The glass tea set is a tea ware made of glass. The glass texture is hard, brittle and transparent, and its main components are silica, calcium oxide, and sodium oxide. It is mixed with quartz sand, limestone, soda ash, etc., and then melted, formed, and cooled at a high temperature. Glass tea sets are mostly cups, plates, bottles, as a tea liquor container and water storage device. The glassware is transparent and can be directly viewed from the soup and the bottom of the cup.  
Before the Qing Dynasty, China called glaze as glass. The two names were separated in the Qing Dynasty. As one of the five famous Chinese instruments, glaze is also one of the seven treasures of Buddhism. From the point of view of modern science, the main component of glaze and glass are silica, but there are differences in materials due to different processing methods. The history of firing glassware is very early. For example, glaze beads were unearthed from the Tomb of the Warring States in Hui County, Henan Province, indicating that glaze products have a long history. The ancient glass tea set is a precious thing. Due to the high price of ancient glass, it is often based on the production of art, only a small amount of tea sets, so there are not many left.

Glass, the ancients called it glaze, although China's glass production technology started earlier, but until the Tang Dynasty, with the increase of Chinese and foreign cultural exchanges, the continuous introduction of Western glassware, China began to make glass tea sets. Modern times, with the rise of the glass industry, glass tea sets are rapidly emerging. This is because the glass has a transparent texture, a lustrous color and a large plasticity. Therefore, the tea sets made of the same have various forms and are widely used, and the price is low, easy to buy, and praised by tea drinking people. Among the many glass tea sets, glass cups are the most common, and it is also best to brew green tea, the color of the tea in the cup, the color of the tea leaves, and the ups and downs of the tea during the brewing process.
