The celadon tea set started in the Jin Dynasty. At that time, the most popular type of tea pots called “chicken head flow”.

After the Six Dynasties, many celadon tea sets have lotus pattern. The teapot of the Tang Dynasty was also called “tea note”. The mouth of the pot was called “Liu Zi”, which was short in form and replaced the chicken head of Jin Shi.

Celadon tea sets are thin and strong, with beautiful shapes, full of glazed layers, and jade texture; quiet color, there are pink, green, gray green, crab green, etc. Among them, pink green is the most famous.

There are various patterns on the glaze: “cultural and martial arts” with size, “caviar patterns” like thin eyes, “white jumping” like ice -like, “crab claw pattern”, “bull blood pattern”, “beef hair pattern” and so on Essence


Celadon tea set is the most precious of Zhejiang Longquan Ge Kiln. So far many museums in the world have collections. During the heyday of Zhejiang Longquan Kiln, one of the five famous kiln in the Song Dynasty, produced various celadon, including teapots, tea bowls, tea cups, tea cups, etc.

In the Ming Dynasty, the celadon tea set of Longquan Ge Kiln was more delicate in its texture, dignified shape, glazed, and elegant and elegant.


The celadon tea utensils are used to brew green tea because of the color, which shows the beauty of soup. However, using celadon tea sets to brew black tea, white tea, yellow tea, and black tea, it is easy to make the tea soup lose its original face.

White porcelain tea set

The firing of white porcelain began in the Northern Qi Dynasty in the 6th century. After the Sui Dynasty unified the six kingdoms, in addition to inheriting the celadon in the Northern Dynasty, porcelain production was successfully fired.

By the Tang Dynasty, Bai Porcelain had matured. In addition to meeting the demand for domestic markets, it was exported to foreign countries.

The wind of drinking tea in the Tang Dynasty has greatly promoted the production and development of white porcelain tea sets. At that time, the white porcelain and Yue kiln celadon in Xing Kiln represented the two major porcelain kiln systems in the North and South.

The white porcelain tea utensils are white and white, with different shapes, and can reflect the color of the tea soup, the heat transfer and thermal insulation performance, which can be called the treasure of tea drinking utensils.

Today, white porcelain is new, suitable for brewing various types of tea. In addition, the white porcelain tea set is exquisite in shape, elegant decoration, and has artistic appreciation value, so it is most commonly used.

The current white porcelain tea utensils are the most famous in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi.


Blue and white porcelain tea set


Blue and white porcelain began in the Tang Dynasty. It was not until the middle and late Yuan Dynasty that it started production. It was flourished in the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties. It was the mainstream of tea sets at that time.

The high level of painting technology of blue and white porcelain tea sets, especially the use of traditional Chinese painting techniques on porcelain, can be said to be a major achievement of painting in the Yuan Dynasty.

During the Qing Dynasty, especially in the period of Kangxi, Yongzheng, and Qianlong, blue and white porcelain tea sets entered a historical peak, especially the blue and white porcelain tools fired during the Kangxi reign.


The blue and white porcelain tea set is blue and white, and the color is elegant and quiet, never faded, and has the power of gorgeousness. The blue and white porcelain produced in Jingdezhen, Jiangxi, known as the “Porcelain Capital” has become the representative of porcelain in the Yuan Dynasty.

Black porcelain tea set

Black porcelain is also known as Tianmu Porcelain, which is one of the common glazed colors in common utensils.

Black porcelain tea sets began in the late Tang Dynasty.

Since the beginning of the Song Dynasty, the wind of tea has created conditions for the rise of black porcelain tea sets.

The effect of measuring tea in the Song Dynasty, seeing the color and uniformity of the tea soup soup, the second look at the soup flowers and the tea cups. The black porcelain tea set, as Zhu Mu said in the Song Dynasty, said that “tea is white, into black cups, and its traces are easy to verify”, which is easy to set off the color of the tea soup. After the tea cup can be insulated, it is conducive to the maintenance of the temperature of the tea soup.

Due to popular tea in the Song Dynasty, black cups became the most widely used variety in porcelain tea sets at that time. After the Ming Dynasty, the tea method gradually became popular, and the black porcelain tea set gradually declined.

After watching so many porcelain tea sets, I couldn’t help sighing the exquisite craftsmanship of the ancients, and it was still impressed. Now maybe there is no ancient tea drinking style, but in leisure, taking a porcelain cup and making a cup of tea can also taste the ancient people.
