How to choose tea set ?

The rise of tea utensils is closely related to the way we use tea.

We talk about how to choose tea sets from 4 aspects

·  When did the tea set appear?
·  What are the functions of tea sets?
·  What kind of tea goes with what device?

·  How to choose the right tea set?

When did the tea set appear?

In primitive society, our ancestors discovered wild tea trees, which were eaten raw and chewed directly. Later, fresh leaves were picked and boiled together with onion, ginger and garlic in a pot. We call the food mixed with tea leaves "Ming Congee". At that time, there was no special tea utensils, and the utensils used were general edible utensils.

After a long period of transition, tea was gradually separated from general ingredients and used exclusively for drinking. Until the Tang Dynasty, Lu Yu recorded in the Classic of Tea that there were as many as 24 utensils for making tea, drinking tea and storing tea, each of which performed its own function, which is much more than the utensils used for drinking tea now. The popularity of tea drinking has spread throughout the country, and the consumption of tea has increased. 

The picture below is the contemporary restoration of Lu Yu's twenty-four tea set.

Tea drinking developed to the Song Dynasty, and ordering tea was popular all over the country. Song Huizong's "Daguan Tea Theory" 《大观茶论》praised the blue and black built lamps, and a good lamp was worth 10,000 pieces of silk at that time.

 Then it developed to the Ming and Qing dynasties, and the rise of the bubble method also led to the development of purple clay teapots. Eighteen styles of classic purple clay teapots designed by Chen Mansheng and made by Yang Pengnian - "Mansheng Eighteen Styles" are particularly famous. At this time, a small teapot of about 200 ml appeared in the tea set, and it has continued to modern times. Therefore, the evolution of tea utensils reflects the changes in the way Chinese people drink tea. From eating it raw, to cooking it, then grinding it into tea powder and drinking it, and finally drinking only the tea soup steeped from tea.

How to choose the right tea set?

If you want to do good work, you must first sharpen your utensils. Choosing the right tea utensils can add a lot of points to your tea. To choose a suitable tea utensil, the principle is to use the tea selector.

For tea soups such as black tea and oolong tea, which are mainly aroma-based teas, the selected tea utensils should be dense and airtight. Porcelain and glassware are recommended. There are also pottery glazed inside and outside and purple clay pots made of vermilion mud. Because of their high density, they can maximize the retention of the aroma of tea leaves in the tea soup.

For tea with a mellow taste, such as Pu`er tea, Dark tea or old tea, we should choose some tea utensils with good air permeability and relatively low density of materials, such as stoneware or mud in purple sand. This type of utensil can remove the bad old taste in old tea and dark tea, and make the soup feel more mellow and smooth.

There is a special kind of tea vessel, that is, purple sand. Zisha has many clay materials, many shapes, and more names.
How to choose?
I teach you a simple trick: the color of the pot matches the color of the soup. The color of the soup is the color of the tea soup brewed from the tea leaves, so choose a pot of the corresponding color. With a tea selector, the color of the pot matches the color of the soup.

After choosing a tea set, how to maintain it for daily use?

Why is the process of using a tea set called raising? You raise your child, and the child will give you the old-age care in the future. You grow a plant and it produces beautiful flowers for you to enjoy. Keep the pot, keep the cup, keep the cup. It gives you better tea soup, better texture. The word nurture means that you have to spend time and energy to take care of it, so when you use a tea utensil, you must know how to take care of it.

Conservation of tea container: clean, dry and avoid greasy. After the tea maker has finished brewing tea, it is recommended to clean it up immediately, and if conditions do not allow it, do not leave it overnight. Use the hot water for making tea to wash the inside and outside of the tea pot. I really like to make a plate of this pot. Can you? Of course you can, pay attention to wash your hands before you start. If you want to take a silver pot, wait for the temperature of the pot to drop. down and clean again after the plate is finished.

After choosing a tea set, how to maintain it for daily use?

First of all, starting from the entry-level, to meet the functional needs of making tea, white porcelain and glass tea sets like Zhengshantang are enough. Because it does not absorb water, any kind of tea can be brewed, and the cup has a wide rim and is not easy to burn. The price is moderate.

Advanced tea utensils should be tried with caution. It is recommended that you start with your own interests, find a few favorite categories, and buy a small amount. Tea, it is not a necessity of life, but it will make our life a little better.
