Re: What teas are easy on the stomach

Also, watching my meal portions has helped enormously. As far as teas are concerned, I’m careful not to drink them on an empty or almost empt...

Re: Yixing advice

I would stick with porcelain. Every clay teapot is different, that's why they say the teapot picks the tea, not the other way. But you are forgetting one thing: all porcelain is also not the same... :lol: Old/new, Japanese/Chinese/European, Jingdezhen/Dehua/Chaozhou, thin/thick, glazed/unglazed, et...

I believe both versions skyrocketed in price, and became a collector’s tea. I wonder if any later reproductions can get close to the first 2 generations.
It's generally a selected 7542 blend at a premium price. I've discovered it's more rewarding to make my own quirky blends... :D :D

It's unglazed clay. It'll always have an effect. Zhuni has the smallest effect, but it still changes the tea compared to a Gaiwan. For really high end yancha, I think only porcelain is the way to go.
Absolutely agree with @Youzi 👍🏻👍🏻

Re: tea and music

I'm using a thermos to have a stock of cooked water for a session, hence mostly quieter music works fine here. Weird sound landscapes, ambient passages and recordings of nature are welcome if rare guests - i'm easily get carried away by music, so it's hard to keep those activities in delicate balan...
