About Porcelain Pouring Pitcher:
A classic sharing pitcher for use with Gongfu style brewing. This Gongfu tea pitcher is made of white porcelain with a gold-painted rim and accents.
The Gongfu style of brewing is native to Fujian province, China and Taiwan. The style encompasses several tea utensils, including a small teapot (usually around 3 to 6 ounces, though some may be larger), and is typically used to brew Oolong or Puer teas. The essence of the Gongfu style is to enjoy tea in a ceremonial setting that highlights the tea preparer’s hospitality. The tea is prepared in small brewing rounds and is poured into a small pitcher, then into individual cups. The process is very engaging and exudes ‘Cha Tao’ – a term used to describe tea spirit.
