Lake Ainsworth is a freshwater lake in Australia surrounded by tea trees, the surrounding water absorbs the tannins from the tree roots and fallen leaves making it, essentially a giant herbal tea bath. The Japanese are also huge advocates of tea baths, often creating hot pools of Green tea to be used communally for the ultimate rejuvenation.
