The set for Chinese tea ceremony is embellished with the paintings of gold fish in the pond and traditional Chinese patterns. A flat сylinder teapot (300 ml) features a tight-fitting lid, an oblong wide spout that prevents over-brewing and a large convenient handle that provides a secure grip. A flat cylinder tea pitcher or cha hai (200 ml) serves to hold the infusion that was steeped in the teapot before serving. It has an oblong pinched spout for accurate pouring of the tea. 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. Half cylinder deep tea cups (70 ml each) retain the heat of the infusion and have everted rims to secure your lips and fingers from scalding.
