I have been hungry for knowledge in Chinese tea tasting for sometimes. I always don’t understand why people obsess about Zi Sha Hu tea pot. Today, I learned it from Hojo tea at mid valley. I like them as they are willing to spend time for me. Of course eventually also got me as their happy customer.
I bought Sado red clay tea pot. Reduction tea clay pot and purple clay tea pot. Three different tea pots given different taste from the same tea. Sado tea pot is good to bring out dedicated taste of a tea. Reduction clay brings out the boldness of certain teas and purple clay smoothen tea for light tea taste.
In my case, I like Soda red clay for my Taiwanese oolong, reduction clay for my Tie Guan Yin and purple clay for my Pu-er.
I have started yesterday night using purple clay for Japanese Karigane complimentary provided by Nateli of Hojo Tea. Start marking my intention to learn more on tea tasting as well.
