Passage--The lacquerware • Chinese lacquerware is a famous traditional handcraft in China. It’s entirely hand-made with wonderful workmanship, having its own elegance and beauty. It’ s handy. Besides, it’s heat-resistant and waterproof. Its beautiful coloring will look fresher and fresher as time passes. There are two kinds of lacquerware. One is bodiless silk-lacquer, and the other is wooden-cored lacquerware. The silk-lacquer is made by gluing silk on the mold. The best liquid lacquer is used next. It is applied repeatedly, layer upon layer. After repeated applications, it’s dried and polished carefully. As soon as the article is smooth and strong enough, the mold is taken away, leaving the outer covering intact. The wooden-cored lacquerware undergoes almost the same process of repeated varnishing. The core is made of valuable wood which is cut into a mold as the core. The best-known lacquerware, which is produced in the Fujian Province, is characterized by its heat, acid and alkali resistant properties. • Glue silk on the mold; The best liquid lacquer is then used, applied repeatedly, layer upon layer; dried and carefully polished. • As soon as the article is smooth and strong enough, the mold is taken away, leaving the outer covering intact. • The core is made of valuable wood which is cut into a mold as the core.

'' Tea steeped from green tea leaves is jade green to yellow-green in color, and gives off the fragrance of fresh vegetables. Examples of green tea are ``Dragon Well'' ( Lung-ching) and ``Green Snail Spring'' ( Pi-lo-ch'un). The Chinese call tea that undergoes full fermentation ``red tea'' ( hong-ch'a); in the West it is known as ``black tea. '' Tea made from black tea leaves is reddish-brown in color and has a malt-like aroma. The best brands of black tea are Qihong of Anhui , Dianhong of Yunnan, Suhong of Jiangsu, Chuanhong of Sichuan and Huhong of Hunan. Oolong, or ``Black Dragon'' ( Wu-Lung) tea is an example of a partially-fermented tea. This tea is unique to China, and Fujian is one of its most representative areas of production. Oolong tea comes in three degrees of fermentation: lightly fermented, moderately fermented, and fully fermented. The identifying features of lightly fermented Oolong tea, such as Paochung , are a full aroma, clarity, and a golden color. Moderately fermented types such as ``Iron Buddha'' ( T'ie-kuan-yin), ``Narcissus'' ( Shui-hsien), and ``Frozen Peak'' ( Tung-ting), have a brown color, a full ``mature'' flavor that appeals more to the sense of taste than that of smell, and a vaguely sweet aftertaste. Tea infused from moderately to heavily fermented tea leaves like ``White Hair'' Oolong ( Pai-hao Wu-lung) has a red-orange color and a fruity aroma.
