Tea comes from trees, so why not pour tea from a tree? That's what the makers of this whimsical gong dao bei (faircup, pitcher) must have been thinking. This crystal clear tree trunk has a stump handle and textured bark that looks beautiful with tea in it.
Although it is very large, this gong dao bei is only intended to be filled about halfway (~150 ml). Filling it much more can result in the handle getting too hot to hold.
The pour on these gong dao bei is not as clean as what we usually like and we probably won't be restocking these when they sell out. That said, when it comes to looking like a glass tree and pouring tea at the same time, they are the only game in town as far as we know.
