Felt i just had to try this tea westernstyle.
I brewed it in the same manner i brew darjeeling SF/AF.
Side by side brewing.
6g / 400ml glazed ceramic pot.
6g / 400ml Zini yixingpot.
3m @ 100C
I decided to try the affinity with the Ziniclay. But to no avail, sofar the only tea suiting my tastebuds with ziniclay is ripe pu-erh. Gone was the creamy complex notes of cocoa, replaced by a slightly burnt aroma although with a nice aftertaste.
The ceramic pot performed better. Creamy cocoa. A very complex flavour. A bit on the light side. Will up the amount of leaf next try.
perhaps 6g / 200ml with a shorter steeping? 1-2m?
If anyone has some experience with suiting tea for ziniclay (purplebrown yixing) feel free to share.
