Bamboo Tea Tongs


These long, sturdy tongs are perfect for gripping large tea leaves and lifting small gongfu cups for rinsing with hot water, as often done in a classic gongfu cha ceremony. Made of two symmetrical pieces of hand-carved bamboo joined firmly together, the large handle is knobbled for a rustic style and easy manipulation in the hands; on the other end, the tips are tapered for a precise grasp.

Pair with this Bamboo Scoop for matching tea tools; similar tongs are included in the Bamboo Gongfu Tool Set, for a complete array of gongfu cha accessories.
