Water is the mother of tea

Whether it is tea planting or tea brewing, water plays an irreplaceable role. Lu Yu, wrote in his "The Classic of Tea" that "tea as a drink originated from the Shennong" and has a history of more than 5,000 years. China has already become the country with the largest tea production and consumption in the world. Coupled with the rapid rise of the post-80s and post-90s who pursue a higher quality of life, tea culture has gradually formed a social way of being close to circle culture.

Invention made unprecedented development of the ceramic industry—the Song Dynasty appraised the "Five Famous Kilns" as Ding, Ru, Guan, Ge, and Jun Kilns. Among them, Longquan Celadon, Jianyang Zhan, and Jingdezhen Ceramics can be said to be famous in ancient and modern times, shocking both inside and outside ( According to available literature).
