If the water temp is close to boiling, doesn't that mean that there should be some visible motion in the kettle i.e. largish bubbles rising? Lately when I've been brewing pu or oolong, in between each infusion I've been turning on my electric kettle just for a few seconds or so just till I start to see small bubbles rising. Maybe I've been brewing it too hot?


Movie magic my dear friend.

I cut the boiling water in the kettle with a bit of room temp water - sometimes this kettle is quite disruptive, with the lid rattling a lot - I thought that would distract from the tea making. My water was hot, but no more than 195. Yours should be a full boil.

Does that mean then that I should bring the water to near boiling for each infusion? Maybe I'm being too particular and should just go with the dao... :lol:

When using an electric kettle, I reboil every 2-3 rounds. Sounds like you are already on the right track.

I just saw Brandon's brewing-video and I must say that sometimes the world would be better at double speed, so that I can get to taste the tea faster.

So, how goes the rest of the story Chip? :D

The rest of the story will have to wait just a bit longer ... :mrgreen:

I am surprised everyone is not clamoring, "where's my sheng???!!!???"

I am sitting on my hands waiting for the zip pouches for this SO to arrive. Sorbent's site indicates east and west coast distribution facilities ... NOT. I ordered expecting to receive them quickly.

Anyway, they should be here this week.

It's been waiting around 20 years to be consumed... I think it can handle a few more days.
