Introduction:
When drinking Kung Fu tea, a lot of tea should be put in the teapot. Due to the small capacity of the teapot, the tea juice cannot be dissolved smoothly. The teapot must be placed in a tea tray and poured with boiling water. The teapot can be soaked horizontally in hot water to facilitate the smooth dissolution of tea juice. When the teapot is immersed in water, it can maintain a horizontal shape. Therefore, when making the teapot, not only the spout and handle should be coordinated, but also the weight should be balanced and consistent. So it is called “horizontal teapot”.
Purple-clay 紫砂 [zǐ shā] is famous of high in iron and silicon contents, featuring high plasticity, the glossier surface the more useages of brewing tea. Tea sets made from purple-clay is not normally glazed. A finished product is primarily purple, thus it is named. This pottery can be divided into different colors, such as purple-brown “purple clay” which is in amaranth or light purple; gray-yellow “green clay” in gray or gray-blue; vermeil “red clay” in red-brown. Purple-clay tea set has a long history in China. Su Shi, the great scholar of the Song Dynasty, had designed a pot with handle, called “Dongpo Pot with Loop Handle”. In the Ming Dynasty, making loose tea in a small pot was popular, which led to the development of purple-clay pots.
