Caring For Your Gong Fu Teapot

Taiwan oolong tea is best prepared in a small Gong Fu style tea pot. Other brewing methods are possible, but the Gong Fu tea sets are ideal for fully appreciating the flavors and aromas of fine oolong tea.

Gong Fu teapots have traditionally been used for brewing oolong tea, but they can also be used for other types of tea such as black tea or green tea. However, each Gong Fu teapot should be used for just one kind of tea. If you use a teapot for oolong tea, don't prepare black tea in it.

Part of the esteem that Gong Fu teapots enjoy comes from the fact that these teapots take on the flavor of the tea. After years of use your tea pot will enhance your tea by imparting the accumulated flavors. It has been said it's like brewing tea in tea.

The teapots on the Tea From Taiwan website can be used as bought after a quick rinsing. Over time, they will gradually take on the desirable patina and flavors of a well-used gong fu teapot.

Seasoning a new teapot will impart these desirable qualities right away. Follow these steps to season a new gong-fu teapot:
