Display and measure leaves with ease in this elegant and sleek tea lotus. Made of creamy, bright white ceramic, the color and outline of dry leaves is appreciable. Its simple but effective design, in the form of a folded petal, allows filling at the larger end and funnelling into a waiting gaiwan or teapot at the narrower one. Likewise, the partially-enclosed volume directs aroma toward an inquisitive nose, a valuable portion of the practice of brewing high-quality tea, while the sloping sides make for an ergonomic handhold. A key accessory for every gongfu cha table.
