HB, maybe the pot helps with bitterness which enables you to use hotter water ?
I [unlike many others] have not had any problems with bitterness in the past
Just one tea from Dragon Tea House which gave me a very big tangy feeling - which I rather enjoyed
for the buzz
Teas from Hou De, Teacuppa, all my other DCs from DTH and of course all mine from Tea Habitat I have been more than happy with. DC is MY FAVOURITE tea.
I like body and texture (though not at the expense of) more than fragrance!
I prefer aroma through the back of the throat rather than the front of the nose [many nasal injuries through playing rugby for 25 years]
Until recently I have always used a kamjove kettle with temperature control, and set it to the middle of oolong temperatures for DC.
Now I have a new Brass Kamjove which only goes to the boil, and because of a few warnings about thin walled CZ pots cracking - I decided not to give it the full boil treatment!
