This weekend's TeaPoll and discussion topic.

(I advocate mug drinking to new tea drinkers because very often their only alternative is a very big teapot which can kill most greens or oolongs.) It was never a problem for me, because most of the time the tea leaves stay put at the bottom of the cup. Even when one or two float into my mouth, I don't mind.
What do you people think? Do you mind drinking from a mixture of leaves and water, not acceptable, barely acceptable, or no problem at all? Hey Chip can this be a Tea Day question?
So the topic is cup brewing aka "grandpa brewing" where the leaves are loose in the cup as you drink. Do you do it, enjoy it? Does the thought of all the leaves in the cup as you drink bother you? Please share.
Here is the topic on this subject btw. http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=13777
I am looking forward to sharing this TeaWeekend with everyone. Bottoms up!
