The Chaozhou Zi Sha water boiling kettle is a robust and versatile vessel, with a generous capacity of around 860ml, perfect for those who enjoy the traditional methods of tea brewing. Made from Zi Sha, also known as Pottery Sand, this kettle is valued for its durability and the unique way it can enhance the taste of water and, consequently, the tea.
The kettle's dimensions of L25 * W12 * H12cm make it an ideal size for various heating sources, from a gas stove, wood fire, or charcoal fire, to an alcohol lamp or electrical stove. Its ability to be heated directly makes it a great addition to any tea ceremony, both indoors and out.
Before you indulge in its usage, it is essential to immerse the kettle in cold water for 24 hours. This initial soaking is crucial for preparing the Zi Sha kettle after its creation, ensuring the interior is clean and ready for your tea-making needs.
This Chaozhou Zi Sha kettle is designed for a gradual heating process. It is recommended to avoid quick heating and cooling as these extremes can harm the kettle's structure, potentially leading to cracks or breakage. Additionally, slight seepage may occur over time, a natural characteristic of the sand mud material, which should not be a concern as it does not impact the kettle's function.
With its traditional design and modern functionality, the Chaozhou Zi Sha water boiling kettle is an ideal companion for both novice and seasoned tea drinkers who appreciate the age-old tradition of tea brewing.
