I go back to Hong Kong during holidays (Christmas, Easter, Summer) so I have access to REAL tea!! Also, my parents are in Hong Kong and I get them to send over supplies all the time.
With my Tie Kuan Yin, I don't drink the first steeping. The teashop that I go to in Hong Kong says that you only drink the second and third steeping. Apparently, the first steeping is used to wash the cup. What are your thoughts on this?
