I understand the general steps of brewing Gongfu style but what I am looking for is more of the amount of tea I need as well as how long to infuse it.
The video actually didn't mention the amount and the time. Those strict intructions are not taken seriously in China, and you will get the different answers from different tea masters.
There are something called tea variables, when you want your teas stronger you insert more leaves or if you want it plain you insert fewer leaves. Brewing tea is like playing music, you get different idea and interpretation every second you are participated,
Keeping the instructions is like you'd wanna drink in a coffee shop, but sometimes it's good to be a barista
