The ancients recommend using a silver teapot with boiled water. The purer the water, the better. If the water is not right, the silver tea set will change color. Since early history, the silversmiths used handles made of vines because the heat transfer of silver is relatively fast, and the silver tea set can save time to boil water in it.
The silver teapot produces softer water quality than the iron tea set, and the tea has more aroma and purity. The silver and sodium ions released by the silver teapot when used for boiling water have a disinfecting effect.
Silver ion sodium ions released by silver teapots can play a disinfecting role. A minimal amount of silver is dissolved in water as silver ions.
Silver ion sterilization, silver ions per liter of water if it contains one hundred billion one-half gram, is enough to make most bacteria die. Silver tea sets with boiled water can make the water soft and thin. The ancients said that if the water is soft, it is as smooth as silk. Pure silver does not rust, and will not let the tea be contaminated with odor.
