The teapot has a small opening with notches to allow an infusion drop by drop.

It is the set of choice for tea tasters all over the world.

The art of  tea tasting:

Before the time of infusion, tea is appreciated, judged with the eye and, during the tasting session, all the senses are awake...

Some points are essential: the appearance of the leaves and the liquor they produce, their flavour and their aromas.

1- The dry leaves are visually evaluated: the colour of the leaves, their sizes, shape, regularity and beauty. All these criteria have their importance. The chosen leaves are then smoked.

2- Then we infuse the leaves and again, the eye judges the colour, the brightness, the appearance of the liquor.

3- Finally, smell and taste intervene to distinguish roundness, softness, strength, astringency, aromas ...

Then, we use retronasal olfaction : it is the impressions collected when you suck the liquor, hold it in the mouth and exhale the air through the nose; the aromas are then perceived differently.

That's when we begin to practice distinguishing the 5 basic tastes: bitterness, sourness, saltiness, sweetness and unami (term used in tasting that comes from the Japanese and can be translated as 'pleasant savoury taste).

We then have to know how to recognize and express the sensations and impressions felt when tasting tea.

The universe of aromas is infinite: vegetal, woody, flowery etc ...

Note: The tasting spoon is not included in the Dammann set.
