it makes a mess.
or am i blowing too hard?
It's purely psycholoigcal
the power of my degree tells me that blowing over it causes the bernoulli effect. this lowers the air pressure of the air being blown and makes it easier for the tea to evaporate and thus cool.
ehwhat is right though. not much.
that takes me back
1) the cold air gets heated by the tea, making the tea less hot
2) the disturbance to the surface increases its surface area, meaning that it heats up more air
and it probably moves the tea around a bit, making the hot tea at the bottom come to te surface
i was only able to go a day and a half before logging back on.
Though its best to blow on the tea just as you pour it into your mouth so that you are blowing on less tea by the time it hits your tongue and preventing it from burning you. This is how I drink really hot tea.
That 0.000223? reduction makes all the difference.
than leaving it on the table, well if you hold the mug that is, rather than the handle.
