The traditional Chinese tea set features a unique celadon crackle glaze created with the help of craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the clay. If you continue to drink tea of the same type from the same teaware, the brew will reveal more hues of flavor in the course of time. A flat round-shaped tea pot (160 ml) has a tight-fitting lid that preserves the heat of the tea and short wide spout that enables quick decanting and prevents the over-brewing. A roundish tea pitcher or cha hai (130 ml) serves to hold the infusion that was steeped in the teapot before pouring into the cups. This step ensures that every guest will get the beverage of the same aroma and strength. A deep and wide tea strainer with the silk net catches debris of the tea leaves after brewing in the teapot. When not used the strainer is stored in the drip cup. 6 tea bowls (50 ml each) have thick walls retaining the heat of the infusion and stable square foots.
