Tea set for green tea
Green tea is very popular in China, especially in Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces. Most people like Longjing, Biluochun and other famous and high quality teas. When drinking tea, they are also very particular about the cleanliness of the tea set and the quality of the water.
As a popular drink, the way of drinking green tea varies with the quality of tea and differences in regions, and there are many kinds and characteristics.
We drink popular green tea and pay attention to the taste of the tea. We can choose a pot, cup or bowl with a lid to make tea; teapots are usually purple clay pots or porcelain pots. Before making tea, wash the teapot and cups.
Brewing tea in a teapot is suitable for medium and low-grade green teas. This type of tea contains polycellulose, which is difficult to brew and has a strong taste, so teapot brewing is generally not suitable for delicate teas because there is too much water in the teapot, which is difficult to cool. It will steam the tea and make it lose its fresh fragrance.
The steps of making tea are as follows: put an appropriate amount of tea in the pot, the amount depends on the size of the pot and the habits of different people, then pour boiling water of 90 to 100°C into the pot, cover the pot and drink the tea after 3 to 5 minutes.
Generally speaking, it is common etiquette for people of all ethnic groups in China to invite guests to drink tea. At this time, tea cups are generally used to make tea more formal, but low-grade tea is more suitable for teapot tea, which is not only convenient for separating tea soup from tea residue, but also convenient for drinking. In addition, when there are many people drinking tea, it is better to make tea in a teapot, because the purpose is not to taste the flavour of tea, but to quench thirst.
