Tea time for Jungleland

Jungleland does Teabowls

Jungleland Skates has a tribute page to a spot called the Tea Bowls that was sessioned intermittently from the 70s through the 90s. Like the rest of Jungleland (don’t look you’ll spoil a future post!) it is well thought out and has a slight museum-like air to it. There are videos, video grabs, still shots and a surprising history of the spot. Turns out some richies built an elaborate estate for tea parties and social events in the 1920’s. Part of this estate are these huge reservoir type bowls and a series of aqueducts that must have taken an absurd amount of water to fill. Make sure to watch the video clips. I know you are thinking “Well, that’s going to be some boring ditch footage,” but the clips are short and the action is interesting. One of the bowls is gnarly and deep. The surface is broken up and there are massive piles of dirt to be navigated around. The whole thing is very surreal. It’s hard to imagine why they built such deep pools that were more suitable for scuba diving or holding the Loch Ness Monster than swimming. Also of note are a couple of the amusing “lifestyle” photos. Explore Jungleland Skates Tea Bowls Tribute page.
