Sieve nor Cheese Cloth??

It depends what you mean by cheese cloth. There is a lot of this type of cloth, which to me is coarser than the cheesecloth back home. It is used for making tofu. I assume that this might be what you have tried, if you have tried in China.

If you have not tried tofu cloth, you will see them sold in most wet markets, in 25-30cm squares. In our market there is a woman who just wanders around on her bicycle and only sells these cloths. They are off white in color.
The problem you will have is that any cloth that is close woven enough to stop finely ground seasonings will be slow. You can speed things up by twisting the cloth until your solids are encased in a ball and keep twisting, or you can grind your seasoning more coarsely.

If you don't like standing around holding the stuff, you can always put the cloth into a sieve, pour in the liquor and walk away, and come back later.

Coffee filters - either the paper or metal versions. Or tea/coffee presses - I think they're colloquially known as French Presses...
