Gong Fu Cha
Gong Fu Cha is a technique to prepare and fully appreciate the flavours of Oolong teas.
Place a Yi Xing clay teapot and two teacups (one to smell, one to taste) onto a tea boat.
Pour rustling water into the teapot and shed it into a reserve pot.
Fill half of the teapot with tea leaves, pour some water to rinse them and pour the rinsing water into the reserve pot.
Pour the content of the reserve pot into a teacup and empty it in the tea boat.
Fill the teapot with rustling water to the brim, leave to infuse for 1 minute and pour the liquor into the reserve pot.
Fill both teacups with the content of the reserve pot.
Inhale the scent of tea from one teacup and drink the tea from the second one.
Make several successive infusions following the same process.
