Handmade Puerh Tray

+

Puerh trays are designed to be used when breaking up a puerh cake or any kind of compressed tea. The tray catches the broken-up tea leaves and the opening conveniently funnels the leaves onto a tea scoop, keeping your tea space clean, organized and functional.

Most puerh trays are square. They are joined with glue and often made of cheap materials which isn’t ideal for tea. The tea leaves usually get stuck in the corners, so they don’t function well in our experience. Wu De designed a round puerh tray with walls that flare out. It’s handmade by the one and only Shen Su using a single piece of Beechwood. No corners, no glue—just natural materials and curved surfaces. They are hand turned on a lathe and finished with 100% natural beeswax, making them safe for contact with tea.

Beechwood is perfect for these trays because it has very little aroma, especially after being finished with beeswax. The wood is relatively hard making it durable even with regular use. The light-colored grain shows off the tea leaves nicely and will slowly darken over time.
