Well, now people have caught onto why there is such a thing as a tea boat!

my bathroom is an awfully boring place to drink tea though. too much white porcelain and tile with no windows.

I am going to make a combination tea/steam room. Bunch of people sitting around in robes, drinking hot puer, and sweating like crazy. Sounds great

For a while I have been considering buying a humidifier that will live in my tea area, especially for these bone-dry winter months. I wonder how effective it could actually be.
