The set for traditional Сhinese tea ceremony is created to reveal all nuances of tea flavor and taste. All items are covered with so called crackle glaze created with the help of craquelure technique when the glaze shrinks more than the clay. A gaiwan (80 ml) fits in the hand snuglу and has a tapering shape that provides even and tidy flow of the infusion during decanting or drinking. A tea pitcher (130 ml) or a chai hai is designed to even out the strength of the infusion for providing all the drinkers with the brew of the same aroma and intensity. This tea pitcher features thick walls retaining the heat of the beverage. A wide tea strainer with the silk net filters any remains of the tea leaves. When not used the strainer is stored in the drip cup. Tea cups (50 ml) are much smaller than those used in Western tradition. The drinkers are supposed to savor their tea in 3 sips: the first - a small one, the second - a main one, the third - for after taste.
