The traditional Gongfu Tea Tray, Cha Pan (茶盘), is an integral part of the Chinese Tea Ceremony. It is built to collect water and tea that gets spilled during washing, steeping, and pouring. Its elegant, graceful form helps create an enchanting atmosphere, reminds us of harmony and beauty, and brings us closer to understanding the philosophy of tea.
This state-of-the-art tea table is hand carved from pine wood and is the true embodiment of the Gong Fu tea ceremony in all senses. Watch water and tea elegantly trickle down the branches and into the trunk, feeding it water for the tree to grow bigger.
Serhiy is a Ukrainian woodwork master. Ukraine is known for its woodwork craftsmanship, and it is also where the eastern tea tradition planted its roots in the early 90s and since grown big and strong.
Many years ago, in his small garage, a youngster captivated by the beauty and philosophy of Gong Fu Cha, Serhiy started making tea trays and other wooden tea accessories. His hobby quickly grew into a full-time occupation. Soon, it brought him to the "International Tea Expo" in South Korea, where he got introduced to other tea and woodwork masters from around the world from whom he eagerly learned.
Even today, being an acclaimed wood craftsman, Serhiy never stops learning and honing his craftsmanship. His love for nature, wood, tea, and beauty is well reflected in his work. "Tree of Life" is one of his signature pieces, and we are proud to be able to present it to you.
This tea tray is perfect for solo tea sippings and bigger groups of tea enthusiasts.
