    At a mere 65 degrees over ambient this rig looks insufficient to make tea (you should get the water to boiling to help it brew properly), unless it's summer and room temperature gets up to 35 that is.

    When will a system get around to using heat more efficiently (i.e. producing a constant stream of tea)?

    On a less irrelevant note - is the upsidedown layout more common these days? It looked intriguing
