Basically, it says to put tea in warmed pot, pour water on the *outside* of the pot (lid on) for a bit, open pot and let out the 'bad air'. Repeat 3-4 times, and then proceed as usual (rinse, and then drink). Will try it some time.
Actually there's also other details like what type of pot is preferred, also the temperature. It's worth a try

It's not a mere surface smell. Many smoky teas will also not give up their 'smoked' aroma and flavor no matter how many tricks I've tried. It would be nice to have a technique that really worked.
Voodoo or not, just try it yourself.
Of cos u need to followed the steps correctly.
These things aren't something hard to proof wrong, but if it works even just little (or some) improvement, it's a winner to me
Edit: The interesting with tea, is every minor details may affect the taste. Can't really explained with logic, at least I can't.
