledet bo. For example, one may pour hot water from a kli sheni onto tea leaves even if the water in the kli sheni is very hot. This is called iruy kli sheni. One may put mint leaves in a hot cup of tea on Shabbat that is a kli sheni. Obviously the mint leaves must be washed very well to ensure that there are no bugs. One may wrap the mint leaves in a cloth or put a cloth over the cup and drink through it to ensure that no bugs come out.
