Tea

A drink obtained by cooking, brewing and / or infusing a leaf of a tea bush, which is pre-prepared in a special way. In the names of such drinks, an explanation is usually added to the word “tea”, characterizing the raw materials used (“herbal tea”, “berry tea”, “fruit tea” and so on). Tea drinking as a tradition appeared in China.

The word “tea” also refers to the leaf of the tea bush itself, processed and prepared for the preparation of the drink. Preparation includes pre-drying (drying), twisting, more or less prolonged enzymatic oxidation, final drying. Other operations are introduced into the process only for the production of certain types and varieties of tea. Sometimes the word “tea” is also used as the name of a tea bush — a plant species of the genus Camellia of the Tea family; in the botanical scientific literature, the name Chinese camellia (Camellia sinensis) is usually used for this species.

Shepherd. What is it and why is it needed?

Shepherd – in translation means “tea board”. It is an indispensable attribute of a classic tea ceremony or tasting. By organizing spaces, the shepherd also serves to simplify the process of shedding tea raw materials. You can safely pour the first brew directly onto the tea table without fear that it will spoil. Its design is such that under the upper layer of the shepherd, in which holes are made, there is a tray for collecting water. In some shepherds there is a special tube for draining.

Thanks to the design features of the tea board, nothing will prevent you from enjoying the taste of a truly magical drink.

Tea bowl – why and what are the features

A tea bowl is a rather interesting small container without handles. This is a classic device for tea parties, which came from the east. The small volume and lack of handles is exactly what distinguishes a small product from tureens or cups.

What is a bowl
The bowls are small round containers with a volume of 25-100 mil. In our store you can find various options in the “tableware” section. This volume was not chosen by chance, most kettles and gaiwans also do not accommodate a large capacity of tea.

Plus the small size is also that the tea does not have time to cool down at the moment when a person drinks it. We take small sips, and the liquid spreads throughout the mouth, which means that there is more taste and aroma.

The material for the bowls can be different. Glass, stone, clay and even porcelain are used. The choice of a bowl depends solely on what is needed for your tea ceremony. It should fit both externally and correspond to the volume.
