I have another question for the forum..
I just got a new yixing from YS (http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/pro ... roduct=907
) and decided to dedicate it to green oolong. I have one other yixing (http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/pro ... oduct=1016
) I use for Wu Yi.
The old one works perfectly and I've never had any trouble with it, and it is nicely seasoned. However, I'm having trouble pouring from the new one. It works fine with no tea in it, but when I'm brewing it gets stopped up really easily. I'm not sure if this is just the nature of balled oolong or if there is something wrong with the pot. When the leaves start to unfurl some of them will go flat onto the holes where it is supposed to pour through. Is there any way I can prevent this while brewing so it doesn't take me ~20 secs to finish pouring out my tea?
