Cha Hai or Gong Dao Bei means 'bowl of impartiality’ or ‘sea of tea’. It's an essential component of Gong Fu that aids in controlling the strength of the brew. After brewing the tea for any given amount of time in either a gaiwan or yixing teapot, the tea should be decanted into a cha hai, from which we pour it into individual cups. This way, the tea leaves do not continue to steep between each pour. The Chinese name ‘gong dao bei’ or ‘bowl of impartiality’ refers to each participant who can enjoy the same brew.
This elegant Fluted Glass Cha Hai ensures a convenient grip in the hands of the tea master.
