Gong fu cha literally translates as "right effort tea." These tools thus allow you to get the best tasting tea - in easy to use and travel form. Each 11 piece set comes with six ceramic cups, a small gaiwan, tea serving cup, small metal tongs and strainer, and a tea towel in a compact travel case with hand loop.
The traditional method of using the set is to first clean and warm the cups, gaiwan and serving cup. By heating up these items, the tea will stay warmer longer than in a cold cup. Next, measure and brew tea in the gaiwan. The lid will help keep the heat during steeping, as well as acting as a flood gate to help hold back the tea when straining the tea into the server with the strainer on top. A great cup of tea can now be shared with friends and family alike!
Wash with warm water. Remove stains with small amount of baking soda and warm water. Rinse thoroughly.
