Since I came to live in Europe, I discovered a cruel reality, that is black tea and its accessories occupy the main market in shopping malls and supermarkets, while green tea, representing the true essence of tea culture, does not account for the mainstream market (although there have been quite a number of people like to drink green tea in the west).
Green tea tea represents not only the tea culture, but is healthier than its competitor coffee, or even black tea, its own kind. So I think we should find a kind of product which can better promote green tea, and let the world understand the culture of tea, and let more people understand and accept the healthy drink. Teapot is the best product for that. 
The formation of the dewdrop is a process of accumulation, where in it will absorb moisture and grows gradually.Just like the tea-making process of my teapot. It also gives me the inspiration about the aesthetics of the teapot.
