This board is cleverly designed with grooves running along the surface to a drain channel that goes all the way around. This allows for a draining board with no slope.
The fact that water poured over teapots drains away, even under the pot itself, makes this style the preferred board for yixing collectors looking to show off their most beautiful pieces. A tube is included for flexible drainage, but the board is also a gorgeous framing piece in modern gongfu sets with a water bowl.

TEA BOARD CARE & CLEANING
This Xiangfu Workshop tea board is a convertible gongfu tea board, and can be used either as a tea boat for modern gongfu style or – if used with the included draining tube – this board can be used as a traditional draining tea board.
Empty this board of all tea and leaves after use, and allow the board dry completely between sessions.
Do not leave wet overnight. Leaving boards wet for extended periods of time can cause a board to warp or crack, and standing water may become unhygienic.
If using as a tea boat, do not overfill the board or leave standing water on the tray for extended periods of time.
If using as a draining tea tray, make sure the water tube is firmly affixed to the draining spigot. Use a water-tight container to catch the water coming out of the tube. Use the tube on its own, or cut your tube just below the edge of your table, and insert the pump between the two cut ends of the tube. Squeeze the pump to encourage water to begin draining down the tube.
Hand wash with warm, soapy water and a gentle sponge.
