The Farm Story

Fang Guoqiang grew up on a tea farm in Xiuning County of Anhui Province, where he began learning how to hand-fry and knead green tea as a teenager in the 1970s. His dedication to traditional agriculture and quality tea helped him become the leader of the local tea and timber business, which he later focused solely on tea production. Tunlü, a type of green tea that gets its name from Tunxi Wharf on the Xin’an River, is available in two varieties from Fang Guoqiang: Yun Wu (Clouds and Mist) and Fo Mei (Buddha’s Eyebrow), both made from the same tea cultivar as Qimen black teas. Yun Wu is hand-picked in April with 4-5 fresh leaves, while Fo Mei is harvested by machine from the crown of the tea bushes with 6-8 fresh leaves.

  • Pour hot water into the gaiwan, swirling it around to warm the vessel. Pour out the water, leaving the gaiwan and lid warm.
  • Measure the appropriate amount of tea leaves based on your personal preference and the type of tea. Typically, the tea is usually brewed at a ratio of 1:20, it's about 5-8g of tea leaves for a standard-sized gaiwan.
  • Put the measured tea leaves into the preheated gaiwan.
  • Pour hot water over the tea leaves.
  • Allow the tea to steep for a short time, usually 10-20 seconds for the first infusion.
  • Hold the lid slightly ajar to create a small opening, and pour the tea into a fairness pitcher or directly into small cups, straining the leaves.
  • Take a moment to appreciate the aroma of the freshly brewed tea. The first infusion is often more about awakening the leaves than consuming the tea.
  • For subsequent infusions, repeat the process, gradually increasing the steeping time. Tea leaves can be infused multiple times, and each infusion may reveal different flavors.
  • Experiment with the steeping time to find the flavor profile you enjoy. As a general guide, increase the steeping time by a 5-10 seconds with each subsequent infusion.
  • Sip and enjoy the tea. The leaves can often be reinfused several times, revealing evolving flavors. Continue the process until the leaves lose their flavor.

You can brew tea using a gaiwan, allowing you to experience the nuanced flavors and aromas of the tea leaves. Adjustments can be made based on personal preferences and the specific type of tea you are brewing.
