In Asia when we have good tea, we do not say drink tea , we say taste the tea instead. You don't use big cups , you do not swallow. You sip like you sip your wine to feel the aroma and after taste that the tea brings. This is a great set include everything you need, simply use them or put out as a decorative display in your cabinet would be nice.Known by the design as the Three Friends of Winter, they entered the conventions of East Asian culture. As you can see there are three kinds of plants on this teapot. There are bamboo, plum flower and pine tree. The Chinese observed that the pine, bamboo and plum do not wither as the cold days deepen into the winter season unlike many other plants. Together they symbolize steadfastness, perseverance, and resilience. They are highly regarded in Confucianism and as such represent the scholar-gentleman's ideal. This will be a perfect gift to the elder and Asian culture background friend. What better way to reflect on your mind than with a cup of tea?
