I was sold til I had extreme sticker shock! Heh, $178 buys a lot of tea, so I will wait a few more seconds.
OK, tried the tasting cups to sample Adagio Alishan I received when it first came out and some I just received. There is a discussion HERE
that raised some questions and saw a great opp to give 'em a test run. I am going to do a round 2 tomorrow.
I used a gram per ounce of water, are there set parameters for doing a tasting?
It was actually pretty exciting trying out the sets and I learned a little from even the first tasting. For instance, you can simply set the inverted brewing vessel on top of the cup and move right to the next one, etc. The inverted vessel thus continues to pour as you go to the next one and next one, etc.
And since there is no spout, just a slot, you quickly invert the vessel in order to prevent major dribbling.
