I usually count in my head...sort of and be mind full....for some reason I got up and walked off during the brewing LOL then rushed back and made myself drink the bitter brew as punishment

Every year I try at least one longjing, and every year I refresh my memory about my preference for other spring greens.

On the other hand, I never regret or tire of my beautiful TeaChat artisan teaware. I purchased the small (60 ml) green gaiwan and matching cup from Shawn at Greenwood Studio about a year ago, and the yuzamashi is from his recent spring kiln sale.

I'm having difficulty capturing the beautiful curves of the yuzamashi with my iPad camera. All Shawn's teaware handles well in addition to brewing well. Then if I don't enjoy the tea at least I can enjoy the view of the beautiful teaware on my tea tray.

I upped the temp on the longjing to 190° and now I'll happily drink it until it's gone. This years longjing experiment is Weng-jia Shan.

Another day warm enough for cool-brewed sencha. Mmm.

Woke up very early in the morning today. Made a nice breakfast and usher in the day with a nice sweet and creamy gyokoru. Yummy! :D

Cheers! :D
