- Product Details
- Gong Fu Cha literally means "making tea with patience and purpose" and uses 3-4 times more tea leaves steeped multiple short time periods. Depending on the type of tea, each steeping time can range from 20 seconds to 1 minute. With each successive steep, the time increases. Some teas can be steeped ten or more times. This unusual steeping technique creates a flavor experience that evolves and changes with each steep.
- Another facet of Gong Fu Cha is "being mindful" while preparing tea. When steeping tea, use slow, smooth, and creative movements. Clear your mind of daily frustrations and concentrate only on your movements. Allow yourself the freedom to be creative and spontaneous while preparing tea.
- When the tea is ready to drink, turn your focus to the color, aroma, and taste of each steeping. If you've previously made this tea "western-style, ie., one long steeping," mindfully compare the flavor differences between the two steeping methods.
