Tin tea pot is a tea pot made from tin as the main raw material. It first appeared in China during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.
As early as in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, tin tea pots produced by Shishi folk tin carving shops were well-known. Tin tea pots are made from raw tin containing 85% tin. Cans are decorated with hand-crafted techniques. The contents of the decoration include Yunlong, Feifeng, wormfish and various flowers. Most of the words on the cans are "Fu", "Shou" and "Daiji".
The high-end tea cans in the market are mainly tin cans. In ancient times, people like to use tin to purify the water to make the taste more sweet. Tin is non-toxic and harmless to the human body. In general, metals have a kind of so-called metallic taste, but tin does not appear to be a good thing. The tea cans made of tin have better sealing performance than others because of their own material, and because the can body is relatively thick, the can neck is high, the temperature is constant, and the preservation function is even better. Good tea needs good tea cans for storage, especially delicate green tea. The requirements for freshness are higher. If bad tea cans are used, the nutrition and taste will be lost and they will be easily degenerated. For good tea, it must be said that it is a waste. This is something that people who love tea cannot tolerate.
