A Tea Addict's Journal

There was this wonderful looking kama in my room at the hotel we were staying (no, we were not in Japan)

But some people decided to use it as a candle holder

Which is really quite unfortunate, because the kama itself is rather nice. I, for one, won’t mind having one, although the ones shaped like these are almost impossible to use for my kind of tea making. Subsitute it for a tetsubin though….. oh, the endless possibilities.

    Very nice! I just have a cheap iron warmer from enjoyingtea.com. You could always ask the hotel manager how much they’d want for it. Everything’s for sale at the right price. A friend of mine who used to work at Disney (Orlando) saw a guest talking to one of the restaurant managers trying to buy a carved tiki column from one of the restaurants in the park. The column was gone the next day. 🙂

    Yeah, I briefly considered it, but I can probably buy one for under $200 and without having to deal with all the hassle of removing the wax….
