Gong Dao Bei or fairness jug, is an essential part of gong fu tea preparing that serves to control the strength of the brew. After brewing the tea for a certain amount of time either in a very small teapot such as Yixing/Chaozhou teapot or in a Gaiwan, the tea liquor should be decanted completely into a Gong Dao Bei and from there into smaller tasting cups. Such a method ensures that the tea leaves do not continue to steep between each pour and also allow all participants to drink exactly the same tea.
The drawing of each cup is different, so when you receive the cup, it will look different to the ones showing in the picture.
The cup is designed to be used in conjunction with the small teapot or a Gaiwan. It can be paired with the Porcelain Gaiwan (apricot flowers)n and Porcelain Teacup (apricot flowers).
Capacity: 200ml (to rim)
