GONGFU TEA CEREMONY
The traditional Chinese gongfu tea ceremony—literally translated to 'making tea with skill'—is characterised by smaller brewing vessels and a higher leaf-to-water ratio than found in Western-style brewing.
Popular among those looking to maximise their appreciation of finer tea selections, the ritual and presentation of the gongfu tea ceremony involves shorter steeping durations with smaller brews, allowing the tea to be enjoyed before it cools.
With a 180ml brewing capacity, the Yixing-style clay Chinese Teapot is the centrepiece of such a tea ceremony.
Yixing-style zisha clay teapot; intended primarily for puer, black and oolong teas.
Characteristic ability to absorb trace amounts of flavours with each brewing, and can influence the flavours and colours of future brews; as such, cleaning with soap is not recommended, and some connoisseurs will dedicate a Yixing teapot to brewing only one type of tea so that each subsequent brew will be optimally enhanced.
Designed to rest atop the Fairness Glass Jug with stability.
Spherical shape for enhanced circulation.

USE & CARE
Loveramics porcelain is rather strong, thanks to its high density and high-temperature kiln firing process. As such, it is quite resistant to chipping but should still be handled with care.
Dishwasher and microwave safe; though hand washing with fresh water and air drying is recommended.
