Chinese tea trays are a central point in many Chinese homes and the center for formal and informal tea ceremonies. People will gather round the tea tray, chat and drink tea.
Trays come in sizes from those suited for the avid tea drinker who entertains numerous guests or for use in tea houses, down to those, small, compact tea trays that can be kept at the side of a computer.
Tea, art, and nature have a close relationship. Specialist teas scream out for unique and beautiful complementing accessories and the tea tray is the central focus.
