Yeah, my bosses will just love me putting my tea purchases on the company credit card! 🙂
Nice video, James. But why use the kettle and the tetsubin?
Thanks for the leaf shot. Perhaps you can do a show on leaf post mortems- most drinkers don’t realize there’s a wealth of information hiding in the spent leaves. You might have to just save up the leaves for a few days in the fridge to get enough spent leaves for a show though.
Also have you tasted any shu that was Guangzhou or Hong Kong stored? I’ve only bothered to buy sheng humid stored and I’ve always gotten my shu from Kunming. I don’t want to buy any more shu but I would if it’s that much more tasty.
Free Shu at work? Wow, at my office area we have nothing better than Leap-tahn.
Thanks for the great idea of steeping two infusions consecutively, sipping at the first while the second cools off a bit, etc. I’ve incorporated this into my sessions. Since you use a tetsubin, I’m wondering if you’ve used it with tap water. MarshalN says that depending on your regular water source for tea, tap water boiled in a tetsubin may make your tea better (http://wp.me/p1iX6r-Oj).
