Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Our box from O- Cha arrived yesterday, woohoo, 10 bags of Japanese sencha.

Chip opened the Satsuma yesterday, today awesomely, deliciously sweet, full of umami , great brewing session.

Kudos to my personal brew master :mrgreen:

Re: Site Feedback & Discussion

I'm wondering if it would be possible to add a save draft option when creating a post. That maybe gets triggered when your going to refresh the page or accidentally do so. It's happened a bunch of times where I write out a long post and then accidentally hit back on my phone or something else happe...

Re: Korean Teaware Showcase

Oh Janice, what is a lovey little pot, love those spirals. It is gorgeous. We need to revisit his pots in our collection. I adore the whimsical qualities of his wares.

Re: Japanese Greens - Can’t Get Away

This is how much I love Japanese greens - if I had to choose a future with chocolate or Japanese greens, one to the exclusion of the other, I would choose Japanese greens. This is coming from someone who thinks chocolate is the best food ever. I used to drink a wider variety of teas, but now I must...

Re: Japanese Greens - Can’t Get Away

My favourite teas are all Japanese green: Sencha (light or medium steamed), Matcha and Gyokuro. Oh, and I often have Genmaicha .... Oolongs, Chinese Green, etc. They are all decent teas, but it reinforces for me that my go-to for enjoyment is Japanese Greens. I’m getting to the point where I want t...

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

So I get bored quite quickly, ie drinking the same tea too often, and I'm wondering if I should order another sencha or two now or wait till spring for the new harvest, which is not too far off. I'm wondering what will be a nice contrast and a bit different to my deep steamed yutaka midori. We just...

Irabo style chawan by Korean artist Shin Jeong-hee.
I especially like the simple elegant shape as well as the modest look of this teabowl given as a present by a special tea-friend.
Beautiful, thank you for sharing Elise!

I can venture to say that we enjoy them almost 'too much", if you get my drift :twisted:
Seeing your 12 days of kyusu, definitely not in little dosages! :lol:
:mrgreen: We should be resuming that tea experiment very soon, we are both almost 100 percent better.

Re: Ode to the Kyusu

Haha probably do not read that everyday in a thread about kyusu! I can top it and say I never drink Sencha, unless I am gifted one (which so far only happened once!). +1 I also drink sencha very very rarely, mostly gifts. But I really enjoy Japanese wares. It's a quite inspiring example of a cultur...

Re: Ode to the Kyusu

No worries Victoria, just a test. I'll be trying high mountain next. Though, I don't drink high mountain a lot and sencha nearly never and would hate to see the pot seldom used. I'll be trying all sorts of teas and want to see if it benefits any of my more frequently drunk teas positively. Cheers -...

Hi Bok, I did not mean to infer that kyusu were only for sencha, I was just saying wow, no sencha ;)

Re: Ode to the Kyusu

Teachronicles, very nice Sou kyusu, proportions and clay are super. I would recommend to pair with sencha and high mountain oolong. Not roasted DongDing. The sweet high mountain oils don’t detract from sencha. I do use almost boiling water to clean pot before air drying though.. High mountain and s...
