泡茶的壶最美 Brewing pot is always the best

喜欢那些紫砂一厂壶,双手握着把玩特别舒服,触觉肌理有柔软感,不是硬梆梆的。十多年前我们收了一支提壁壶,用来冲泡普洱,普洱是自己调配的,以渥堆普洱饼茶做基料,加少许下关青沱茶,投茶进壶倒热水,马上感觉到壶体袅袅冒热气,一下一下仿如做吐纳练功,看着它我们自然而然安静地等待茶浸泡。

伴着我们一起泡茶喝茶约半年后,最初未用时貌似粗糙石头的提壁壶,已悄然变得像块玉那么温润的样子了,它壶体的颗粒因有亮泽而均匀凸现,水色流丽,褐泥中常夹杂着飘忽不定的一抹银紫色,轻轻地触动了我们心灵特别柔软的那一瓣,叫做美。

我们一直使用一支一厂的掇球壶冲泡熟火乌龙茶,是红泥壶,但隐隐然乏黄色,泡茶久了,色泽变为更深沉的红,润亮。它烧结程度很高,传热也快,我们喜欢它泡出的茶汤风格:香味清醇高扬。

我们一直说:不要为养壶而买壶、为养壶而泡茶。一支壶只收藏着放在那边,没有人给它茶喝,没有人抚摸它、珍惜它,它永远就是一个物件而已。即使有用到它来泡茶,但中心点没有放在喝茶,那支茶壶也是不会有生命力和吸引力的。

茶壶是为喝茶而生的,把茶壶带回家后,我们要关心一下各茶壶的材质、烧造工艺、造型等身世来历,花些时间和它们做朋友,我们就会发现每一个壶都有适合它性质的茶。


I like those produce of clay pot byYixing Factory One. Their pots are particularly comfortable to fiddle with,and their touches are gentle for skin – without slight stiffness. Over ten years ago we collected an overhead pot to brew our self­blendingpuer, with Ripe Puer as part of our ingredients.Inserting slight portion of Xiaguan green tuo cha, pour in hot water and we would immediatelyitness hot air coming out of the pot. While observing the tea's evaporation­like hot air, we tranquilly waited for the tea to soak.

As we had been brewing and enjoying tea for half year or so, the overhead pot – which initially looked as rough as stone – was indeed secretively turning gentle as jade. Brightly and evenly displayed, the pot's granule were also presenting the teawater as if flashing silver purple colour irregularly – touching the gentlest part of our heart. This is what we called aesthetic.

When it comes to brewing oolong tea, we have been using a drop­ball pot produced by Yixing Factory One.Literally a red mud pot, the pot diffuses light yellowish colouration. As we brewed tea for quitesome time, it turned deeply but shiningly reddish. Greatly sintered, the pot transfers heat prettyquickly. And we particularly like the purely fragrant tea brewed by this pot.

As what we have been saying – do not buy a pot for the sake of nurturing a pot. Nor should webrew tea for the sake of nurturing our pot. If we ignore our teapot, leaving it running out of tea andour appreciation and treasure, it will remain an object – no longer a teapot in its true essence.

When we are brewing tea without a genuine purpose to enjoy tea, our teapot will not accumulateits own vitality and attraction.

Teapot is produced for brewing tea and our tea­drinking enjoyment. As we bring home a teapot,we shall figure out its materials and sintering art and shape. Spend some time and befriend ourteapot, we will realise evert pot does have a type of tea which suits it best.
