Fixed-point low pouring
When brewing tea with this method, if it is loose-leaf tea, pour the water into the place without tea leaves and slowly irrigate. The substances in the tea leaves will be slowly released and the brewed tea soup will have a more delicate taste. If brewing chunk-shaped tea, inject each time at the tea leaves so that the tightly bound chunk-shaped teas can be more stretched out, and the presented tea soup will also be fuller.
Fixed point high pressure
When pouring the water, choose one point to avoid the tea leaves, pour the water at a fixed point. The water flow should be high and strong, so that the tea leaves can roll up and down, which is beneficial for the expansion of the tea leaves and stimulating its aroma. Remember to avoid directly impacting the tea leaves with water. Using this method to brew tea will make the taste fuller and richer in layers.
The mouth of the teapot and the inner wall of the lid bowl have a 45 degree angle for water injection, which makes the water spin like a vortex. With the power of water, it can drive tea leaves to release its contained substances evenly, resulting in a uniform and richer taste when brewed. It is suitable for brewing oolong tea, black tea and other shaped teas, so that these shaped tea leaves can be more orderly under the effect of water flow.
Glass cups are mainly suitable for grass flower grass, black tea, green tea, Pu’er tea, fruit tea, health-preserving tea and craft flower tea and coffee series, with high ornamental value and interestingness.
