Hi, I might as well have a brief introduction while I'm here. I've started getting into tea "seriously" around a month or so ago after I've read about how terrible Lipton supposedly is. Irish Breakfast has made me feel in a way I have never felt before about a beverage, and I'm slowly branching out to other flavors and such.
In a couple weeks I'm heading out to college! This is great and all, but it's presenting some interesting problems when it comes to getting me my daily tea intake. For one thing, I can't have anything with an "exposed heating element" in my room (A hot pad is okay, a crock pot is okay, but a toaster is not).
There is a mini-kitchen in the dorm, but I'm not sure how far it is from my room, and since I expect to make tea mainly for myself, going back and forth seems like a bit of a hassle.
So my question to you, my soon-to-be-friends, is how can I get the best situation possible with minimal hassle? I think a coffee machine or hot water dispenser would be best for my room, with the kitchen being for cleaning my mesh cage for the leaves and my mug. But what do you folks say?
