Re: Teaware You Think We Need:

So now I always dream about another scoop but don't feel like going into 200$ purchase again. Sedlak's wood works are really nice, but for that money you may just carve one yourself. All you need is a piece of wood and a gouge (round chisel): the easiest is if you use green (fresh) wood and rough i...

Re: Teaware You Think We Need:

Really nice wooden scoop Bok. Who made it? Well spotted, one of my all time favourite tea accessory pieces. One of the few I have never thought of upgrading. It's made by a local Taiwanese wood-craftsman. Means a lot to me, back then I exchanged it with him for a teapot I made. Really nice. It is s...

Re: Teaware You Think We Need:

I don't think I've ever seen that before. My tea tray came with one of those tubes and I don't even like my tea tray. I'm going to get one with a large basin underneath, also the wood gets stained by tea if the color isn't dark enough. Before I found the beauty above, I used a copper made one I bou...

Re: The Essence of Tea

However, I can't manage to drink the volume of tea that comes in, so I will need to pause at some point. Or maybe I just need to learn to drink more tea 😁 In the recent past I wondered if I should get a subscription (with EoT or otherwise), and the reason I did not is exactly that. For some reason,...

Got one on the way from ys.
Expect a full report ;)
So how do you like the silver pot? Do you still use it? For what kind of tea it performs best in your opinion?

Re: Cleaning and Maintain Wooden Tea Tray (Cha Hai)

Few months ago I bought really nice tea tray from Michael Vermeij and he has really thorough instructions for maintaining his (or others) wooden works. Hope it helps. “ Care & Food Safety Cleaning Hand-wash your handmade wooden boards after each use with mild soap and warm water. Wipe by hand and al...

Re: What Pu'er Are You Drinking

I started with sheng and couldn't get enough of it for 8 months or so...then I tried some decent shou and this is has been growing on me, to the point where I'm now preferring it to sheng. Although I feel like I'll swing back or at least go back to 50/50 between them. Lately I've been drinking shou...

Re: An Ode to Czech Potters

Thanks to this thread, I have a new teapot. :D I like the construction of it a lot, and it's a nice size. Since my parents are from the Czech Republic, it's nice to have a piece of teaware that I feel a connection to. I haven't felt that with any of my yixing/japanese clay pots. https://www.instagr...

Re: Electric Kettles

Jeffrey McIntosh from Denong Tea made a gooseneck kettle comparison for tea brewing (bonavita vs oxo was Stagg ekg). Maybe someone find it helpful.

Re: Electric Kettles

I got Stagg EKG about a week ago. I really like how precise it is. But it does come with a price as pouring is quite slow. If I measured correctly it needs about 5-6 seconds to fill a 100ml pot. I figure it can become a problem with larger vessels. Otherwise 10/10.

Re: Research Corner: Interesting Journal Articles

I just came across this article. I really like Aeon so I am particularly happy they decided to write about tea.
