What sort of flavour profile does the Balhyocha have? It seems to brew like roasted oolong, pu erh or black tea!

I must confess, my personal tea journey started with some white tea teabags and half an episode of the Dr. Oz Show. 

I was keen to try loose leaf tea and learn about these mysterious "white", "puerh" and "oolong" teas that I had no idea existed. Dr. Oz made me feel even better about doing it because of the prospect of loosing weight and being so much healthier! 

However, over a year later, a lot of tea and a lot of reading - I am very much against promoting the amazing health effects that tea supposedly provides. Yes, I feel happier drinking tea, because it is an uplifting and tasty drink, there is always an extra spring in my step after a tea session, and perhaps I am taking in more vitamins/minerals and other healthy compounds than before as a result, but by no means am I skinnier and by no means has my health dramatically improved in any way. Mentally I am more healthy because I have a fun and engaging hobby, that is about it!

Thanks so much for sharing! We all start our journey somewhere and I'm so glad that you decided to go further down the rabbit hole of tea :)

I have one tea yixing pot and I researched this a good bit because its a difficult subject with no proper right answer. This the method I chose, partly suggested by a tea friend. I think you need to take age into account for how much cleaning you want to do before the tea seasoning. I boiled mine for 20 minutes on a slow boil and I watched it carefully to ensure nothing was broken, then left it sitting there until it cooled to room temperature. Then I brewed tea in it and poured enough into a bowl to cover the tea pot, poured the tea leaves into the water and sat the pot in there until cooled to room temperature with the lid off. Then rinsed with boiling water, allowed to totally air dry and used it! :)

I started watching these videos very much at the beginning, I was in my 2nd year of secondary school I think. I am now half way through my 3rd year of chemistry in college and I owe quite a huge debt to all of the people who have made these videos a reality. The enthusiasm of the professor and his colleagues has instilled in myself, a sense of joy and wonder at the marvel that is chemistry. Thank you so much for the wonderful videos, the knowledge bestowed upon the viewers and most of all, the sheer fun of it all! Keep up the good work, and hopefully chemistry can inspire many more people!
