Spring is here and what better way to celebrate than tea picnics! This woven bamboo basket has moveable padded sections to keep all your tea wares safe. This is a staple that works both as a way to keep your tea items organized at home and is easy to pick up and take on a trip.
You can either purchase just the basket, or get it outfitted with a whole tea set. Both the porcelain pot and gaiwan hold about 8oz. of water. There is a glass pitcher included as well as a set of bamboo utensils.
This is one of the most versatile pots to have in your collection. Made of borosilicate glass, this 650ml pot can go right on the stove to boil water or be used to infuse teas. It's great when you need to simmer herbs for a long period or just heat up water to steep in your other pots. The simple and elegant style makes it visually appealing to have at the tea table, compared to a bulky kettle.
It features a steam hole at the top as well as a spring strainer hooked onto the spout to strain out any leaves. When boiled, let the pot rest for a minute before handling, or use a hanky to protect your hand.
Made from mutton fat jade, this tea set is not only beautiful, but tough too. Everything you see here gets nestled into a bag and tucked into a molded travel case. The porcelain has a translucent quality to it with mountains painted on the sides. The dark glass pitcher has thick walls for durability and adds a little drama to the set. You can either play it neutral and choose a forest green case or embrace your inner diva with the patterned case.
I have brought this around the world with me and it is still in perfect shape. I even let my 5-year-old make tea and he has not even chipped it yet. It's a great set!
Whether you're an avid traveler, or just looking for an afternoon picnic, it's always important to protect your teaware on the way. These padded bags are big enough to keep your favorite gaiwan or teacup safe on the go!
