Favorite methods to make tea

The gongfu cha style of tea preparation using a gaiwan is one of In Pursuit of Tea's favorite ways to make tea.  We like to use a gaiwan, too! Of the method, IPoT writes,
It enables precise control over the steeping and pouring - you adjust the lid to hold back the leaves and let the liquid out - as well as appreciation of the evolving flavor and aroma of the tea.

We would also like to add that the preparation is fascinating to watch and the teaware is lovely.
