Friends who like purple sand must have heard the saying "If you don't have a pear style in your hand, you can't talk about it". This sentence firstly reflects the popularity of the pear-style pot, and secondly reflects its practicality.
The pear shape is shaped like a fruit, which is elegant and interesting. It is used to make tea and is especially loved by tea drinkers. What I recommend to tea lovers today is a pear-style teapot - Lao Zhu Ni small flat pear purple clay teapot with a capacity of 110ml.
According to the "Illustrated Dictionary of Ancient Chinese Ceramics" edited by Mr. Feng Xianming: "The pear-style pot, one of the pot styles, began in the Yuan Dynasty and became popular in the Ming Dynasty. It was named because its shape resembles a pear." The whole pot is plump and elegant, small and exquisite. As the most classic pot style in the Mengchen series, the pear style has become an irreplaceable genre and style in Zhu Ni pots.
This pot is a standard pear style, and the overall shape is short and round. Sit like a pear, steady as a mountain, full and smooth. It has natural and unique advantages in condensing fragrance and gathering gas. The mouth is wide and the belly is large, which is quite similar to the early pear-style teapot in terms of style, scale and charm. The bead button is cute and playful, and the ring handle is generous and natural, making it easy to carry the pot. The three-bend flow faces the sky, the water flows out smoothly, and the water is cut off neatly. It is worth mentioning that this Lao Zhu Ni small flat pear purple clay teapot is especially suitable for brewing oolong. Because Gongfu tea "should be small rather than large, short rather than tall".
This flat pear pot has a more interesting shape than the plain one, but it is not as complicated and gorgeous as the flower pot. It is nothing more than endearing. The so-called "no vermilion, no wrinkles", this batch of mud is very different from ordinary vermilion mud. After firing, the wrinkles become more ancient, and the color of the pot body is deep and ocher red. After a little soaking, the batter becomes beautiful.
