Some customers want me to give away the rope after they buy the teapot, but many times I don’t prepare the rope. It’s not that I can’t bear to say how much a rope is worth, but I think it’s unnecessary after I try it myself. Search the Internet for a few yuan for a string.
When I first came into contact with purple pottery, I also tied the rope to my first pot. The reason is that I saw some experience taught by purple clay teapots about how to tie the strings on teapots, so I believed them and tried.
But my first pot was destroyed on that rope!
It’s not a good idea to connect the handle and lid with a rope. At least my own experience is very bad.
The biggest disadvantage is that it is easy to bump.
With the rope on, it’s easy to touch the lid of the pot, whether it’s to open the lid to put tea, pour water, or remove the lid after the soup is put aside, so that the pot cover can easily touch the pot body after the tea event. The reason is that the rope is not long, so the lid can only be close to the teapot after being tied, which greatly reduces the flexibility. If you move a little bit more, you will bump.
In fact, the purpose of protecting the teapot is to tie the rope to the teapot. If the lid is not detached from the body, the risk of falling and falling is reduced. However, the risk of falling is reduced, but the risk of bumping is increased. What should I do?
The ancients said that the two evils should be the lesser. Since both methods have certain disadvantages, choose the one with the least disadvantages.
According to the actual use of teapots, the possibility of teapot lid falling down is very low. After the soup comes out, the lid of the pot will generally be placed on the tea towel or special cover, which will rarely fall on the ground and break. The probability of collision is greatly increased when the kettle rope is tied.
Therefore, it is better not to tie the rope.
