When you want to show off your tea to its full potential, this is a fabulous Gong Dao Bei (fairness cup). Made from thick, high quality glass, this Gong Dao Bei has a solid luxury feel and a clean pouring with no dribbles! The hammered glass diffracts the light beautifully, allowing you to inspect the colour of the tea liquor but with an abstract texture.
This Gong Dao Bei is presented in a luxurious padded box.
FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT GONG DAO BEI
The Gong Dao Bei is simply a pitcher for serving tea so that everyone receives an equal strength brew (that's why it is called a fairness cup). If you were to serve direct from a tea pot or gaiwan, the first cup would get a weaker brew than the last cup (unless you are brewing Chaozhou style but that's a different conversation). The Gong Dao Bei allows you to strain the tea from the pot or gaiwan into this pitcher to even out the brew so that everyone gets to taste the same tea.
