Tea bowls are like mugs only better and somehow more spiritual. Drinking a hot beverage with no handle tells the world that you have time. Time to wait for the hot beverage to cool down so that you can pick it up without burning your hands. Tea Bowls speak of a different time. A time when there was time to spend time, timelessly being totally present but now that time has passed and most tea bowls end up with a cactus in them because their owners don’t have the time to wait for the hot beverage to cool down enough to pick them up to drink from. Tea bowls are also a bit Asian and can make you feel like Bruce Lee or Buddha or Yoda giving sage advice to a young Luke Skywalker but with burnt fingers. Some people drink coffee in tea bowls too, this lets people know that they are fast and efficient but also calm and awakened. This is basically racist. Like lighting incense in a toilet, the smoke conceals their bullshit. If a mug is just a tea bowl with a handle maybe you're just an ape with pants on?
