Technically, this OTTI is closed pending payments.

You can still PM me if you want to be an alternate ... just in case.

Thanks everyone for participating! :mrgreen:

If your purple teapot is too large, preheat it and fill it to 100ml level for this exercise.

Please keep the ratios as close as possible to the reference material (TBA).

At least we aren't totally deprived of the experience, no matter what brewing vessel we use! ;)

I only ask that everyone makes their best effort to brew the samples in the same way.

Understood Brandon, I'll do my best. Of course, if you want to send me a purple clay pot, I'll follow your instructions to a "T"!

hmmmm my purple clay pot is about 250ml and dedicated to hong cha.

I´ll be brewing the puerh samples in either a 70ml gaiwan or 120ml glazed Petr Novak pot.
