It is a kind of custom in daily life and a courtesy in interpersonal communication. Spring water and the Tieguanyin tea which is first semi-fermented and then roasted into shape are best choices of making Gongfu tea. When making tea, the teapot and teacups will be cleaned by boiling water first. Then pour the tea leaves in the teapot and fill 70% of the teapot.
