My philosophy of life is that everything is better in a Bodum Pavina, double-walled thermo glass!

I don't think I would rinse it, though I suppose a lightning rinse might help and probably wouldn't hurt. How are you brewing?

And then there's the option of ignoring it!

I think that you're finally seeing what's always been there because you're just now using glass.

I would suggest using a filter if you don't like it. I use a filter for pu-erh and oolongs. I would NEVER use a filter for sencha/fukamushicha though.
