    Cool to see how much she cools the water for the first rinsing…once the leaves are acquainted with the hot water it looks like she poured boiling straight on. Perhaps I’ll need to start cooling off my water a bit more than I do for that initial wash. Thanks for sharing this video David!

    The first thing I thought was “Wow, that’s a huge pile of discarded leaves!” It’s cool to see how much she tosses the water back and forth to cool.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us David. I have to admit I had to watch it more than once because I was distracted by her beautiful teaware.

    I’m going to have to try out this traditional brewing technique once I get a gaiwan.

    Such an interesting video…I was wondering why she was pouring the water back and forth, cooling it definitely makes sense! I doubt I could do this without burning my fingers, but it would be worth it I’ sure!
