Weird taste

by Melki » Jan 20th 20 10:03 pm

Hello all!

I'm getting in touch to get some help regarding my yixing clay teapot.
I used it for a few month and everything was fine... until I forgot, one time, to remove the leafs and some moisture got in. I tried to clean it, "boil" it in clean water, but whatever I do, there is a weird taste that just ruins the tea.

Would you have some tips for me? I would be very grateful....

Thanks!

Melki

where do you live? can you buy fresh soft Tofu?

fill up the pot with Tofu, vacuum bag it, put it fridge overnight,
next day use a very big pot to small fire boil the teapot in water for like 1 hour
bin the Tofu and see the smell get better or not, if not, repeat the step.

hope this can help you
