Metalware is one of the oldest appliances in China. It is made of metal materials such as gold, silver, copper, iron and tin. Before Emperor Qin Shihuang unified China, bronzes and other applications have been widely used. They are used as Chinese wine utensils, as well as for tea and water, until the tea becomes a drink, and the tea set is gradually separated.

For example, you can see the long-mouthed copper pot in the tea house in Sichuan. China had bronzes three thousand years ago but it was rarely used because of the rust and damage taste of teas.In 1994, Shanghai made a large copper teapot with a capacity of 2000 liters, a height of 2.0 meters and a diameter of 1.8 meters.

Gold and silver tea set: According to the classification of texture, the silver tea set is made by silver and the golden tea set is made by gold. Gold and silver are ductile, corrosion-resistant, and have beautiful colors and luster.
