Gaiwancha, a traditional tea drinking custom among people in Sichuan and other Chinese places

Gaiwancha, a traditional tea drinking custom among people in Sichuan and other places. It is a tea set with a lid on the top, a tray on the bottom, and a bowl in the middle. Also known as “Sancai bowl”, the cover is heaven, the tray is earth, and the bowl is human. The taste of Gaiwan tea is endless. Put the tea lid in the bowl. If you want the tea soup to be thicker, use the tea lid to gently scrape on the surface of the water to turn the whole bowl of tea up and down. Light scraping will make it lighter and heavy scraping will make it thicker. Some people who know the tea ceremony are good at tasting tea. They believe that if the tea is not clear, it is ordinary tea. Fragrant, not sweet, is bitter. If it is sweet and not alive, it cannot be called superior tea. It is only fresh and refreshing. The live tea is the best tea.
Gaiwancha is popular in the Qing Dynasty (Beijing). Everyone, the nobility, the royal court, and the elegant tea house, all re-bowl tea. Gaiwancha is suitable for keeping warm, so it became popular everywhere.
