The traditional Chinese tea set features a unique celadon crackle glaze that was created with the help of so called 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 tall tea pot (210 ml) stands on three legs and has a narrow spout that evens the consistency of the brew. The convenient handle provides a secure grip. 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 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) retain the heat of the infusion. Slightly everted rims guarantee that drinkers won’t scald their lips and fingers.
