The introduction of Gongfu Cha
What is Gongfu Cha?
Gongfu Cha is generally taken as a term that describe the Chinese way of making tea. Does it really has something to do with the martial art – Kungfu? The answer is: yes and no. To win your enemy, one needs practice, know-how, strategy and concentration. These are also similar in practising Gongfu Cha: practice, know-how, understanding the nature of the tea and concentration.
Generally, Gongfu Cha is often seen as brewing one tea with multiple steeping. Which is one of the very different style compare to tea brewing in the western style with a big teapot of at least 1L. And the tea would only be brewed one time.
