83

Additional notes. I brewed it in a Banko-yaki Kyusu, and it mellowed it out and astringency is gone. I would rate it much higher using this particular teaware but I know some may not have it so I will leave the rating at 83.

Banko-yaki Kyusu 150ml, 4-5g, three steeps: 180°F for 1.5min, 203° F for 30 sec, 212° F for 1.5min.

I hope you are all well!

Flavors: Toasted Rice, Umami, Vegetal

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 30 sec 5 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

I have a banko-yaki kyusu arriving today!

Martin Bednář

Now I want one too!

Martin, that particular clay always seems to smooth out excess astringency in sencha… Etc. I hope you can get one :D

Evol Ving Ness

Omg, more tea ware that I need! You people!

Evol Ving Ness

This one is very lovely. Except for the $500 USD part.

Evol Ving Ness

What kinds did you get, Kawaii and Cameron?

Evol Ving Ness

Beautiful! And it is not $500. YOu’ll have to let us know how (differently?) the tea tastes when you start using it. Is it only used for green tea? Only sencha?

Cameron B.

I generally only use my kyusu for Japanese teas, and 90% of the time it’s sencha. But I have steeped wakocha, hojicha, etc. in them before!

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, you are very sophisticated, Cameron :)

Also, this tezumi is a quite a find. I’ve been ogling all the things, but seriously, a kyusu is likely not a priority for me though I do have some sencha that needs saving.

Cameron B.

I know, they’re so dangerous! The shipping is quite high though, which keeps me from making another order.

Kawaii433

Nice, Cameron B. :)

Evol Ving Ness I’ve had this one for many years before I got into Chinese teaware but I did just recently get an inexpensive banko houhin because apparently, we can’t have too much teaware >.< haha. https://www.yuuki-cha.com/ougi-gata-houhin-banko-teapot?search=Ougi%20Gata%20Banko%20Yaki%20Houhin%20Teapot

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Matcha, Gyokuro, Sencha, Genmaicha… Etc. I like all teas: Green, oolong, black & pu’erh (prefer ripe over raw).

Chanoyu (for matcha prep) and Gongfu cha (for other types of tea) are the main ways I prepare my tea (Gaiwan, Yixing teapot, Kyusu). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. This past year, I’ve tried many flavored now because of all of you lol. As long as there aren’t artificial sweeteners, it’s all good.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, 52Teas, Whispering Pines, Bird & Blend, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia.

The flavors I dislike: Artificial sweetener, lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, papaya, honeydew, rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, any mints, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread/pastry, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas unless they are flavored, then I may add a splash of milk.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
