Email is in! I'm really looking forward to the gyokuro. My brewing technique will certainly be tested.

Some Kyusu-less members use a gaiwan.

Once upon a time at a restuarant, I used the coffee cup with the saucer as a lid. It was awkward, but it worked.

Then another time flying to LV for WTE, I had just received shincha before leaving ... I used a napkin as a strainer in a paper cup. There was no way I was going to wait ... I have photos somewhere ... I called it "Shincha at 40,000 Feet."

But yeah, a Kyusu is more ... pleasant.

Thank you to all the readers and participants so far!

At last count, there are a dozen "sets" remaining that I really need members to take off my hands. I would actually prefer 15 get taken which still leaves me with several sets for personal tastings.

Soooo, please sign up and join us!

And I figure that since we are more than 24 hours in, if anyone wants to up their quantities, please feel free to do so by emailing me as well. :mrgreen:

Some good old "arm twisting" seems to have helped! Looks like we are 4 "sets" away from my minimum comfort zone for this GY-OTTI round ... almost there ...

Just need a few more TCers to join us at the Gyokuro TeaTable. :idea: :!: :twisted:

Thanks Chip!! I have a couple of gaiwans which might do the trick... Is there anywhere I could grab possible ratios of leaf/water for a gaiwan? :D
