The clean lines and modern design of this tray make tea preparation a meditative experience. As you brew, a slight depression in the center of the tray creates the illusion of the water vanishing as it drains below.
Carved from basalt, an igneous rock found in the hills of Hualong County, Qinghai Province, the long tray resembles a section of black bamboo, polished satin smooth. On one corner a stamp is carved with four stylized Chinese characters: Xing Yun Liu Shui, a Chinese idiom meaning to flow naturally or smoothly. Echoing the bamboo theme are beautiful supports of natural bamboo lumber, made from laminating multiple strips of bamboo together to form a solid and contrasting foundation for the stone tray.
Can be set up to drain directly into an included plastic tray or into an under-table reservoir via an included rubber tube. Also includes a bamboo mat.
