Mmmm, something like this might make a nice teaboat.
but I can't find it on your site. Is it sold?
Currently I am using a pie plate, which works quite nicely: low sides, flat bottom, about 9" to 10" in diameter. But it lacks panache ... and the flared sides make it hard to sidle up to my Zojirushi.
Does anyone else look at these ceramic pieces and think "teaboat
Straight sides so it can get close to my Zojirushi, dishwasher safe or at least very impermeable to constant tea spills and generally splashing around. If tea stains would make it prettier over time, that would also be a plus.
This one draws too much attention to itself:
This shape is nice for basting the teapot, but not good for holding cups and catching tea slobber and spills:
And really it should have something in the center to hold the pot up out of the water.
Does anyone else feel the need for a teaboat? What design features?
