you get the basic equipment, you may want other accessories to make your
tea experience even more satisfying. Some of the most useful are:
2. Dripless teapot
gadget to fix that drippy spout:
5. Kettle scale collector because rinsing one off is much easier than periodically descaling the kettle - I got mine, a roll of fine stainless steel wire mesh by Cadnit of Fox Run Craftsmen, from a local kitchen gadget shop for US$2.30.
6. Digital scale - ideally, loose tea is measured by weight in grams, not by volume, because measuring spoons can't be accurate due to the variety of dry leaf sizes, but most people prefer to use a spoon instead of a scale. However, there are tea leaves that just won't fit into a spoon neatly at which point you may get frustrated enough to be motivated to buy a scale. An excellent reference website is: http://www.digitalscale.com.
