Many people have come into contact with drinking tea in life, and often see others making tea. Making tea seems simple, but when you try it yourself, you will find that making tea in a covered bowl is very appreciable, but also easy to burn your hand. So how can we use the covered bowl to make tea without burning our hands?

How to use a cup to steep tea without burning your hands?

Proper technique is key when it comes to picking up a lid bowl. Place your thumb and index finger in the right position, use an appropriate amount of pressure to grab the edge of the lid bowl, otherwise it will be hot.

The position of the ten fingers is equally important. It’s best to press the lid of the bowl with the first joint of your ten fingers. Try it and you will know.

3. Depending on what tea you are brewing, there are different ways to rinse it, such as high rinsing and low rinsing. You can research the proper method for the tea you are making.

4. When pouring out the soup, be careful about the size of the bowl’s mouth, be careful of the hot air from behind. The pouring mouth should not be too small, otherwise it will scald you with hot air.

5. Lid the Bowl with Skill: The edges should be spread outward, and it is best to lift up the lid with your thumb and middle finger without touching the bowl body while applying slight force.

6.When pouring water, pour it along the wall of the bowl without swirling and don’t fill the bowl too full.

Leave a line of sky: keep a little gap between the bowl and the lid, place the lid with the front lower and the back higher, lower than the soup outlet, in order to pour out the soup.

Practice makes perfect: grasp the edge of the bowl, the smaller the contact surface, the better; practice more to improve hand heat resistance.

What kind of bowl does not burn your hands?

Cover the bowl and cup with a certain curvature.

The cup body of the cover bowl has a certain curvature, which can alleviate the transmission of heat. After being held by fingers, it will not be scalded by high temperature. If the cup body does not have curvature, the high temperature will quickly spread to the mouth of the cup, making it difficult for fingers to bear.

Cover the bowl with lid and keep a certain distance from the rim of the cup.

Keep a certain distance between the lid and the rim of the cup, which will block the heat in between. The temperature at the rim of the cup won’t be too high. This way, your fingers won’t get burned. If the distance between the lid and rim is too small, heat will be transmitted quickly to the rim and your fingers cannot bear it.

The distance between both sides of the bowl should be appropriate.

When selecting a lid for your bowl, hold the left and right sides of the lid with your thumb and index finger to feel if the distance is suitable. If it can be picked up easily, it suggests that it is more suitable; if it is difficult to pick up, it indicates that it does not fit. When you can easily pick up the lid with your finger, only one point of your finger needs to support the lid, so that less area will touch the rim of the bowl, thus avoiding too much heat. If your fingers cannot pick up the lid easily, they will use a larger area to support the lid, which makes it easy to get burned; therefore, when choosing a lid for your bowl, controlling the distance between both sides of the rim is also very important.

The lid of the bowl cover should have a certain thickness.

When using the lid of a bowl, you need to hold it with your thumb and index finger and press the tip of your middle finger inward to keep the lid from falling off when pouring out the soup. The temperature of the lid during the process of steeping tea is also quite high, so it needs to have a certain thickness in order to insulate heat and not burn your middle finger. If the lid is too thin, the high temperature will quickly spread to the outer wall, making it impossible for your middle finger to bear it.

Pouring tea while covering the cup with a lid may scald one’s hand. This is caused by two factors – the choice of lid and pouring technique. If the lid is not correctly placed, the tea water will spill in an uneven manner, which is likely to cause scalding. When one pauses after being scalded, some of the tea that has yet to be poured will go back into the cup, resulting in a different taste.
