Chinese Traditional Tea Set --- Tea washing container

Since people in the Ming Dynasty used bulk tea which might catch dust during processing, washing tea became another stage before making tea. The tea washing container is a special utensil for washing tea. It looks like a bowl with two layers. At the bottom of the upper one, there are many small holes. People put tea in it and wash with water. Dust and grits will flow out from the holes with water. Some tea washing containers are made into a flat pot.
