THE ART OF GONGFU TEA
Hosted by Teahouse Kuan Yin
On April 21st, we experienced the wonders of brewing teas Gong Fu style - a style ubiquitous in Taiwan and common in China. Gong Fu Tea is a ritual of brewing tea that not only produces the most flavorful cup, but is also calming and meditative, promoting a holistic way of experiencing tea. Attendees learned about the history and techniques of Gong Fu tea, and why it is the perfect way to brew oolong and puerh teas. We demonstrated and explained the pieces behind this brewing style in an interactive process, as well as sampled a number of high quality Taiwanese oolong and Chinese puerh teas.
