The set for Chinese tea ceremony is adorned with gold rim. A pumpkin-shaped teapot (260 ml) standing on three legs features a tight-fitting lid, an oblong spout and a large convenient handle that provides a secure grip. A pumpkin-shaped three-legged tea pitcher or cha hai (100 ml) serves to hold the infusion that was steeped in the teapot. This step ensures that every participant of the tea ceremony will get the beverage of the same temperature, aroma and strength. A deep and wide tea strainer with the silk net catches debris of the tea leaves. When not used the strainer is stored in the drip cup. Hemisphere tea cups (50 ml each) retain the heat of the infusion.
