    Today I tried the experiment nr. 2 from the leaf magazine issue 3, that is heavy showers predicted, and it makes a huge diffrence, I picked a deep dish and put my yixing in there, and I poured the water circulary around the rim, so that hot water can gather at the base of the pot, and I also poured some water over the lid.
    I didn`t use pitcher, I poured directly from the pot, the tea was much more full bodied with a great gan, and parfumed, all in all the was better throughout all the infusions. No heat should escape, so using pitcher and strainer, and thin wide mouth porcelain cups all result in heat loss.
    PS I tried all those experiments, and the best way to prepare for me is sofar, a seasoned yixing, and a bowl and use shower on the lid, Kam from funalliance said the great truth about gong fu method> it is all about high heat brewing and maintainig high heat, the best way is to use a teaboat and shower on the lid, and preferably everything shoul be made out of clay. And also put only as much leaf so that all can open up equally so that the taste becomes smooth, generally 1/4 full with ball shaped oolongs, they can be tricky as they expand a lot
