Development of Tea Cups and Saucers in China

From Xinxiang Tea Cups and Saucers Manufacturer,As the saying goes, seven things open the door, firewood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar and tea, tea is people can not leave. Because people are closely related to tea, over time, there are many fastidious ideas about the types of tea, the water for cooking tea, the method for making tea, the utensils for drinking tea, and the rites for respecting tea. As a result, a rich and colorful tea culture emerged.

China is the home of tea, tea drinking has a long history. As early as the Three Kingdoms Period, people in Jiangnan had the habit of drinking tea. By the Wei, Jin, Southern and Northern Dynasties, the scholar-bureaucrats had formed the trend of drinking tea. In the mid-Tang Dynasty, tea shops specializing in tea began to appear in some large cities. Tea in the Jianghuai area is shipped and sold by businessmen to various places. Bai Juyi, a famous poet, wrote in his long poem Pipa Xing that the merchant paid more attention to profit than to departure, and Fuliang bought tea the month before. Fuliang, now Jingdezhen, was the tea distribution center at that time.

China is also a country of porcelain, and its ceramic culture is extensive and profound. Once tea culture and ceramic culture collide, they complement each other and improve cultural taste. The first monograph on tea in the world is the Book of Tea written by Lu Yu of the Tang Dynasty, which talks about the relationship between the color of tea soup and the color of ceramic tea sets. In the Tang and Song Dynasties, there was the custom of fighting tea. The princes and nobles and the common people competed to enjoy it. The so-called tea fighting is to place the tea cake in the cup, wash it with boiling water, and win or lose according to the color and quality of the soup flower. Tea cups are the most important thing in tea fighting. Most Song people regarded the black glazed pottery with partridge spots or rabbit hair or oil droplets fired in Fujian kiln as a treasure. Today, at some construction sites in Nanjing City, we can often pick up samples of this kind of porcelain. It can be seen that the "beautiful land in the south of the Yangtze River, Emperor State of Jinling" in Nanjing was at the height of tea fighting.

When it comes to tea cups and saucers, the most precious one is Yongle blue and white cups in Ming Dynasty. Its beautiful shape, elegant decoration, pure cobalt orchid, very aesthetic. Such noble cups are exclusively for the Royal Palace and noble families, and the quantity of them is naturally very small. According to records, there are few remaining Wanli Period. Although there are imitations in all dynasties, it is difficult to achieve its artistic height. At present, there are
only three Yongle cups in the world, which are rare treasures, and not to mention the original, even the fragments of the previous dynasty's imitations are rare.

Since the mid-Ming Dynasty, tea-making in pots has gradually become a fashion, among which small and simple purple sand teapots are most praised. Because purple clay pots have more advantages and characteristics than silver, tin and porcelain pots, it can be said that each is a delicate work of art. Li Yu said:'The essence of a pot is nothing better than the envy of the sun. 'Yangxian is Yixing, Jiangsu Province.

Cao Xueqin is a master of tea ceremony. In his Dream of Red Mansions, 97 stories about tea were written back. The most brilliant 41 chapters "Jia Baoyu Pin Tea Quecui Ancient". Miaoyu's tea for Jia Mu and others is Laojunmei, water is the rainwater of the old year, tea sets are colorful bells in kilns and white cups in official kilns. It's extraordinary, but it's different from the body tea that Baochai and Daiyu eat. Tea sets are made by Wang Kai and appreciated by Su Shi. They look like bowls and have little "dots and rhinos" with the letters of pendulous beads. Water is the snow on plum blossoms harvested five years ago. It is natural and mellow. This fully reflects the style of Chinese nobility, and is probably the highest level of tea culture.
