Tea in 2010: from Gadgets to Gongfu (tea tasting, demo & ceremony)

    Gongfu Magic: A few people, a small pot, short steeps, tiny sips ... repeat 30 times in close succession. The tea is mild, yet the process takes one along the path to a light and airy tea intoxication, one that's particular to the gongfu method of imbibing tea. Perhaps the repetition of the brew/pour/drink cycle creates the smooth, hypnotic effect. This, combined with the elements of the tea, serves to elevate the drinkers, and gongfu chadao, to a special place in time, space, and tea culture.
