The set for Chinese tea ceremony is embellished with the paintings of lotus. A roundish teapot (200 ml) features a short narrow spout for neat pouring of the brew and a large convenient handle that provides a secure grip. A lozenge shaped tea pitcher or cha hai (200 ml) with a convenient handle and oblong pinched spout serves to hold the infusion that was steeped in the teapot before serving. 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 (55 ml each) with foots retain the heat of the infusion.
