Bamboo is a symbol of old age and modesty. Bamboo is also seen as the ideal gentleman, who bends before the winds of change, but never abandons his ideals, just as bamboo is bent low by strong winds, but does not break. Like bamboo, the gentleman regains his upright position as soon as the storm has passed.
|Choosing a Teapot. Teapots come in different sizes and are made from different materials. The amount of tea you?™re making and the quality of the tea dictate its size. The type of tea you?™re making dictate the material the teapot is made from.
Teapot Material. Teapots are made from red clay, black clay, or porcelain. Different types of tea are made better in one of these types of teapots. Porcelain teapots are good for making light colored tea such as green tea, jasmine tea, or flavored tea. Red clay teapots are good for making light to medium colored tea such as green tea, jasmine tea, flavored tea, or oolong tea. Black clay teapots are good for making darker colored tea such as black tea (British tea), pu-erh tea, or dark oolong tea.
Teapot Size. Teapots come in a multitude of sizes from very small to large. The smallest size is used when only 1 or 2 people are drinking tea, or when the tea is very expensive. This is because by using a smaller teapot, you will only be using a little tea. A teapot should be able to make enough tea in each batch for each person who is drinking tea. Remember that Chinese teacups are very small, so a serving is usually small. As soon as the tea is served, more water can be added to make the next batch.
