Thank you for the replies!!
and the warm welcomes too!
The reason why I want a larger teapot size is because I want to brew one nice big pot of tea to decant into a glass pitcher and drink it throughout my study sessions
It will be quite distracting if I keep getting up to brew another pot. I would enjoy the process greatly no doubt but it's bad for grades
Furthermore I find that I tend to go through around 2-3 cups of 300ml coffee per day if I'm really focusing at my study table
Oh just asking, seems like a stupid question but how long can I leave the tea leaves inside the kyusu in between re-steeps? I don't want to spoil an expensive kyusu the moment I buy one
Hi David! Just a question though. Do you use both the Gisui and Shigaraki for senchas? Or do you use them for oolong/pu-erh as well? When you said Shigaraki performs better do you mean it brings out the taste/flavour/aroma more? Or is it just in a subjective sense?
Sorry to ask so many questions! Still a newbie here to tea actually but I must say after tasting an above average quality sencha that I bought here in Singapore, 24.50USD for 50g, I am extremely curious to know how premium sencha actually tastes like!
P.S Currently I'm still a university student but I earn my own keep to buy these....'collectibles'
which includes vintage fountain pens, nice writing paper, good teas, good coffee beans etc.
