Creature of Habit

I have realized that I am very much a creature of habit when it comes to tea preparation. Some would call me O.C.D while others might call it methodical. The teaware that I use is directly correlated to the type of tea that I am making. After making this realization, I began keeping a chart to see exactly what my habits are. The perceived culture of the tea seems to have a lot to do with it.


Teaware Tea Type
Kyusu Sencha
Fish Patterned Gaiwan Puerh
Houjin Gyokuro
Testubin Genmaicha, Kyobancha, Houjicha
Glass Teapot Silver Needle, White Peony, Dragonwell, Flowering Teas
White Gaiwan Oolong
Porcelain Teapot Black Teas
Mug and Mesh Infuser Flavored Teas

I did not count yixing teapots since they are meant to be used with the same tea all of the time. Oddly enough, I'm not nearly as picky about which teacup I use. Are you a creature of habit too? I'd love to hear about it!
