- Begin by placing 4-8 grams of tea leaves into the body of the Gaiwan.
- Pour water heated to around 85-92 degrees Celsius over the leaves; this temperature is ideal for most green and black teas to avoid bitterness and extract the full flavor.
- Cover with the lid and let the tea steep briefly before decanting. The first infusion is often used to rinse the leaves and warm the vessels.
- Continue steeping and decanting for multiple infusions, extending the steeping time as needed to enjoy the evolving flavors of the tea.
This Gaiwan is not only a tool for brewing tea but also a centerpiece that captures the essence of Gongfu tea tradition, making every tea session a deeply cultural experience.
