Our Chinese Tea Set in Detail
If you are really serious about your tea, then you will love our Chinese Tea Set. The set consists of nine carefully crafted items. At the center is the Gaiwan, or lidded cup. This is where you steep your tea. After steeping, you will need the sieve to keep your tea clear from any parts of the leaves. Second, you need the small pitcher, or Gong Dao Bei in Chinese, meaning “Justice Cup”. Put the sieve on top of the pitcher and pour the tea from the cup through a small gap between cup and lid into the pitcher. Then, take the pitcher and pour the tea into the cups. Now you can enjoy your tea!
Because the leaves are not steeping all the time, you can make several infusions with one portion of tea.

The Chinese Tea Set, as the name suggests, is made for Chinese tea. We recommend it for our classic kinds of tea. Green Tea, however, is more often enjoyed in a mug. For our traditional Chinese herbal teas we rather recommend our teapot or a teacup.
