Glass Teapot (150ml - Gong Fu)
This apprentice teapot is ideal for someone just starting out on their exploration of loose leaf teas using the Chinese gong fu technique. It is like the little black dress of the gong fu world.
Transparent taste and suitable for all tea types, the gong fu borosilicate glass pot is one of our most popular ways of brewing. It is great to observe the leaves as they open and gain better understanding of leaf-water interaction within the pot.
The spout has a steel coil filter to catch most of the leaves and has a smooth pouring motion for no spillages.
Removable spring filter
Ideal for white and green teas, and lightly oxidised oolongs
Additional information: Gong fu cha translates to "tea with great skill". Unlike wine drinkers who learn about vines and vintages, the tea-maker must make what they drink, which requires not just knowledge but skill in selecting and using their tools. A glass teapot is the ideal way to begin practicing this technique. Clay (Yixing) teapots are recommended for tea-makers who have some experience as the teapot allows for better extraction of flavours. A good handmade Yixing starts at around $150.
