Green Tieguanyin Kyuso style!
All I need is a tea bowl!
After my initial Tieguanyin session this morning failed to wow me, (see below post) I decided to brew it up like a Japanese tea, using my Takaname kyuso and I like it very much this way! Drinking it out of a tea bowl instead of a small cup, the flavors are expanding gently, the leaves seem to love the extra space inside the kyuso in which to unfurl. Terribly unorthodox? I wouldn't know nor care. The tea is the thing, the experience, personalizing it, making it work for me. That's what keeps me coming back. What are your thoughts I wonder?
