Glass Fairness Cup Gong Dao Bei Cha Hai Gongdaobei Fair Cup Heat Resistant Heat-Resistance
What is the purpose of using a Glass Fairness Cup such as the one listed here? Pouring tea from the teapot directly into cups is convenient. However, the downside is that the first cup of tea will taste different from the last cup you serve. The reason is simple – the tea from the last cup has stayed longer in the pot, thus it would extract more flavour from the leaves and have a stronger taste. This is especially the case when you brew small portions of tea with a high leaf-to-water ratio.
The solution to this is to use this Glass Fairness Cup, which is also known as a ‘Gong Dao Bei’ (Fairness Cup) or ‘Cha Hai’. Pouring all the tea first into this glass pitcher will evenly distribute its flavour for serving into cups! This also allows you to distrubute tea to different people in equal portions, hence the name “Fairness Cup”.
What’s more, using a transparent glass Fairness Cup like the one here greatly enhances your tea experience, because it can allow you to clearly observe the colour of the brew. It is versatile and is suitable for use together with gaiwans, small Yixing Clay Teapots and other brewing vessels as large as 500ml/17oz.
