Sourcing tea-tables

by MEversbergII » Apr 18th 13 3:24 pm

Reading the "Supporting Teaware" thread, I realized it's time for me to get a tea table.

I've looked around in the past online, but shipping from Asia for something that bulky is a killer - might as well get something people can vouch for the quality on.

Particularly, I'd like one with a drain, to catch warming water and whatnot. Suggestions?

There are other set ups than tea tables. I once used tea tables but I now prefer the more traditional set up of a tea boat for the pot, an old plate (i use Qing Dynasty blue and white plates, which can be still found for very reasonable prices on ebay) for the cups, and a waste water container, in which the water from the tea boat and spilled water of the plate are emptied into.
