Greetings people of the forum,
I'm in the market for a Bentley. Just want to ask a few questions to the Tokoname wizards.
From my studies, there are two kinds of clay mesh screens. Well, at least according to this video: http://youtu.be/tJUtv0n5rew
There is a Fukamushi Clay Sasame Screen and an Asamushi Clay Sasame Screen. The former has smaller holes. The latter has larger holes.
1. Does anyone have a preference and why? I plan on using this teapot for fukamushi and asamushi.
2. Do clay sasame screens handle fukamushi teas well? Or is that just a myth that sasame purists like to throw around?
3. Is there any drawback to only filling your teapot half full when making sencha?
Thank you. And have a nice day.
