The Traditional Gongfu Tea Tray, also known as Cha Pan (茶盘), holds a significant role in the Chinese Tea Ceremony, ensuring a seamless and organized tea-making process. It is carefully designed to collect any water or tea that may be spilled during the various stages of washing, steeping, and pouring, preventing any mess and allowing for a focused and enjoyable tea ritual.
Crafted with elegance and grace, the tea tray serves its practical purpose and contributes to the enchanting ambiance of the tea experience. Its presence evokes a sense of harmony and beauty, bringing tea enthusiasts closer to the essence and philosophy of tea.
Hand-carved from pine wood, this state-of-the-art Gongfu tea table embodies the true spirit of the Gong Fu tea ceremony. The craftsmanship is meticulous, evident in the elegant design where water and tea gracefully trickle down the branches and into the trunk, symbolizing the nurturing and growth of the tea tradition.
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. Serhiy pours his passion for Gong Fu Cha and woodwork craftsmanship into creating these exquisite tea trays.
Many years ago, in his small garage, captivated by the beauty and philosophy of Gong Fu Cha, Serhiy began making wooden tea accessories, and his hobby quickly evolved into a full-fledged occupation. His dedication to his craft led him to the "International Tea Expo" in South Korea, where he exchanged knowledge with other tea and woodwork masters from around the world, continuously refining his skills.
Despite gaining acclaim as a wood craftsman, Serhiy remains humble and perpetually devoted to learning and improving his artistry. His deep love for nature, wood, tea, and beauty is evident in every piece he creates, and "Tree of Life" stands as a testament to his craftsmanship. We are honored to present this signature tea tray to tea enthusiasts, encapsulating the essence of Gong Fu Cha and Serhiy's passion for his work.
The "Tree of Life" tea tray is a practical addition to your teaware collection and a statement piece that exudes charm and elegance. Whether you prefer a solitary tea sipping session or sharing the tea experience with fellow enthusiasts, this versatile tea tray caters to your needs, making each moment of your tea ritual meaningful and unforgettable.

GOD BLESS UKRAINE AND HER PEOPLE!!!
Gorgeous! Worth the wait - which actually wasn't even that long! I wanted something unique and this fit the bill perfectly!
Loved the tea tray! Nothing can compete. Most beautiful tray put there.
Proud to own this! Don’t hesitate. Why deprive yourself?! If you like it and order it, you will love it. When you order it, there is a place for special instructions that you can add for the seller; my only regret is that I wish I asked Serhiy to engrave his name on it…and in Ukrainian, right into the wood - a place of his choosing. This would be a magical gift as well.
I'd had my eye on this for a while, and I should have bought it sooner. This is without a doubt the best tea accessory I've ever purchased.
