The Harmony Sharing Pitcher is crafted by the artisans at Lin's Ceramics Studio in Taiwan. This beautiful celadon decanter is perfect for practicing Gongfu Cha style tea service. The Chinese term Gongfu is difficult to translate, but alludes to the art of doing something with intention, deep focus, and skill. Gongfu Cha tea service involves using a gaiwan or a small porcelain or clay teapot to infuse loose leaf teas. Celadon has relatively high heat conductivity, meaning that the teapot will rather quickly relay thermal energy from the water inside. This makes celadon a natural choice for teas that require a lower brewing temperature, such as green and white teas.
Pairs well with:
Lightly oxidized oolong tea
