As for the topic of the thread... I haven't had any tea yet today. I classified myself as semi-gongfu, as I have taken what I like from traditional gongfu and have modified it to suit my tastes and aesthetic preferences.
I tend to prefer simple, near-minimalist techniques and wares. By near-minimalist wares I mean mostly minimalist, but with the occasional slightly more elaborate design to give my setup a focus.
I usually don't use any cha dao tools, though I will occasionally use tongs or a scraper during cleanup. I use a cha he (leaf display) to measure and funnel dry leaf into a gaiwan, yixing teapot, or kyūsu. From there, I add water (this step is done slightly differently depending on what I'm making), wait, and decant into a pitcher or cup (again depending on what I'm making). Oh, and I guess I prewarm everything beforehand too.
Really though, I feel that this is based on bare-bones gong fu. I don't use all 50 dozen tools (I exaggerate), I don't elaborately wash my cups in hot water/rinses, I don't use special coasters, I don't use aroma cups, etc. Of course these things are fine to use, I just don't personally enjoy them. That said, my style changes fairly often, so on another teaday I may say the opposite.
Anyway, there's a look into the "simple" brewing style of mine.
