Porcelain Cha He (Tea Holder)
A Cha He is otherwise known as a 'tea box' — a vessel for tea introduction. According to the Chinese tea ceremony tradition, we first look at the tea in the cha he and then 'deep face' into it. We inhale, exhale, and inhale once more, deeply through the nose. It allows for the ceremony participants to evaluate the tea that they will be drinking. Take note of the aroma of the tea leaves and gently 'wake up' the tea by warming it with the breath.
This porcelain Cha He has a thin and graceful shape. It sits very comfortably in the hands of the tea connoisseur, allowing for proper tea introduction.
