Infuser basket included: No Color: Brown About Gongfucha: Gongfucha translates to “tea with great skill.” The earliest detection of the gongfucha practice was found in the Chaozhou region of China, between Fujian and Guangdong. Rather than a symbolic event, gongfucha is a service intending to realize the art of tea toward a science by controlling the variables of tea quality and quantity, water temperature, brew time, and teapot size. About Yixing Clay: The locale of yixing clay is the Yixing area of Jiangsu (east), China. The red clay is fired, but lacks any glazing process to retain the natural pores of the clay. This is important because these pores retain the flavor of the tea with each steeping. Legend has it that one will not even need to add tea leaves to a well-used, yixing pot after 20 years, as the pot will have absorbed so much flavor and aroma, it will generate the tea itself.
