OK, so these "Tea Pearls" are actually tea liquor pearls, not the common air bubbles? A new sensory perception.

Hm, I don't know if I can train fukamushi (nor most Japanese teas) to to this trick. :mrgreen: Seriously actually, wouldn't the particals pop the pearl the instant it even begins forming. Seems like a very clean liquor would be best.

Before seeing the picture, I was wondering what tea pearls were and guessing they were stuff like this:

Nice! I would say let your son pour all the time ... he is a TeaPearl natural. :mrgreen: If I did not know any better, I would say you put vitamin E caplets in your tea.

Thank you Drax. :D
Mr. Sleeves is taking a much needed hiatus. He is on sabbatical brushing up on his olive pit lighting technique.
