Chinese Gongfu tea has a long history. It was formed in the Tang Dynasty, developed in the Song and Yuan Dynasties, flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and concentrated in Chaozhou, Guangdong.
Also known as Chaozhou Gongfu tea.
Chaozhou Gongfu tea is the most representative kind of Chinese tea art. It is a complete form of tea ceremony that integrates spirit, etiquette, brewing skills, tea tour art, and quality evaluation. It is not only a tea art, but also a folk custom. It does not refer to the tea ceremony that is limited to Chaozhou and its surrounding areas, but the Chinese tea ceremony thought that has been inherited in one continuous line and has never been dated. It can be called the "living fossil" of Chinese tea culture and is also honored as "Chinese tea ceremony".
Today, Tongxinshe Teahouse recommends a set of Chaozhou Gongfu tea to all tea lovers. There are three cups in one pot, Jin Xian Meng Chen Hu and Min Guo Xiao Ruo Bei. On the lid of the tea, a word "Pin" is formed, which represents the emphasis on morality of tea drinkers.
The word "Gongfu" in Chaoshan dialect means "thoughtful, exquisite and exquisite".
"The pot is small and the world is big, the tea is thin and the human relationship is thick." Chaozhou Gongfu tea pays attention to "one pot and three cups" and puts etiquette first.
It reveals that the Chinese people attach great importance to the word "ritual" and integrate the world with tea to convey "harmony".
