With the development of the times, the names of many items have changed greatly with the development of the times. So, what are the interesting names in ancient cups? Let's listen to Xiaobian today to explain to you.

In the Han and Tang Dynasties, the lacquer ware was replaced by porcelain, and the porcelain cup was no longer made into the oval shape of the ear cup, but round. This is because the porcelain is drawn on the wheeler and made into a round shape. Represented as the Xing Kiln tea bowl of the Tang Dynasty. At that time, the tea bowl was about 10 cm in diameter, which is much larger than today's teacup.

The most famous tea cup in the Tang Dynasty was the squatting. In order to prevent hot hands, a tray was added under the cup, which later evolved into today's bowl. In addition, the Tang Dynasty had a kind of shackles, which made the bottom of the foot very high, and played the role of a handle, also known as a high-footed cup.
In the Song Dynasty, tea was popular, and the tea was turned into a paste. It was placed in a tea pot, boiled in water, and then foamed with tea. Why do you have to take a cup of tea? At that time, there was a game that was popular all over the country. Fighting tea, several people gathered together to order tea, which was more than the white foam in the cup and lasted for a long time. Then the white tea foam, of course, is clearly set off by the black teacup, so the Song Dynasty is the most popular black teacup.
When using the brewing tea method, it is suitable for the white porcelain of the soup color, so the white porcelain in the kiln of the early Ming Dynasty is the most respected. But at that time, the kiln had stopped burning, and it was replaced by the tea cup of Jingdezhen kiln. The white glaze level of the Ming Dynasty kiln exceeded the kiln, and it was like a gelatin. It was called sweet white glaze by later generations.

In the Ming Dynasty, most of them were monochrome glazes. The bucket cup, like the bucket used in the past, is square, so it is called the bucket. In the past, there was no plaster mold. This kind of cup could not be formed by blanking. It was difficult to make it with the combination of mud sheets. The deformation rate during the firing process was also high and precious. There is also a square teapot called the bucket, but it is reversed.

The fair cup is different from ancient to modern. Nowadays, the shape of the fair cup is changeable, and there is a duck-shaped flow that is used for tea. Tea is always too thick in the pot, so when it is soaked, pour it into the fair cup and then into the cup. There was a small man in the fair cup of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, which contained a clever organ. When the wine was poured, the wine was completely leaked out. This will ensure that everyone drinks as much wine, so the name is fair.
The tendency of the teacup to become smaller became more apparent in the Qing Dynasty, the teacup was smaller, and the teapot was smaller. The strange thing is that China's porcelain cup has not been put. It’s not that the porcelain workers can’t make the handles. It’s estimated that they didn’t think about it. The mugs that were put in were introduced to China in the late Qing Dynasty.

In modern times, there are many kinds of cups, such as paper cups, glasses, stainless steel cups, etc., especially paper cups are the most widely used.
