I have been taking Chinese black teas for years, buying mostly Yunnans and Keemun from fine sources here in Los Angeles and surrounding environs, where there are many Chinese people and demand for good tea. I like Keemun for everyday, many times a day, use. I put about a tablespoon in the porcelain infuser that sits in the cup, Chinese style; not cramped, it floats about freely and in less than one minute, VOILA, there is a fine cup. I can use the same leaves twice more to grand effect. I always used pots before, for loose tea, but these porcelain tea cups, with porcelain infusers that are roomy, and the cups have lids, too, to maintain warmth, I've found to be the best. It is not so much, how much, but how is the tea used? That is the question the noble mind must consider! As long as it is good, used to its best advantage, what more does one want? Propriety is learned, not taught. That is my experience.
