I'll be travelling for 5 days and forgot to plan how to enjoy my tea on the road (actually, in the hotel room). I've pretty much made up my mind (option a) but thought I would ask...
I have a few options:
a) I have some Dens green tea bags, and I can use the hot water provided at the compl breakfast. I like this idea for it's simplicity. So far it's my plan
b) to the other extreme - bring "the works": my variable temp kettle, kyusu, cup, loose tea, measuring spoon, and buy bottled water there. I could even bring a gaiwan and other tea. I'll be in the room mornings and some time in the evening. Not sure I want to haul all this stuff though (I am driving and have room), but it's the best way to enjoy tea. Cleaning is a bit of an issue?
c) I can go with option (a) and check out the unpromising place in town (you know the type, they have sencha, oolong, etc., but lots of their selections are flavored). Hey, it's a trip so no need to be snobby!
I would like to keep it simple...hence I'm leaning towards option a (Den's tea bags are already packed!).
