There are all kinds and sizes of teacups. Different teas should be served with different cups. In recent years, sniffing cups that allow one to drink tea while smelling the aroma have become increasingly popular. According to the shape and color of the teapot, select an appropriate teacup to create a pleasing aesthetic combination. For ease of appreciation for the tea soup color, as well as easy cleaning, it is best for the inside of the cup to be glazed in a white or light-colored hue. The requirements for the cup should be comfortable to grip and hold, and smooth when entering the mouth.
II. Tea Strainer
– Used for steeping tea leaves and filtering out the leaves when pouring tea
– Can be made of various materials, including fine stainless steel mesh, porcelain or bamboo
– Easy to use and clean
When preparing tea, the tea strainer should be placed on the mouth of the teapot in order to guide the tea into the pot and prevent tea leaves from falling outside.
Third, cover the bowl.
Put three grams of tea leaves into a bowl or cup, add water, and cover it for five to six minutes before drinking. This is the usual way to make tea and one steep is usually enough; no more than two steeps should be made.
Fourth, Tea Tray
A plate for holding teacups or other tea utensils, to catch the tea water flowing out or spilling during the tea-making process. It can also be used as a plate to place teacups. The tea plate comes in plastic and stainless steel materials, with various shapes such as round and rectangular.
Tea is an important part of Chinese culture. Drinking tea has become a way to appreciate nature, relax the mind and body, and enjoy life with friends and family. There are five main types of tea: white, green, oolong, black, and post-fermented. Each type of tea has its own unique flavor, aroma, taste, and color. For example, white tea is light in color and often has a sweet aftertaste; green tea is known for its refreshing taste; oolong tea is fragrant and smooth; black tea has a bold flavor; and post-fermented tea is aged for a long period of time to develop its distinct flavor. Enjoying different types of teas can take you on a journey through Chinese culture.
The tea tray is a utensil for pouring tea into the teapot, generally made of bamboo.
Six, Tea Pressing
Tea pressing is a method of making tea that requires two cups that fit snugly together. Leaves are placed in the lower cup, which is filled with hot water. The upper cup is then pressed down into the lower cup and held there for a few minutes until the tea has brewed. This method produces a stronger flavor than other brewing methods.
Also known as tea chopsticks, the function of the tea scoop is the same as that of a teaspoon, which can extract the tea residue from the pot. It is also often used to scoop up a teacup for washing and prevent scalding and keep it clean.
Seventh, Tea Towel
The tea towel, also known as the tea cloth, has the main purpose of drying the pot before making tea. It can be used to wipe away any water left on the bottom of the pot or sea and any tea spills that have landed on the table.
Eight, Tea Needle
The function of the tea needle is to unclog the internal network (honeycomb) of the teapot, so as to keep water flowing smoothly.
Nine, Water Boiler
A water boiler is an appliance used to boil water. It can be electric or gas-powered and typically consists of a container with a heating element at the bottom, as well as an insulation layer and a thermostat. The container is filled with cold water, and when the heating element is activated, the water is heated to boiling point. Water boilers are often used in commercial settings for making tea or other hot drinks.
In ancient times, tea kettles were heated by charcoal stoves. Currently, the most common ones are alcohol lamps and electric kettles. In addition, gas stoves and electric water heaters are also available. I use an automatic electric stove.
Ten, tea canister
The storage container for tea leaves must be odorless, sealed and not transparent, and the materials include tinplate, stainless steel, tin-aluminum alloy and ceramic.
Eleven, Tea Boat
A container used to hold a teapot, with tea leaves put into the teapot and boiling water poured in. The hot water is then poured over the teapot from above to warm it. The boiling water can also be used to wash tea cups. Also known as a teapool or pot bearer, its common functions are: holding hot water for heating cups, catching spills of tea from the pot and keeping the tea warm.
Twelve, Tea Sea
Also known as tea pot or public cup, the teapot sea is used to even out the concentration of tea soup after it has been steeped and soaked in the teapot. A filter may be placed on top of the teapot sea to filter out any tea residue or dregs. When a teapot sea is not available, the teapot can also be used for this purpose – to hold the brewed tea soup before pouring it into individual cups, so that each cup contains equal concentrations of the tea soup and that any residue can settle at the bottom.
Also known as a tea scoop, the teaspoon is shaped like a soup spoon, hence its name. Its main purpose is to scoop out the steeped tea leaves from within a teapot. After the tea has been brewed, it often gets tightly packed into the teapot and due to the usually small opening of a teapot, it is both inconvenient and unhygienic to try and scoop out the tea leaves with one’s hands; thus, a teaspoon is generally used.
