Gung Fu Tea Ceremony

Last weekend my family and I enjoyed a Gung Fu Tea Ceremony for the first time.  Gung Fu is a type of Chinese tea ceremony used for tasting Oolong teas. I highly recommend you try this if you have get a chance, there are a lot tools required  so you will probably have to seek out a tea house or someone with their own set. If you would like to learn more about the details of the ceremony itself then check out the Seven Cups video podcast going through the entire process.

Here are a couple more photos from the ceremony:
