Welcome to the forum! I'm an absinthe lover too. There are so many on the market to try now.
In terms of the variables you control, tea is on a whole other level compared to absinthe. If you have the palate to appreciate absinthe, then you're already off to a good start though. Enjoy!
Nice! I've mostly just switched to US absinthe's since they're easier to get. Not the gimicky ones though thats for sure. I'm a big fan of Pacifique and Walton Waters, next on the list is Meadow of Love (also by Delaware Phoenix)...but that's not exactly on topic for this forum
I'm going to need to do a lot of learning and tasting. I think I'll probably get a smaller pot like mentioned so I can try a variety of flavors before I step back into the yixing arena. I don't want to limit myself to just one type as a shot in the dark!
