Are you sure about this because the guy in this video picks up the bottom saucer and he seems to exactly know what he is doing. He was the owner of his own Chinese tea store in Canada as far as I know.
If you search "gongfu gaiwan" on youtube and view the videos shown most of them don't pick up the saucer.
But if you feel comfortable doing it that way then do it that way. No one's going to tell you you're wrong.
