Teapot with kung fu tea
The most luxurious in the "Kung Fu Tea" tea Gongfu tea is tea. It is the reason why there is tea and other tea. It is said that Lu Yu had made tea, where the 24-something. Chaozhou Gongfu tea with the tea at least ten. That is:
The teapot Chaozhou dialect called "red tank", also called the "Soviet tank" because it is from Yixing, Jiangsu Province, Yixing teapot in one of the smallest. Select the teapot, good or bad standard four-character formula: "a small, shallow, Qi, old." Teapot there are two tanks, three tanks, four cans of Meng Chen, iron picture Hin, autumn garden, garden statue, and the hills, Yuan Xisheng manufacture of the most cherished. Pot style with small, such as oranges, big like mandarin orange, melon-shaped, persimmon-shaped, diamond-shaped, drum-shaped, plum-shaped, hexagonal, chestnut-shaped ... and so on, are usually used drum-shaped, upright and vigorous, whichever is it is also Pots of color there are many, cinnabar, ancient iron, maroon, purple, yellow stone, azure ... and so on, there is an expensive, silver sand flashing, Zhu grain numerous popular that the pumping leather sand, the most precious . But regardless of style, color, the most important "should be small is not big, Yi Qian, not deep, because big is not" work ". Large teapot, teapot, tea drums, tea sieve, tea stalls ...... and so red tea, even $ 100 one or two of tea, it can not be regarded as kung fu tea. As for the depth of odor, light brew taste can be fragrant, not water, so that the tea was not easy to change astringent. Addition to the large and small, deep, shallow, the teapot is the most luxurious: "Three Shan Qi", which is the most important criterion of good or bad tasting pot. : To go to cover the teapot on the table cover set (preferably on a very flat glass), if the pot drip nozzle spout, pot carrying handle, three level, three-Shan Qi "is. This is related to the level and quality of the pot, so the most stress. "Old" see "tea leaves" the size of the pot accumulated, has already started in the front said. Of course, the word "old" pay attention to, for example, what dynasty produced, ancient history, what Mingjiang made, and what famous tasting too ...... and so on. But that is not generally teapot, but the play antique.
Chong Kung Fu tea in addition to "red tank", and sometimes the guests for a long time, can also be covered bowl. Must be up in Chaozhou restaurant each eat a dish after a patrol effort tea, that is, with the covered bowl red, which is to apply to the large number of occasions, a 10 pregnant to twelve pregnant. But after all, cover ou mouth wide, you can not taste, smell much backward than the use of red cans. However, as long as the tea of "something" can also be covered bowl out of a good kung fu tea.
Second, the choice of cup cup also has a four-character formula: small, light, thin, white. A small sip and do; shallow water does not remain at the end; color white as jade, used to set off the color of tea; as thin as paper so that it can from the incense. Chaozhou tea drinkers often white, blue flowers, the end of weekday wide, the bottom of the cup book deep treasure, "" If the deep forest, "rare, but easy. Small cup of white porcelain, Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province and Chaozhou produced also a good, commonly known as for ginkgo Cup.
As for some people to pay attention to what spring should be bovine heart, summer should chestnut cup, autumn should lotus leaf cup, winter should bell pregnant ", which no pay attention too much. However, the horn cup, milk cup ... as a kung fu tea cup, is not very appropriate, lose "gentle" the road.
Tea to wash such as bowl-shaped shades of color samples, cooking fu tea essential three, two, is to wash for the dip cup, Vice wash to dip the red cans, one for the Sheng washing of cups of water and has bubble tea.
The tea tray tea tray is used for holding the cup, there are a variety of styles, moon-shaped, board-shaped ... and so on. But no matter what the style, the most important four-character formula: Wide, flat, shallow, white. Disk is to be wide, so that the amount of the number of guests, you can put a few more pregnant; bottom of the plate should be flat, we will not make the cup unstable, easy to shake; side to light, color white, which are to set off the cup , teapots, to make it beautiful.
Five, tea mats, tea tray is used to set the red tank, there are a variety of style, but short, one should note that the summer shallow depth of winter ". Winter deep, so easy pouring cans loaded more than boiling water, tea is not easy cold tea pad also mat layer of "carpet pad, carpet pad tea pad shape and size of cut loofah with a loofah instead of cloth felt, in order not to the raw smell of carpet pad in order to protect the teapot, kung fu tea after tea spill teapot upside down to avoid the pot water, a little bit of water will its flavor and become bitter, tannic acid dissolved.
Six, the role of bottle and water bowl are used for water storage to make tea. Water bottle, repair neck Chuijian, flat, carrying handle, plain porcelain blue and white the best. There is also a beam neck mouth, decorated with dragons called dragons bottles is also good. (Dragons, Chaozhou dialect called "Qian", Teochew is a dual sound rhyming, money, Chi is the rhyming word, that is, the gecko.)
Bowl of water, is used to storage ready to make tea, the size of homogeneous equal to an ordinary flower pot, a lot of style. Ming Dynasty the system of "red gold color, metal glaze, gilt fish two Queensland in the bowl and the end of the water to scoop water move, like goldfish swimming jump For this is rare treasures, the general common factors porcelain blue and white placed the tea in bed, covered with bright red wood cover, scoop water with the coconut shell, coconut dipper when the tea is not boiled, master Kai Gai scoop water, "Kung Fu Tea" work does not drink and convincing men .
Similar to the tribunal, Long cylinder Long cylinder planted lotus lotus tank, or smaller. Used for storing a large number of springs, dense cover, under the care of wood few, on the den corner of the antique. Long cylinder are bisque, blue and white Ming Xuande made, but it is difficult to see. Kangxi Qianlong products, has also been extremely valuable. Modern products, as long as the color size reconcile, there is very good.
Eight small fire in the green ants baking wine red mud, red mud small fire in the night to day For snow can not drink?

As for the cold nights off to tea wine ", this time with red mud stove tea, boiled tea is like Chaozhou Gongfu, like drinking tea, the poets did not specify. But I think about should be the case, or the cold nights of a bowl and a bowl of tea, would not people urinate frequently, sitting not? That guests have long Batui ran away, who can sit down to go into the details. So, I think this cold night off to tea when the wine "tea, should be equivalent to today's kung fu tea is.
