One of our tc'ers suggest a power rinse. That's to say, a high pour with a lot of force to knock loose all the powdery offal. The technique works very well. I rinsed it twice and the tea became quite elegant.
Never would have tried that without Teachat.
Never would have had the Tea, either.
That is actually very interesting! Who'd a thunk it?!?
