For those people who love to drink tea for a long time, only know something about tea ware, he could make a cup of good tea. And as following we will introduce an important part in it-----"Gaiwan" History A story is going around that the "Gaiwan" was invented in Tang Dynasty of TangZongJianZhong. At that time, the tea cup without substrate is very hot. So wooden tray was invented to place a tea cup. But it is very easy to slip. So the people who love tea try to use wax fixing the glass. What is we called the earliest tea boat. And later, the bottom ring made by wax has been done more and more novel and beautiful. Moral "Gaiwan" also called "Three bowl", "Three cup". Just as its name implies, it is a kind of Han Chinese tea set, which has teapot on top, saucer down below and teacup in the middle. For Chinese people, teapot is for sky, saucer for earth and the teacup for people, all of which implies the unity of nature and mankind. When you try to taste tea, please pay attention to the thing that the tea pot, bowl, and cup should not be used separately, otherwise, you will leave a feeling of impolite to others. Material According to the production of raw materials is different, the "Gaiwan" can be roughly divided into three categories: White porcelain, Ru kiln and Blue and white porcelain "Gaiwan". The cheaper one is white porcelain Gaiwan, which is very suitable for general people in common. And Ru kiln Gaiwan is more suitable for local lord, and it is inevitably the best choice for all bosses. Although the structure of Gaiwan is very simple, in contrast, its crafts are more demanding. It is very difficult to produce as the Gaiwan need to made matching exactly, and its hand-painted need to be more elegant. Using In fact, in the early time, Gaiwan is used in personal. That is blending with brewing and drinking. Using Gaiwan to drink tea is the most popular way in Qing dynasty. And then it was used as teapot. As it is easier to observe the color of tea water and clean up than teapot. Thus, the Gaiwan developed into the utensil for brewing tea, matching with handleless cup and cup became another form of tea ware combination. Advantages The biggest advantage of using Gaiwan to brew tea is that it is suitable for any kind of tea, not same as glass is only suitable for green tea, but not for any other tea. And dark-red enameled pottery should not be recommended for bubbling green tea. A passage in Taste Tea written by LuXun, "If you want to enjoy the special aroma of tea, the best is to use Gaiwan to bubble tea. And then we try it. As expected, after brewing, the color of tea water is pure and taste slight sweet mix with a little bitter. It is do a good tea." From this, even Mr. LuXun the outstanding Chinese writer is also prefer to using Gaiwan to bubble tea. So, no matter from tea appreciation, or from the perspective of health care, Gaiwan is inevitably the better choice for you. The gaiwan, also known as the Sancai bei, Chazhan or Covered bowl, is often used as a substitute teapot. It also can be used as a tea cup. It is normally used for brewing scented tea. Gaiwan is the preferred method for brewing green and white tea because the gaiwan's porcelain absorbs the heat and does not damage the tea soup. Gaiwans are less suitable for black tea because the large lid allows heat to escape too quickly during the brewing process.
