Basic Gongfu Brewing Instructions

Have you ever wondered about different ways to brew your loose leaf tea? Here in the West most people are used to brewing tea with perhaps a tablespoon of tea leaves in an infuser or teabag and a whole mug of hot water, and steeping for maybe 3 to 5 minutes. This is what's known as Western style brewing, and there's nothing wrong with that! But I would love to introduce more people to a more traditional eastern style of brewing known as gongfu brewing. When you're buying pure, high quality teas, this is the way to get the absolute best cup. It's not something that a lot of people are familiar with, so I made this video as a quick introduction. Enjoy!
