How's that pot going BTW?
Heh it's too late! I have already reserved a gem of a pot from Petr Novak
a technical porcelain pot that's more versatile for brewing a wide range of teas.
Ohh the pot is simply gorgeous to hold and brew from. I find myself holding it in my hand, just feeling the lines and rough bits in it so often that I feel kinda silly
Initally I can 'taste' or smell a bit of the clay in my sencha, but it went away after couple of brews. I *think* it brings out the flavour and nuances of my sencha, while more or less maintaining the aftertaste. In my case, it actually made my current sencha taste more bitter and astringent initially, compared to brewing in a porcelain teapot
I think I need more sencha samples of higher quality to help me in my tastings. Current sencha batch is fukamushi and bought from Fukujuen, a Japanese tea shop in a shopping centre. I doubt it's of very good quality.
