I guess that makes me an ultra left brainer.
I set the timer to count-up for most teas and for all Japanese teas, hit it once and watch it for the first steep mostly. Successive steeps I am pretty oblivious to it.
As I have mentioned before, I like to use the count-up versus timer so there is no bleeping beeping and I just hit it once ... then can pretty much forget about it.
Began the TD with Miyabi shincha with the Mrs., timed first steep of 75 seconds for this chumushi. Came our perfect!
