"A silver pot is the most valuable for boiling water, and a silver pot for making tea."
Boiling water in a silver pot can make the water soft and smooth, bringing a better taste.
"Ruo silk water" means that the water boiled in a silver pot is like silk, soft and smooth, with a more tea flavor and a long taste.
Lotus, the gentleman of flowers.
Zhou Dunyi once praised the lotus: "I love the lotus when it comes out of the mud without being stained, and it is clean without being demonic."
The lotus flower is clean and free from pollution, and has been favored by literati since ancient times.
Each handmade silver teapot is a precious teaware, but also an exquisite work of art. The lotus flower and silverware are skillfully combined to make an elegant teaware, and placed on the tea table, it forms a beautiful scenery by itself.
Today, Tongxinshe Teahouse recommended Mr. Hong Jike, an inheritor of intangible cultural heritage, to design and build a series of silver teaware with silver as the medium and lotus as the theme.
The "Lian Yu" pot for boiling water and making tea is made by Mr. Hong Jike himself. It is packaged in a gift box, and a certificate of Mr. Hong Jike's collection is attached to the order.

In Buddhist culture, the lotus is a flower full of Zen.
The Buddhist scriptures can be called the "Lotus Sutra", the Buddhist country is also called the "Lotus Realm", the Buddhist seat is called the "Lotus Seat" or "Liantai", the Buddhist temple is called "Lian Yu", the monk's house is called "Lotus House", and the cassock is called "Lotus Clothes". The history of the traditional Chinese lotus pattern can be traced back to the Yangshao culture period or even earlier, and it is a classic decorative pattern with a long history in my country.
The lotus patterns before the Wei, Jin, Southern and Northern Dynasties were relatively simple; with the introduction of Buddhist lotus patterns, the Sui and Tang Dynasties were represented by Baoxiang patterns and twining lotus patterns, which were rich and luxurious; during the Song and Yuan Dynasties, with the improvement of social production levels, at this time In addition to the lotus pattern on porcelain, it is also widely used in painting, textiles, etc. However, in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the lotus pattern not only gradually became brighter in color, but also began to be bold and exaggerated. "Pictures must be intentional, meaning must be "Auspicious" has also become mainstream.
The lotus has also been endowed with many beautiful meanings accordingly.
A lotus flower symbolizes cleanliness, double lotus flower symbolizes the love of husband and wife, lotus flower and carp imply "more than one year after another, rich every year".
There are two types of pots for boiling water and tea making, which are rare in Mr. Hong's pot-making career.
The body of the pot is designed as a tall barrel, which is very delicate overall.
The pot body is engraved with lotus petal patterns, which are symmetrical from left to right, up and down. From the bottom to the top, it looks like a large piece of lotus petals, which stand upright and wrap the whole body of the pot. It is an inverted short petal, which echoes up and down, forming a symmetrical and orderly aesthetic experience.
It can be used as two kinds of practical scene pots for boiling water and making tea pots, and it has become an indispensable beauty in the tea banquet. The double-circle turning is used as the shoulder of the pot, and the curve is moderate. The blades of grass are curled and continuous. The combination of lotus and cattail grass symbolizes "one product is clean and honest".
The lid of the pot covers the pot in the shape of a lotus leaf. The curved and smooth lotus mouth gives the whole pot a natural and dynamic aesthetic feeling. The pot button is inlaid with three-dimensional lotus flowers made of agate material. A sense of nobility and sophistication, the high-curved beam handle is treated with metal heat-insulation connection, the upper and lower proportions are appropriate, harmonious and beautiful, and the bottom is closed, engraved with "Hong Jike" system, which is also a symbol of the status of this pot.
The whole body of the pot is treated with silver-smoked anti-oxidation treatment, which retains the metal texture and adds a sense of dignity. The built-in long-hole filter outlet is used to boil water and tea, and the soup is made quickly, which is easy to use.
The delivery is accompanied by a collection certificate of Mr. Hong Jike, and the delivery is packed in a gift box.
