Essence of Tea carries now a selection of very traditional pewter tea trays/boats. I have been looking for one for at least a decade, but the old ones are super rare and nobody sells one.
These ones here are new, but made in the old way :)

One of the most popular trays on taobao :)


I have always admired with envy when i saw in an old shop people using one of the old ones, but could not persuade them to sell me one. These new ones look exactly like the old ones :)

I like them a lot. I do not like the bamboo ones, or even worse, the ones with cheap plastic. I have one from clay, which is nice, but this traditional pewter tray is perfect, i hope the parcel comes soon :)
