Like Stephane, I also never rinse. And I also use a small amount of leaves per gaiwan (3 g.). Glad to see that an expert does what I do – or vice versa!
Speaking of gaiwans, nice one you have there, guys. From where did you procure it? And what is its capacity?
I see that usually you guys let the lid be off between infusions. This time you’ve left it on,I wonder what is better for preserving leaves – lid on or off? Thanks as usual, Barak
