rolling in the dough

by jim109 » Jun 9th, '08, 22:44

Would you consider a Jacuzzi Hydrotherapy Hot
Tub, with illuminated cup holders, to highlight the iced tea in the glassware in the summer and the hot tea in the winter?
Would this be "teaware"? jim

*loves Japanese Maple leaves in teaware*

That piece speaks to me.

I am on my 8th steep of this 5 gram tou cha...seems still going up...not going down yet. I had these tou cha from Special Teas since 1999. I hated them and had no concept of pu (still have none compared to the pu heads around here!)...man, glad I never threw them away. It is still thick and full.

The thing I love about these tou cha is how casually they can be approached. I don't have to think about a thing. Throw it in the gaiwan and pour boiling water on it. I honestly do more than enough thinking about greens and oolongs...I would be overloaded if I had to think too much about pu also right now.

I think I need a pu-butler...someone who take care of all the thinking about pu for me...I could just enjoy it.

GeekgirlUnveiled wrote:Oh man, there's a long list of teaware I'd purchase right now, leading off with some Tokoname. Celadon, definitely, especially cups. I have no chataku, and would love some sakura ones. And I would probably break out the big guns and buy a tea tray that is wood with inlays (mother or pearl or abalone.) I'd also get a nice cabinet to show off my stuff - but I'll probably do that anyways eventually, just haven't found the right one yet. After 2+ years of looking, I'm not sure I will.

:lol:

In my cup: oolong #40 and I'm taking a shot at incorporating flowers from the yard like the boys do.
:wink:

Lovely...and dragons on teaware are a close second to Japanese Maples on teaware in my book.

Hi Tenuki, my wife just ordered a Jacuzzi 335, it does have illuminated cup holders . It will come in 4 weeks after we have the cement pad and the electric done....then the decking. We had an inheritance windfall. Wasn't that the question? " If you were rolling in the dough"??? Will send pics if Salsero comes to take them!! Or, I will try my best!! Thanks, jim

I have a thing for chinese peacocks and fu dogs myself, but haven't seen any good ones on teaware yet. Love the dragons. Besides this cup and the gaiwan, I have two more dragon gaiwans, and a dragon tetsubin with matching cups. :roll: It's a little excessive... :lol:

So then, dragons eat peacocks, foo dogs bite dragons...and I guess peacocks peck the foo dogs...
