Cha He (茶盒)

Cha He (茶盒) – ‘tea box’ – a vessel for the introduction of tea. It is customary in China to first look at the tea in the cha he and then ‘deep face’ into it; inhaling, exhaling, and inhaling once more, deeply through the nose. It allows for the participants to evaluate the tea that they will be drinking, be introduced to the look and aroma of the tea leaves and to gently ‘wake’ up the tea by warming it with the breath.
