What is Gong Fu Brewing?
Gong fu means time and effort.
This brewing technique is a widely known style of tea-making in China. It takes a bit more time and effort to make tea this way, but there are many benefits. For most teas, a vessel called a Gai Wan is used, which consists of a bowl with a lid. Green teas and yellow teas use an open vessel style.
These brewing techniques are not ceremonial. They are used in everyday life: at teahouses; amongst friends at home; and at business meetings.
