Before talking about how to maintain the purple pottery cup, I would like to share my views on the selection of cup color.
From the perspective of tea experience, I think the white purple pottery cup is better. There are two advantages: first, the white cup can see the color of the tea soup; secondly, the white cup does not feel hot as the black or red cup.
But from the characteristics of purple pottery, I don’t think color is the most important factor. Each color with careful decoration has its own style and can give people a unique feeling.
The black cup is decorated with classic scraps or traditional calligraphy and painting. It is simple, reserved, thick and full of cultural charm, which is more suitable for the tea ceremony.
Red and white cups will be more distinctive in decoration and more modern; nowadays, some young artists create purple pottery cups, which are full of elements of youth and fashion.
How to maintain the purple pottery cup?
Purple pottery cup or other pottery cup, the biggest enemy is tea scale. Because purple pottery belongs to one of the pottery, the body is ventilated to varying degrees, and has certain adsorption and relatively rough. If you don’t pay attention to cleaning, it will take a long time to accumulate tea scale, which is difficult to clean, which will not only affect the beauty of the cup, but also harm health. Especially white cups, they can be ugly.
Therefore, in the use process, should develop a better cleaning habits. After each tea event, clean the inside and outside of the cup as soon as possible, and wipe off the water drops to avoid leaving watermarks.
As for how you care about how to keep the cup as moist as a teapot, I don’t think it’s necessary to deliberately rub it to make the effect. In fact, each tea event, a number of times to pick up and put down, a long time, the surface of the cup naturally become smooth. This kind of natural cultivation, I think, is more meaningful.
Finally, to maintain the cup, but also pay attention to prevent falling. Not only in the process of tea to avoid bumping, but also to prevent innocent children to break the cup.
