Rich has bought a camera for his Playstation.

In real life, it's roughly seventeen times funnier to watch.

testing the new kettle

(viewed 1166 times)
old kettle started leaking, so we bought one of these to replace it with. boiling too much water is probably one of our top three wastes of energy in the house, so this thingy seemed like a good idea.

water only comes out at around 80°C, which is a little cooler than recommended for black tea. here I have a temperature probe in the teapot, to see how it goes. a cuppa definitely comes out cooler, but it's much closer to the ideal drinking temperature.

next brew will be with the leaky kettle, to see if there's any noticeable improvement in tea quality. if there is, fancy kettle is probably going back and will be replaced by something more wasteful. saving the environment is all well and good, but proper tea is serious matter.
