brb, ice pack for hands

 

It took a little practice for me to hold the lid just right and to pour with a sharper angle than you think you would need so the tea exits out of the small slot you create in a smooth stream.  But I still had some minor burns using it.  

I seek to have warm water for my delicate greens & whites. But, in the event I do suffer minor burns ( or major!), I've gottongue_smile.gif 24 Aloe Vera Plants inside the living room.

Got this on the same day as the gaiwan but haven't opened it up yet. $6 seemed like a deal.

Do you guys like using teapots opposed to a single serving cup? 

 

sometimes I just wish I had a giant cup to drink my tea in lol 

 

I don't have room on my desk for the teapot and cup :(

I love having wood in my day/night...it can be very pleasing; calming.

Nice little set up there, Pudu.  Beginning to want more clear tea glassware so I can better see the color of the tea I brew, other than looking at the top of my white ceramic cups.

This is a fascinating thing to see. At work, not wanting to risk my Gaiwans to accidents, I'd use a clear Bodum tea cup in clear acrylic with a removable wire basket. Although, I'd seen the different teas steep a thousand times, I'd still watch each time with fascination...it's beautiful! I'd drink Green tea one day, S. African Red Bush (Rooibos) the next and so on...

Glassware is really nice but it never seems to hold heat well

Sippin' in Southern California I guess I hadn't really noticed. blink.gif

In Ohio during the winter and a poorly insulated room, it's pretty easy to tell.
