Four Treasures of Chinese Tea

It is well known to all about the "scholar's four jewels", namely, writing brush, ink stick, ink slab and rice paper, while few have a little bit knowledge of the four trassures of Chinese tea, Here I'd like to share with you such kind of knowledge, and if you want to get more detailed information, you can see Onlinechinatours:

Yushuwei, a kettle which is used for boiling water, usually in reddish brown and the volumn is around 250 ml.


A carefully decorated one, on which there is a dragon, maybe it is a royal facility in the past.

Chaoshan stove, applying for boiling water, usually takes charcoal as the fuel, the firepower can be controlled through changing the inflow of wind.
