I am absolutely in love with my HOT GLASS SYSTEM 130 ML / 5 OZ Double Wall Tea Glass with Permanent Filter and Hat. Purchased at Wing Hop Fung in Los Angeles’s China Town at nice discount, this is by far the best single serving method I have come across to prepare my fine Chinese teas. All the beauty and convenience of a double wall glass with the performance of a gaiwan. It’s simply genius in design and I can’t say more positive things about it. I was happy to see David at Verdant is carrying their filter system as part of his 2012 X-mas gift set. Good choice I say!

Cool. Bodum has one too, but I think it’s a bit larger. Out of curiosity, how much as this?

About $20 at Amazon. I got mine for I think $15 locally. I’ve broken more Bodum glasses than I care to mention. Wanted to try something else, plus it doesn’t have that weird silicon plug at the bottom.

Recovering coffee drinker. I prefer green tea varieties with a focus on high theanine content.

I generally make my teas using a 10 oz. double wall glass tumbler. Alternately I sometimes use a smaller 8 oz. glass tea infuser. More recently I’Ive fallen in love with a little 5 oz. double wall glass w/ filter kit from Finum. It’s kinda awesome. I prepare the occasional Black or Oolong teas mostly in a Yixing clay or porcelain teapot. I’ve been known to bust out the Gaiwan every now and then too. Basically whatever catches my fancy.

My rating system:

I’ve never really felt compelled to include a rating guide here, but upon reflection I noticed something; I think I’ve subconsciously been rating teas like my papers were graded when I was a kid in school. Do with it what you will.

90-100 = A
80-89 = B
70-79 = C
60-69 = D
<59 = F(ail)

I can quit any time.
