About Gongfu Teapot – White Clouds:
This small porcelain Gongfu pot is made of white porcelain inlaid with a delicate cloud pattern. It is ideal for a Gongfu style tea ceremony.
The Gongfu style of brewing is native to Fujian province, China and Taiwan. The style encompasses several tea utensils, including a small teapot (around 3 to 6 ounces) and is typically used to brew Oolong or Puer teas. The essence of the Gongfu style is to enjoy tea in a ceremonial setting that highlights the tea preparer’s hospitality. The tea is prepared in small brewing rounds and poured into a small pitcher, then into individual cups. The process is very engaging and exudes ‘Cha Tao’ – a term used to describe tea spirit.
