The test volume I used through out the testing was 210 ml.Chip wrote: ↑Mon Sep 30, 2019 7:50 pmTrue! One reason brewing a large pot of gyokuro the same way as a very small shib will likely not work well.
I even considered a shorter brew time for the Tachi Shigaraki because i sensed the clay is so highly reactive when brewing. But I kept times the same. Lol, so many variables, these tests might run into 2020.
My volumes were all the same.
However, I have been considering this since I replied earlier ... and recalled that I used both 210 ml volune and then several 105 volumes through out the testing period which made little difference with the Kobiwako clay. It was always very good.
I did a few 105 ml volumes with the Tachi as well. But cannot fully recall if volume impacted results much for the Shigaraki clay. So I assume it was very similar to the 210 ml.
Anyway, today i brewed sencha selection #2 in 2 sizes of Kobiwako. This morning with the larger kyusu and 210 ml. This afternoon with the smaller kyusu and 105 ml.
Hope to post about this later tonight ... but I will say this much ... technically speaking ... they were both freakin good!
