Jesse's "Lazy Gongfu" Rotating Teapot Set & Carrying Case
NOTE: This item is proudly IN STOCK and will ship within 2 business days!
Gongfu Teamaking goes back over 1000 years, originating in Chaozhou in Guangdong Province, China.
While Gongfu Tea can be done with either a lidded cup or a pot, this pot has a bit of a twist! Affixed by a handle, the pot rotates, allowing you to pour and filter the tea while keeping the leaves in the pot.
It's perfect for people who want Gongfu-style tea but prefer teapot steeping. Using a filtered pot and tea tray will improve the quality of the tea experience and can also be a surprisingly relaxing and meditative hobby.
This set contains everything you need to get started, both for making tea yourself, and for friends.
What's In The Case?
This set includes everything you need to make gongfu tea, including:
1) Tea Tray
Gongfu-style tea tray with slats that collects water and tea underneath for easy cleaning and disposal. It holds your tea equipment and gives your tea pets a place to live!
Clean and stylish, the top is made of sustainable bamboo; the bottom is made of white plastic.
2) Full 11-Piece Tea Set - A complete blue-and-white ceramic tea set including:
1 Rotating teapot with filter and handle for brewing tea, including lid;
4 Tea cups, for serving several guests;
1 Glass pitcher for holding the brewed tea;
1 Tea towel;
1 Set of wooden tongs;
1 plastic tube for tea tray draining.
3) FREE Tea Pet!
Tea pets are part of the Gongfu Tea tradition! They are small clay animals that live on the tea table and bring luck and auspiciousness. You "raise" your tea pets by pouring tea on them over the months and years.
Each set comes with a special surprise tea pet!
Bring Gongfu Tea Anywhere!
The set comes in a beautiful carrying case, which is full of foam padding so as to protect your tea equipment even when you travel.
I film lots of videos around the country making tea, and I bring this travel set with me everywhere. It fits in a backpack for longer journeys, and it has a handle for toting to a friend's house.

Final Note from Jesse:
I have spent countless hours taking steps to assure the fragile tea equipment won't break on its journey around the world to your door, but if you have any issues, send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will replace any broken parts, no questions asked!
I look after my tea friends and hope people will appreciate the difference between having a tea guy and buying on online megastores.
