Gong Fu Cha, which means preparing tea with time, attention and precision. By resteeping the tea repeatedly briefly, you can enjoy the evolution of taste and aroma; some quality tea you can resteep up to eight times. Start with 3 grams of whole tea leaves. Start to preheat the gaiwan by pouring hot water into the gaiwan, pour the water away, put the tea in the gaiwan and smell. Then pour hot water in the gaiwan (with the dry tea leaves in it) and use the lid to stir the tea. The less minerals your water contain, the better the subtle and complex flavors come into their own. Wait about a minute and pour the tea into the cups. These steps can be repeated several times. To your taste you can increase the amount of tea and / or shorten the steeping time. Using the gaiwan requires some skill: to practice first with cold water is recommended.
