The Gong Fu Tea Ceremony, also called the Chinese Art of Tea, is a cultural activity involving the ceremonial preparation and presentation of tea. The idea is that by using specific techniques and patience, you will produce the best cup of tea possible. We don’t want to give away all of the details, but Gong Fu sets in clude a Yixing pot, small cups (usually about an ounce), tea (traditionally oolong), a tea tray, and a pitcher. All of the clay items are warmed, the tea is steeped, poured into cups, and then shared with fellow tea drinkers. The process is reverent and beautiful to watch and you won’t want to miss the experience!

The Las Vegas Tea Club will be performing Gong Fu tea service throughout both days of #SWTF2017. Please feel free to visit them at the Lucky Dragon Poolside and witness and share the art of Gong Fu.
