Chinese Tea Set

Chinese tea sets are often used in Asian countries to honor guests and make them feel comfortable. In China, people use Chinese tea sets on many occasions.

Tea sets can be made out of porcelain, brass, or metal, and they can also be made from more expensive materials like gold or silver. The most common tea set is the Yixing clay pot, Jingdezhen porcelain cup, and Fujian ceramic Gaiwan.

A Chinese tea set is a beautiful and elegant way to serve tea. It comprises various items, including the teapot, Gaiwan cup, fair cup, strainer, teacups, tea tray, and some accessories.

The teapot is usually made of porcelain or ceramic in different shapes. The more common ones are round pots with a lid opening on the top, and the lid usually has a spout to pour the tea into the cup. The teapots of Chinese tea sets are generally more miniature.

Gaiwan is a small vessel for brewing tea that takes the place of a teapot. Gaiwan consists of three parts: a bowl, lid, and saucer. It is typically small enough that all three components can be picked up in one hand. Gaiwan is standard for kung fu tea, and Chinese tea is mainly based on kung fu tea.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a tea set, and it is essential to know what you want before buying a set: Entertaining guests or for your use? Whether to use the Gaiwan skillfully?

If you are entertaining guests, you have to pick one with a luxury tea tray. If it is for your use, you should choose a relatively lightweight one. Gaiwan makes kung fu more fun, so you can use a teapot if you are not good with it.

With the above information in mind, you will want to determine the following details:

– How many people are drinking tea together?

– Does the tea tray need a drainage hole?

– Does it need a tea caddy to store the tea leaves?

The most significant difference between Chinese tea sets and Japanese tea sets is in the teapot. The teapots of Chinese tea sets are generally more miniature, and there are even such tiny teapots as Yixing Zisha pots. Chinese tea sets even use Gaiwan instead of teapots to achieve the purpose of making tea.
