Jesse's Gongfu Tea Tray Set & Carrying Case
Gongfu Teamaking goes back over 1000 years, originating in Chaozhou in Guangdong Province, China.
With a little practice, this technique of making tea in a lidded cup and filtering into a pitcher not only greatly improves the quality of the tea experience, but also can 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 15-Piece Tea Set - A complete white ceramic tea set including:
1 Gaiwan (lidded cup) for brewing tea, gaiwan lid, and gaiwan saucer;
1 Ceramic filter with metal mesh, and ceramic filter-holder;
6 Tea cups, for serving many guests or for extras if you drop one!
1 Glass pitcher for holding the brewed tea;
1 Tea towel;
1 Set of wooden tongs.
The gaiwan is 120 ml in size, which is perfect for brewing for 1-4 people.
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.
