2. Sometimes a wine glass :-D I don't notice much difference between a wine glass and a glass mug. But a wine glass makes the tea session feel special!
3. Sometimes a very small glass. This 2 oz. double layer glass from Amazon is very cute. I use it for everything, tea, coffee, grand marneir... It's great for ball-shaped tea that's ready to sink to the bottom.
4. Sometimes a shot glass. Still looking for a tall shot glass for Tai Pin Hou Kui!
5. In a bowl - I like this way too and like holding a tea bowl, easy and comfortable...
6. In a gaiwan - I like it, but then I would need to use both of my hands, while glass/tea bowl requires only one hand :-D But I like gaiwan for Long Jing, which typically has leaves floated on the surface, and you can always use gaiwan lid to wave away the leaves.
7. In a yixing - I rarely used a yixing for green tea...
...until I got this cutest Duan Ni teapot. Its 180ml volume and narrow spout makes it insuitalbe for most of my oolong or sheng puerh. I am worried red tea would stain Duan Yi to a dirty color. As for shu puerh, I won't use any cute teapot for shu! It's very rare that I would change my drinking habit to fit a vessel. But that happens!
8. In a kyusu - I rarely use a kyusu for Chinese green tea, mainly because I love glass vessels. I would love to have a few more porcelain kyusu between 150ml and 250ml though. Currently I have a few above 300ml. I love them but seldom really use them.
9. In a water bottle - I do it a lot in summer, mostly with cold water, and sometimes warm water in a heat-tolerant bottle.
10. For few times when the tea should be drained after each infusion, without a gaiwan or teapot, I did this too... in a very clumsy way...
How about you? :-D
