The Chinese have a special method for brewing tea, which can produce remarkable results, called the Gong Fu Cha method. Gong Fu means "skill and care" or "techniques."
The Gong Fu method is typically used for more complex tea like oolong and pu-erh. The method uses a very small teapot, small thimble-sized cups, bamboo tweezers, a bamboo scoop, and a tray with drains. Everything in Gong Fu service is small and delicate, revealing the elegance of the tea it promotes.
Our Terracotta Teapot Maintenance Kit is specially designed to enhance your tea making experience with your new teapot. A properly maintained teapot can bring out the complex flavours, aromas, and textures from the tea you are steeping and become more valuable over time.
