With the established vogue of consuming loose-leaf teas, an array of new forms were introduced in the imperial porcelain repertoire. Tea boat, also known as tea plates, were small curved-shaped vessels used to hold tea leaves. It allowed for the tea consumer to appreciate the tea leaves prior to its brew.

The present tea boat belongs to a group of turquoise-ground enamelled porcelain wares made to imitate cloisonné enamel, a fascination started by the Qianlong Emperor and continued in the Jiaqing period. Such wares may have been commissioned in sets, as related tea wares of different forms were known.

隨着散茶引入及沖泡文化發展,御窰瓷品漸見相關造型及茶具。茶船,亦稱茶荷,乃用於放置茶葉,讓品茗者能在沖泡前先觀賞茶葉外觀。

乾隆之時,弘曆對銅胎掐絲琺瑯器尤為鍾愛,除大規模製作外,嘗下命以瓷仿傚。及至嘉慶時期仍有出品,本品當屬其中。畫師在本品上以描金勾勒,妙仿景泰藍上之鎏金銅絲,流麗線條,對比鮮明,賞心悅目。相關茶具亦有見於其他造型,可見此等茶具或曾成組燒造。參見一清嘉慶粉彩松石綠地福壽延年茶壺,兩度售於蘇富比,第一次於倫敦2008年5月14日,編號717,第二次於香港2015年10月7日,編號3716。同可比較一茶壺例,售於香港佳士得1999年11月2日,編號572。
