If you wish to brew your loose leaf Chinese tea the right way, then do it the Gong Fu Way!
Gong Fu translates as 'right effort.' Gong Fu Cha is putting forth our best effort to get the best flavor from the tea leaves.
You may compare the resulting cup of tea to an espresso. By contrast, western tea brewing methods create something like an americano — a big cup of coffee.
With a small infuser, tea is made in concentrated quantities. This allows for a full extraction of the tea's properties. Hot water can be added to the same tea leaves many times. With superior teas, this can even be up to 13 times. We taste each infusion independently to observe the changes in flavor. Tea drinkers can appreciate the many stages of the tea. This method also maximizes the quantity of brewed tea from each serving of tea leaves.
What is in the set:
For the full Gong Fu Cha experience, make sure to have the following items:
- Cha Hai / Gong Dao Bei – 'bowl of impartiality'
- Tea Filter – helps to get a cup of clear and bright tea
NOTE: Avoid using detergents when cleaning.
NOTE: This teapot is handcrafted. It makes each piece unique and one of a kind. Thus the teapot that you will receive may slightly differ from the one in the photos.
