In the spirit of misappropriating wares, I present the latest example:
I’m not entirely sure what this thing is. I’m pretty sure I’m not using it right. My guess is that it’s better for cups — putting, say, four small cups on it and then pouring tea into them would be what I think this can be used for, although for that purpose, this thing is slightly too small, unless the cups are tiny.
I tried using it like this yesterday, and it seems too precarious for the pot to sit so high. It does hold a decent amount of tea underneath though, so that when I pour the wash over the pot, it does collect and go right in. That’s almost certainly what the holes are for — some sort of liquid. I just can’t quite figure out what’s supposed to go on top…
The mystery continues
