Porcelain Gaiwan with Handwritten Calligraphy Gong Fu set
If you want to brew your Chinese tea the right way, then try Gong Fu Cha, the Chinese tea ceremony.
The resulting cup of tea is comparable to a cup of espresso. On the other hand, western brewing creates something similar to a big cup of coffee, or as it's called in Europe – ‘americano’.
When using a gaiwan, tea is brewed in concentrated quantities. This allows for the full extraction of all the tea's best qualities. Hot water can be added to the same tea leaves up to 13 times with superior quality teas. Each infusion offers us a slightly different taste and aroma. Tea drinkers can appreciate the gradual transformation of the tea.
Porcelain is the top choice when drinking light teas like light oolongs, green tea, white tea, and yellow tea. Instead of absorbing, porcelain highlights the subtle notes of the gentle yet aromatic lighter teas. Against the white background, the lighter tea liquor and beautiful unfurling tea leaves are a pleasant sight.
What is in the set:
- 1 Porcelain Gaiwan with Handwritten Calligraphy
- 1 Glass Cha Hai / Gong Dao Bei
- 2 Ivory White Porcelain Gong Gu Tea Cups
