5 Degree Angle Tea Table / tea table

5 Degree Angle Tea Table

In Chinese tea ceremonial culture, it is required drop the first tea water into the tea table. People always be splashed by the hot water when they drop the water into the table.
Our design avoid this situation skillfully. Our inspiration comes from the Chinese maritime Silk Road.
This tea table has five degree angle, the dropped water could flow into the left leakage holes along with the ancient Chinese maritime Silk Road slowly. It not only could avoid the scald, but what is the most important is that people can associate Chinese tea, ceramic and Chinese map. Uses could appreciate the charm of Chinese culture through this tea table.
