I was looking for a ceramic base one, but went for a cheaper bamboo one because it was available locally. While its nice being able to brew very wet if I want, the problem is its also what starts t...

Re: Looking for new tea tray recommendations

I do enjoy a minimalist setup when I am brewing in the kitchen/shed/garden but when I am in my dedicated team space I enjoy a larger tray. My partner found this one for me when she was in China last, but I have seen it listed in places like AliExpress with a search for wooden tea tray. Very nice se...

Re: Looking for new tea tray recommendations

I came to a realization that I dont need a big 'ole tea tray and that a small tea boat is enough to collect drippings. I got a cheaper one to start with and so far i like it more than the tray. :D

Re: The Porcelain Thread

I typically brew black tea western style and I'm looking for a larger tea pot, around 200-250ml. I am strongly considering porcelain as the material in a traditional teapot or perhaps a Kyusu. What are some reputable vendors that I should be looking at? Thanks in advance gregcss For that size of po...

Re: What Black Are You Drinking

Looks great. I ordered a teapot from Hojo long ago and have since forgot how to order from them. Can someone remind me how to do that? Go to https://hojotea.com/item_e/available.htm . The price list is hidden in plain sight, just click the big banner at the top, which looks so much like an ad banne...
