Tea set is the finishing touch of China's long tea culture and the art in the eyes of tea friends. Due to the close relationship between the development of tea sets and the development of ceramic production, ceramic tea sets account for a large proportion of tea sets and are more popular among ordinary people due to their moderate prices. Tea sets are essential tea making utensils for tea enthusiasts, so how to distinguish the quality of ceramic tea sets?
1. Choose colors from ceramic tea sets. Be sure to choose ceramic tea sets with good color and luster, but not too flashy, to avoid some chemical glazes that have beautiful colors and contain toxic substances. Also pay attention to whether the outer glaze of ceramic tea sets is clear and not turbid, smooth without scratches, holes, black spots, bubbles, etc., And whether the inner wall of the tea set is smooth.
2. Choose from the appearance of ceramic tea sets. Firstly, you must choose what you like. What you like will be more comfortable and your tea will be more attractive. For a teapot, the design of the teapot should first conform to human mechanics, so it will be very comfortable to hold. Generally speaking, the outlet of a purple clay pot and the handle of the lid are on the same horizontal plane. The connection between the spout, handle, and pot body should be smooth, without obvious bumps, residual mud marks, or uneven color.
3. Listen to the sound and choose ceramic tea sets
You can rub the lid on the spout of the kettle. The quieter the sound, the better. The more boring, the higher the soil content, and the more brittle, the higher the metal content. You can also gently tap the porcelain with your hand to listen to the sound. If the sound is clear and pleasant, it indicates that the porcelain body is delicate and dense, without cracks. When fired at high temperature, the porcelain is intact. If the sound is hoarse, it can be concluded that the porcelain body has cracks or incomplete porcelain quality. This type of porcelain is prone to cracking after changes in temperature.
