Cha He 茶荷

Cha he is an interesting kind of teaware for tea art. It's called "cha he" in Mandarin. They are used to display the tea to your guests before you put the tea into the teapot. It's actually a useful thing. You scoop the tea out of the tea container directly into the cha he. Then, you can use some tea tools to transfer the correct amount of tea leaf to the teapot. It's nice to allow your guests, or even yourself to get a good look; and admire the fresh tea leaves.
