Definitely go loose leaf.

For the tea brewing
This teapot is nice. I also like this style of in-cup infuser - both give the tea a reasonable amount of room to expand.

I would recommend starting with samples - What-Cha do two sample sets - one for a range of blacks, greens and oolongs; and the other just for Taiwan oolongs. They are in the UK and ship quickly. Linky if you're interested

I would probably recommend starting with oolong - iirc roasted have a lower caffeine content, but you'd need to check. Based on what you've said I think there are quite a few oolongs you will enjoy.

Adagio do some flavoured teas which might be worth looking into, too.

My understanding re caffeine in tea is that per-cup it has less than coffee, and one of the other compounds in it (l-theanine?) makes it less buzzy. I've also read - but am not sure how true it is - that if you re-brew with the same leaves each subsequent brew has a bit less caffeine than the previous one.

Beyond that I can't comment on the caffeine content, as caffeine doesn't much affect me (something which I'm incredibly pleased about, as I do have periods of suffering from anxiety and tea helps calm me).

My favourite western-style teapot is the Hario Maru. The Ikea Riklig mentioned earlier also looks nice. IMHO the most important thing about glass pots, if you go for one, is that they are easy to clean: No bamboo parts, and no curvy spouts.

Hario's pots are my favorite. This 700ml pot is great, and so is this 450ml version if you prefer. They have some even smaller pots as well.

u/jarvis400 · 3 pointsr/tea

I always recommend Japanese Hario Maru teapots, as I feel that they are relly well designed and made.

The infuser basket is big and easily removed when the steeping is done. It pours well without dribble and the short lip is not as frail as a long glass spout. The whole thing is easily washed. They come in three sizes.

u/tppytel · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Yeah, the process is fun. :) I have one of these teapots, which is the perfect size for 3-4 servings, along with some simple Japanese ceramic teacups. Nothing fancy (maybe $25 all told) but Asian green teas aren't meant to be drunk in huge American mugs. If you have a decent digital thermometer then that helps to dial in your temps/timings.

u/RebuildMode- · 2 pointsr/tea

Hario. I own this particular size (450 ml), and it's perfect for 1 big cup or 2 smaller cups. The glass will get hot where the tea contacts it, but the handle has never gotten hot on me. It pours really well and is easy to clean too -- always a plus at work.

u/Su_toL · 2 pointsr/tea

Not quite sure if this is what you meant, but I have this teapot (around the size you mentioned, 450ml is ~15.5oz) which has a removable mesh strainer and it's pretty sweet: https://www.amazon.com/Hario-Chacha-Kyusu-Maru-450ml/dp/B0006HINDI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1493529901&sr=8-2&keywords=kyusu+teapot

Pretty sure that pot has been recommended here before. Not sure as far as a plain old infuser, but anything you can get that gives more room for the tea leaves to expand would be best!

u/simsoy · 2 pointsr/tea

I use electric and a traditional teapot or gaiwan. The only problem I can see you running into with the kettle being your teapot is that getting the leaves out might be hard (no basket filter) or that the left over flavoring might seep into the water for your next brew. Unless the kettle is dishwasher safe that might present an issue.

this teapot might be ideal for you. It's high quality, inexpensive and small. Good for reseeping tea.

Is something like [this Hario kyusu] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006HINDI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_AvJgVokcDe4Tk) what you're looking for? I recently bought one and absolutely love it. The infuser is removable so I just use it as a strainer to avoid that metallic taste. Works wonderfully and at $14 it's a steal.

u/knoxawe · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

You should try one of the many mug strainers. They sell them all over the place. You said you were in Canada so you could try DavidsTea, Teavana/Starbucks, or even Chapters has some. They allow for more room than a tea ball (which I also hate) but allow for less than a pot.

You could also try just getting a smaller pot. I use this teapot as one of my smaller ones. The Hario pots are pretty amazing plus it's nice to see your tea brew in the glass. Some people don't like glass teapots though.

[This] (http://www.happymugcoffee.com/darktea/213-pu-erh-bird-nest-china.html?ps_full_site=1) tea. I ordered their gyokuro, keemun Mao feng, Jasmine pearls, gf oolong, and Taiwan high mountain as well if you have any input on those.

Also ordered [this] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0006HINDI/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=A3TCNCNGLOHBSA&psc=1) and [these] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IM42AZ4/ref=pd_aw_fbt_79_img_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=BRN3K6M22VSK4D1DXZ8E). Any good as far as you know? I mostly drink and roast coffee but wanted to branch out.

u/LilWhipperSnapper · 1 pointr/hiphopheads

It depends what you are interested in. Loose leaf is definitely the way to go, all you need is a teapot like this and something to heat the water in. For the teas themselves, r/tea has a list of vendors that covers many different areas. r/tea can be a great resource in general, there are tons of super knowledgeable people for each kind of tea and there are multiple people in the industry there. What-Cha is very well liked and has a variety of teas from all over, they are definitely a good place to order from for the first time. They have an intro to tea collection, though I feel that a white tea like this one should be included in it.

So I currently have 2 teapots; one is about 450ml and was a second-hand gift, but sadly it's too small to fit my infuser basket in. The other one is a fancier porcelain one, but the issue is that it's a litre. My infuser basket fits great, but unless I fill it rather full (900 or 1000ml of water), it doesn't work amazingly because it's one of those taller, thinner ones.

After browsing the sub I found http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hario-Stainless-Glass-Teapot-Infuser/dp/B0006HINDI/ (which is 450ml) and it seems to have a much bigger infuser basket than I currently have. I really want to try gongfu, too...blah, I'm going to end up with far too many teapots at this rate.
