Do the holes of the filter meet the pot wall on the underside of the filter?
Thank you! I can't have a direct view of the underside but from what I feel with my fingers, yes they do meet the pot wall. Does it affect the function if they do/don't?
Yes, in a big way. See the kyusu I just posted in this topic here: http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=12445&start=465#p234036
This screen, instead of facilitating a complete pour like it should, acts like a dam holding the last 10 ml in the kyusu ... not good!!! In fact horrendously bad. That water can continue to steep the leaves throwing off the taste of successive steeps. You want a complete pour ... down to the last drop.
Sort of a textbook on how not to attach a Kyusu screen.
When the holes run flush with at least part of the body of the pot, you are best apt to be able to pour all the brew out ... as you should be able to do.
