Why is a purple-clay teapot good for brewing tea?

The purple sand kettle has good air permeability, so it is not easy for the tea to change its flavor when it is used for brewing. In summer, it will not spoil. Moreover, even if the purple sand kettle is stored for a long time without use, there will be no strange smells. Just fill it with boiling water when using it and then pour out immediately and rinse in cold water to restore its vitality, so that the tea can still get its original flavor. The pot can absorb the tea juice, and there is no strange smell when making tea without brushing the inner wall of the pot.

The advantages of using a purple clay teapot for brewing tea are numerous. Firstly, its porous nature helps to absorb the flavor and aroma of the tea leaves. Secondly, it helps to regulate the water temperature so that the taste of the tea is consistent. Thirdly, it retains heat better than other materials and maintains a warm temperature even after the tea has been prepared. Finally, this type of teapot is both aesthetically pleasing and durable in comparison to other materials.

1. Preparing tea with a purple sand teapot, “Chang Wu Zhi” says that a purple sand teapot “not only preserves the aroma, but also has no cooked soup flavor”. The wall of the pot absorbs the tea aroma and if used for a long time, even when hot water is poured into an empty pot, there will be tea fragrance.

2. Use a purple sand pot to brew tea, it has good thermal shock resistance, it can be put on the fire to boil and also be used in the microwave without exploding.

The unique air permeability of the zisha teapot makes it suitable for making tea. The air permeability prevents the tea from becoming bitter and stale even after leaving it overnight.

The tea brewed in purple sand cups has an intense aroma and color, which will never be the same as boiled water like other teacups. Moreover, even in extreme heat, the taste can remain unchanged for days.

Purple sand cups are more versatile than teapots, suitable for both home and office use.

Using a purple clay teapot for a long time to brew tea not only prevents wear and tear and scratches, but instead it will become glossy like jade due to absorbing the tea soup’s tea oils, making it hard to part with.

Purple sand pot is practical and generous in shape, elegant in shape, combining practicality and decoration. If it is matched with celebrities’ calligraphy and painting, carving and other decorative techniques, it is elegant and lovely, which can be called a masterpiece. It is a treasure for practical collection, gifts for relatives and friends, and memorabilia of meetings!

Precautions when using a purple sand teapot to make tea:
1. Make sure to use purified water, as the water quality affects the taste of the tea.
2. Clean the teapot before use.
3. Avoid over-filling it with tea leaves, as this can lead to poor extraction.
4. When brewing the tea, pour the boiled water in a circular motion so that all the tea leaves are wetted evenly.
5. Ensure you don’t steep for too long, as this will result in bitter tea.

After each steeping, rinse clean with hot water and gently dry with a clean cloth. In the process of drying, a thin layer of tea scale will be wiped off. Only the tea liquid in the sandy soil remains, which cannot be wiped off–because the tea liquid is combined with the sandy soil in trace amounts, making it red and glossy, the surface of the pot loses its luster, mainly because a layer of tea scale adheres to it and makes it lose its luster. So it must be wiped off.

Do not use sweaty hands to touch the teapot. Tea tasting requires stillness. It is also important to keep the teapot clean. As the saying goes, people are made of mud, and even if it is washed every day, there will be dust. That dust and dirt is the accumulation of sweat and dust coagulated on the pot, which is equivalent to not washing your face every day but smearing it with black. Teapots taken care of by sweaty hands are greasy when touched, have a greasy look but lack luster, looking dull and lifeless.

After pouring tea soup, use a brush to spread it evenly – this is very important. Many old people can only pour the tea but cannot make it even. As a result, the body of the pot will be stained unevenly, which looks bad especially on the mouth edge and flow down as well as the joint. Use a brush to spread it evenly in just a few seconds and it’s not complicated. Developing this good habit can solve this problem. You don’t have to brush evenly every time, just keep it in your mind and brush occasionally when you remember.

Specialized pots for specific uses. One pot for one tea, depending on your own preference, and finally decide which type of tea to brew with this pot, and keep it unchanged afterwards, achieving “specialized pots for specific uses”. When brewing tea, choose the pot according to the type of tea, strictly distinguishing and enhancing the taste of the brewed tea.

Maintaining a teapot brings out its beauty, which is already a side product of leisurely drinking tea or cultivating the mind through tea. If one is too focused on immediate progress and loses sight of why they are doing it, then they miss the point of caring for a teapot. Enjoying tea and maintaining a teapot naturally is an active way of life for tea drinkers and pottery enthusiasts to practice the ways of tea and pottery.

That concludes the introduction, there are many advantages to brewing tea with a purple sand teapot; not only it’s convenient to use but also the tea brewed is tasty. Of course, there is also an art to brewing tea with a purple sand teapot – different teapots require different kinds of tea leaves for optimal results.
