Introduction to the history of celadon tea sets: the flower of porcelain, rare and precious



As early as the Eastern Han Dynasty, the production of pure, transparent and luminous celadon began. In the Jin Dynasty, the Yue kilns, Wu kilns and Ou kilns in Zhejiang had reached considerable scale. In the Song Dynasty, the celadon tea sets produced by the Ge Kiln in Longquan, Zhejiang, one of the five famous kilns at that time, had reached their peak and were sold far away.

The porcelain industry in the Tang Dynasty has become an independent department. The poet Lu Guimeng of the Tang Dynasty once praised celadon with the famous line "the wind and dew of nine autumns bloom over the kiln and capture the green color of thousands of peaks". Celadon is "as green as jade, as bright as a mirror, and as loud as a chime". It is called the "flower of porcelain" and is rare and valuable.

It can be seen that "zhou" The name "ship" has existed since ancient times.



In the Song Dynasty, tea cups were popular for drinking tea, and the use of cup holders was also more common. The tea cup, also known as the tea cup, is actually a small tea bowl, which is conducive to bringing out and maintaining the aroma and taste of the tea, which is in line with scientific principles. If the tea cup is too large, not only will the fragrance be easily dispersed, but also a lot of boiling water will be injected, which will carry a large amount of heat and easily burn the tea leaves, causing the tea soup to lose its freshness.
