Although I haven't been able to choose 6 favorites, I did have a spectacular tea day today. I visited a nearby tea plantation and spent the day picking tea with friends. I produced a small batch of my own tea compltetely by myself. The tea isn't spectacular by any stretch, but I made it myself, so it's kind of fun.

Thanks for sharing some faves with us Chasm, David!!!

IPT, looks like a lot of fun, and I have definitely seen much worse Mao Feng :!:

I see your kyusu by Kenji sitting in the front of that pic, Chip. I bought the same one a year or two back, again, because I'd seen you rave about how much you loved yours. It exceeded expectations.


Began the TD with Organic Sencha from Rishi with the Mrs. brewed in the same Kenji and served up in an SO 10 Ice Split.

Had to move a lot of things around to make room for a new arrival Hagi ... sorry for the photo, all artificial light with an old camera.

There are certainly a lot of faves here ...

Sounds just fabulous. I imagine the tea is wonderfully seasoned by the joy of producing it yourself, the memories of the day, and the feeling of it in your hands.

No pretty display of teawares, but the 'home' wares are all here....

This morning, Hon Yama Zairai sencha in the Tokoname kyusu and the 'granite' yunomi--both at the front of their shelves, for ease of handling first thing in the morning.

OK, going to cop out with "virtually all are faves, except a few glaring mistakes along the way." I simply cannot choose. 8)

Great TeaDay ... finishing with Seijak Korean from a TCer!

It was, but I did burn my hands in the wok. It is 200 degrees. The hands of the people who do it for a living are really hard.
