The Gongfu Tea Set

The process of serving tea in the Chinese Gongfu style is half ceremony, half chemistry – there’s nothing quite like it… Performed primarily for the brewing of oolong and pu-erh teas, the Gongfu method involves warming and rinsing the cups to achieve the exact temperature, pouring hot water from a height until the teapot overflows, and brewing up to ten rounds over the course of the ceremony.
Chinese tea masters train for years to perfect the process – we’ve boiled it down to a single, splendid tea set.
Our traditional Gongfu Tea Set has been crafted in the finest white porcelain with a slightly chalky finish, encircled with a sculptural string design for wonderfully tactile tea drinking. Served on a beautiful bamboo wood tray to catch any stray droplets, the tea set features a traditional Gongfu teapot, two little cups, a hot water jug and special tea container complete with a cork lid for freshness. Each item is a pure piece of ceramic craftsmanship, just the thing for a touch of tea drinking theatre.
