陸羽風爐組
LuYu Tea Brazier


陸羽風爐形體是運用唐朝《陸羽茶經‧四之器》一篇描述的風爐形體,
結合現代茶道具功能而設計。
The style of LuYu tea brazier is based on the one which is described in
“Lu Yu’s Tea Classic, in the fourth chapter Utensils”
 during the Tang Dynasty.Its design also combines the function of modern tea ware.


風爐象古鼎形,三足分別云:坎上巽下離於中(坎象徵水,巽象徵風,離象徵火。
那麼水在上面煮,風從底下送,而火在中間燃燒。這句是用來表示風爐的作用。);
體均五行去百疾(風爐煮出來的茶,是包含了金、木、水、火、土等的五種元素,
喝了以後,可使身體五行的循環均衡,百病不生);二○一○陸羽起造。

The brazier is shaped like an ancient Chinese three -footed cooking vessel;
 each foot has a Chinese character: “Kan on the top, Xun at the bottom,and Li in
the center;” (“坎Kan,” “巽Xun,” and “離Li” are three signs of
the 八卦Eight Trigrams. “Kan” symbolizes Water; “Xun” symbolizes Wind,
and “Li” symbolizes Fire.  Therefore, there is water boiling on the top,
wind blowing through at the bottom, and fire burning in the center.
This sentence describes the function of the brazier.) “The body well
imbued with the Five Elements is with the intensions to get rid of all
ailments;” (The tea made by this brazier contains five elements
 in Nature: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.  Drinking this tea can
 balance the circle of five elements in the human body, which allows people
 to purge disease.)  “Starting production in 2010 by Lu Yu.” 


設三窗:窗上分別書約:「伊公」「羹陸」「氏茶」,即茶神陸羽之
理想抱負-「伊公羹,陸氏茶」也。

It has three vents; also, there are some words written on each vents:
“Yi Gong,” “Geng Lu,” “Shih Cha.”  These words represent the ideal
aspiration of the tea sage Lu Yu ---“Yi Gong’s delicacy, Lu Yu’s essence”.

燒水壺形引用明朝時大彬製造的器型,改為軟耳(活絡)提樑,增高壺把
與壺蓋之間距,以方便使用,造形古樸,運用古代二器形結合,
以為尊古法而創新用,增益品茗之雅趣。

The shape of the kettle is according to the one made by Shih Dabin, a famous
 potter during the Ming Dynasty.  The loop handle is changed to a flexible kind,
which can increase the space between the handle and the cover,
 so it is easier to be used.The form is very simple. This application
of two ancient shapes shows the value of traditional way and creates
a new spirit; it also increases the graceful fun of tea’s taste.

It is recommend only adding 70~80% (900~1000cc) water in the kettle, to avoid overflowing of the hot water when boiling.
