Fujian Kung Fu tea ceremony

Along with oolong tea itself, a popular method for brewing the tea also originates in Fujian province. The Fujian tea ceremony or Kung Fu tea ceremony (the gong fu method of brewing tea) is ideally suited to oolong tea. Kung Fu tea ceremony, literally "tea brewing with great skill", is a type of Chinese tea ceremony originally used to prepare oolong tea, though today any loose leaf may be used. A small tea pot and small cups are used to infuse the tea leaves multiple times. The tea pot is packed with full of tea leaves, and the brewing time is short.
