Nah just 1/2 or 1/3 fill it......makes no difference with Japanese teas IMO. In fact you'll get better results just going for half full.....filter less likely to clog. Half filling will allow the shape of the pot to do its job keeping the leaves away from the filter.
Wow that one is beautiful too! Is buying it with the wooden box safer? How are they dealing with shipping? Any customs problems? Well packed?Alex wrote:vink wrote:Then is there anything in between? Hojo teapots looks awesome but a bit too pricy for me right. More looking for a 100$ with shipping max.
Yes a Tachi Masaki purple clay pot as I mentioned
This is like $70

The only thing with that is that I was asking the pot for christmas They don't seem to sell gift certificate lol!
Damn you! Now I really want that Tachi Masak!Alex wrote:No safer with box as packing is excellent and any trouble AN will have you covered so only buy the box if you really want it (I personally wouldnt)
