A tea cloth or tea towel, known as "Cha Bu" (茶布), is a versatile Gong Fu Cha accessory. Put underneath your teapot or near the tea table's edge, its role is to catch and absorb accidental drips or spills, maintaining a clean and orderly tea ritual space during tea sessions. It also protects your hands when handling a hot kettle.
Its fabric effectively wicks away moisture, safeguarding the surfaces below from tea stains. The Cha Bu's deep, rustic color adds a visual warmth to your tea table setup and discreetly masks any tea stains, keeping it presentable through many uses.
Tea towel provides a dry foundation for your teapot, complementing its textural beauty with its own understated elegance. You can fold the cloth and pat the teapot bottom on it after each brew. This way, the teapot bottom stays nice and dry, preventing accidental leakage into the teacups whenever you pour tea on your guests. Simple yet sophisticated, this Cha Bu is a nod to the practical aspects of tea enjoyment.
