About Tiny White Porcelain Gongfu Teapot:
This small porcelain Gongfu teapot is ideal for a Gongfu style tea ceremony. Porcelain, unlike clay, will not retain flavors of the tea after use and therefore is great choice for brewing all types of teas including herbal infusions.
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.
