    The correct kind of "teapot" has a long crook-neck spout attached near the bottom of the flask, not
    the top, so that any foam or bubbles in the emulsion or glop floats at the top, while the fluid itself
    comes from the bottom. Not too long ago I noted a stainless mfg which still offers one of these,
    what for I really don't know ... certainly not tea! We do have tea parties in this country, but they
    generally involve cracked pots.

    Gentlemen;

    I love a good cup of tea! Earl Gray is a favorite. I have several teapots including Japanese style.

    Now, for those interested, here is the sequence as supplied by Mark. Remember that pouring from opposite corners, as shown, is a required step if you wish good coatings.

    I think you're going to like my method a lot more, Ron! At least you won't have emulsion stuck to your arm hair....

    What is the emulsion speed of Earl Gray? Or is that name especially associated with the Zone System? I'm
    famililar with Middle Gray, but not Earl.

    That will be Earl Grey, not Gray!
