Living Tea

Handthrown "Jasper" Tea Boat

Unglazed tea boat to rest the teapot during gongfu or sidehandle tea. Overflow tea and water drain into the bowl. This beautiful handthrown tea pillow (Cha Chuan) creates an aesthetically harmonious tea decor following Rikyu's design of rustic simplicity. The boat is large at 19 cm wide and 5 cm high, which looks very nice with a small Zisha pot in the center. It can also be flipped over to make use of the bottom, which creates an entirely different feel.
