Tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world and is enjoyed by people of all ages and cultures. But did you know that the type of tea set you use
can make a big difference in the taste of your tea?
How good a tea is can be determined by several factors such as the tea leaf quality, water temperature, water volume, and steeping time, to name a few.
That said, it’s easy to neglect the significant role of the tea set in the brewing process. A good tea set is not simply a medium but will bring out the best
characteristics of the tea in color, aroma, taste, and briskness.
The most used materials for tea sets are porcelain, pottery, glass, enamel, metal, and bamboo. In professional tea cupping competitions, porcelain
teaware is most widely used globally to evaluate tea. If you are serious about brewing the perfect cup of tea, then you should invest in a porcelain tea set.
It’s the best way to ensure that you are getting the most out of your tea leaves. And for good reason:
1. Porcelain is non-porous
Being non-porous means it does not absorb the flavor of the tea. This allows the true tea flavor to shine through. The non-porous surface also prevents tea
stains and odors from remaining in the cup that can interfere with the flavor of the tea.
2. Porcelain is heat-retentive
There’s nothing worse than looking forward to a hot cup of tea only to be disappointed by a cold reception. Porcelain tea sets are good at retaining heat,
ensuring that your tea will stay hot for longer.
3. Porcelain tea sets are very durable
This one’s for keeps! What better comfort than having a trusty tea set that can be used over and over again without losing its shape or quality?
4. Porcelain tea sets are beautiful
They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, so you’re sure to find the perfect set to your liking that matches your décor.
