I think cup/bowl has large part in how I will drink the tea. Type of tea also plays a significant roll along with temperature. I'd say I do all the things you have listed except snort :mrgreen:

Some yancha today on the menu to drink at work, temp is dropping fast, and I am ready for some warm comfort. I will be slurping this one pretty loud :D

Before I slurp I give it a really good sniffy sniff.

Matcha is very finely ground powder from a Japanese green tea flakes called Tencha.

Any of the new Adagio teas in your order?

Today, sipping, slurping, gulping some Black Ruby tea from NOrbu, and this evening, sniffing, sipping, and occasionally gulping (it's so good!) some Okumidori Kamaircha from Yuuki-cha.
