Gong Fu Cha is another name for the Chinese Tea Ceremony. The English translation of Gong Fu Cha is "making tea with skill."  Gong Fu Cha is different from Western-style tea making and is prepared in small teapots filled 1/3 full with tea. Since more tea is used, the steeping time is brief, and the same leaves are steeped multiple times. This process brings out more tea flavor, and as the steepings continue, the strength of the tea increases and then weakens. 

NOTE: In 2023, The Cultured Cup will introduce an educational work of art that will become the focus of what we call "cultural curation." Stay tuned for an exciting educational announcement in January of 2023.  

Fun Facts:  This teacup has a "Sancai glaze," meaning a 3-colored glaze applied to ceramic ware. This glaze was first developed during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD).
