Cha Hai (Gong Dao Bei)


In the world of Gong Fu Cha, the tea ritual holds a special place, where each element of teaware plays a crucial role in enhancing the tea experience. Among these essential tools is Cha Hai, also known as the Gong Dao Bei or the "sea of tea", "bowl of impartiality", or "fairness cup".

The Cha Hai serves a fundamental purpose in the Gong Fu Cha practice, providing control over the strength of the brew. Once the tea has been steeped for the appropriate duration, whether in a Yixing Teapot or a Gaiwan, it is gently poured into Cha Hai before being distributed into individual cups. This thoughtful decanting process ensures that tea leaves are not left to oversteep between each pour, guaranteeing a consistent and balanced infusion with each serving.

The Cha Hai or Gong Dao Bei, aptly named the "Bowl of Impartiality," embraces the spirit of fairness and equality among participants. Decanting tea into Cha Hai allows for an even distribution of the brew, ensuring that each individual enjoys the same flavors and characteristics of the tea. This practice fosters a sense of unity and harmony as tea enthusiasts come together to share in the pleasure of Gong Fu Cha.

Crafted from glass, this Cha Hai exemplifies both functionality and aesthetic appeal. Its design is often elegant and refined, featuring a wide body and a graceful spout that facilitates smooth pouring. The size of the Cha Hai can allow for plenty of tea, depending on the number of participants and the desired tea-to-water ratio, allowing for customization based on individual preferences.

As the tea gracefully fills the Cha Hai, it creates a captivating sight, inviting you to appreciate the beauty and artistry of this essential teaware. Each pour into the Cha Hai is a moment of anticipation as the flavors and aromas mingle, ready to be experienced in the subsequent individual cups.

The Cha Hai embodies the spirit of Gong Fu Cha, where attention to detail and precision guide the brewing process. It represents the commitment to achieving the perfect infusion, ensuring that each sip is a harmonious balance of flavors and aromas. With the Cha Hai as your trusted companion in the Gong Fu Cha journey, you can savor the essence of fairness and shared enjoyment that this timeless tea ritual brings.
