Wow that long! Thank god I gongfu brew as me don't like to wait around for tea
Yeah, but you have such a tiny amount!
I do 4 minutes at about 187F. Use more leaf if it's too weak for you.
Tiny amount? You mean the infusion? Yes, I brew roughly 120cc at a time,. However, when you brew gongfu, you steep time are seconds and not minutes. But trust me, if you have never brewed tea using the gongfu method with Yixing teapots which are made of high quality zisha, then you have never taste the potential of tea!
