"3 Things to Avoid to Cultivate Jianzhan's Seven-Color Light"

Caring for Jianzhan is one of the pleasures that Jianzhan brings to tea lovers, and many Jianzhan enthusiasts are striving to cultivate the dazzling "seven-color light" of Jianzhan. Recently, many people have been asking online: which Jianzhan is easier to care for? How can we cultivate the seven-color light? When asking these questions, we should first understand the "three things to avoid" in Jianzhan. So, what are the "three things to avoid" in Jianzhan? Let's find out together below!

"Do not be thrifty."

To cultivate a dazzling "rainbow aura," there is a crucial step that cannot be skipped, which is the selection of the teapot.

There is a saying that the vast majority of rabbit fur and a small percentage of oil drop teapots cannot be cultivated to exhibit the desired "rainbow aura." These teapots are difficult to cultivate and it is not easy to bring out their brilliance, but that does not mean it is impossible. Generally speaking, teapots that have formed a vitrified protective layer and have a good mirror effect are harder to cultivate to exhibit the "rainbow aura." If we want to cultivate the "rainbow aura" in a short time, we can choose glaze colors with active crystal expression, such as some oil drop teapots that have crystal texture and active expression, which are easier to bring out the brilliance. In short, we can choose teapots with moderate vitrification. Teapots with weak vitrification or that have been over-fired cannot exhibit the "rainbow aura" and may even turn rusty over time, while teapots with excessive vitrification have slow tea absorption and are more difficult to cultivate. Teapots with active crystals can be felt to be uneven on the glaze surface by hand and can be seen to have crystal formations under a magnifying glass, which are better choices.

Therefore, if the teapot selected at the beginning is difficult to cultivate or cannot be cultivated to exhibit the desired brilliance, even if one puts a lot of effort into the cultivation process, it will still be difficult to bring out the desired brilliance. However, as the teapot is cultivated over time, it will become more smooth and full of vitality.

Don't rush.

"Cultivating a teapot" requires patience; otherwise, one will end up doing twice the work for half the result. For example, some friends like the "lazy teapot cultivation" method, which is to neglect cleaning the teapot while trying to cultivate it. Over time, this approach will only "harm" your precious teapot. If you cultivate a teapot in this way for a long time, not only will the glaze surface of the teapot become drier and duller, but the crystals will also gradually lose their luster.

The glaze surface of the inner wall of the teapot has obvious tea stains and the color of the teapot is dull. We should clean the teapot promptly after drinking tea, preferably using a dedicated tea cloth to wipe it dry and let it air dry. Secondly, the teapot also needs rest time. Using the teapot intermittently will yield better results. We can select several teapots to use alternately, which will allow the glaze surface of the teapot to dry thoroughly and facilitate cultivation. Therefore, there is no need to rush when cultivating a teapot.

Don't waste

Some teapot enthusiasts believe that not washing the teapot after drinking tea or directly leaving the teapot soaking in the tea soup will make it easier to bring out its brilliance. However, this is completely wrong. After each use, the teapot must not have any leftover tea inside, and keeping it clean is the key to cultivating the teapot.

Although the teapot has the function of preserving tea and preventing corrosion, leaving tea overnight is still very damaging to the teapot itself. Moreover, it is very unhygienic to do so for a long time, which is also harmful to the body. Therefore, it is important to use the teapot frequently for drinking tea and keep it clean by cleaning and wiping it regularly. After drinking the last cup of tea each day, rinse the teapot with hot water and then wash it thoroughly as usual. Then, let the teapot air dry in a well-ventilated area.
