The grate of the tea tray allows excess and waste liquids to drain, and either collected in a pan under the grate or drained through a hose that carries the waste water and tea to a bucket or other drain.
In Gongfu-style brewing, the cups, pots, and other serving items are repeatedly rinsed in hot water and tea to ensure that proper temperatures are maintained and that the vessels are sanitary, without diluting the tea. When making tea this way, a pot of tea will be brewed in 4 to 10 rounds. Because Gongfu is a wet process, the tea-draining tray is necessary to keep the process tidy and elegant.
