You could say it's a natural consequence after the pour-over craze that swept the world of coffee: Why not do the same with tea? But another way to think about it is that the world of tea, especially in Japan, has been fussy for centuries before coffee was even discovered! In a way, brewing tea by slowly hand-dripping hot water over the leaves has been in the making for years. The difference is that now there is something like the Hario Cha Cha Tea Dripper to help you do it more effectively!
The special server that comes with the Hario Cha Cha Tea Dripper brings to mind the Erlenmeyer flasks used in labs! The whole set is a server, dripper, and holder for the dripper, making for a stylish ensemble that you can leave around on the kitchen counter even after you have brewed your perfect cup of tea (unlike most everyday utensils, which you want to hide in a cupboard). Depending on your preferences and the angle of the dripper on the holder, you can let the water pour faster or slower from the filter to the server, affecting how thin your tea is. And to get you started, the set includes a pack of 40 high-quality paper filters, good for any type of tea!
