You'll be pleased to know that it IS possible to put a cold cup of tea on an oil-filled heater and have it warmed up till a) the cup is darn hot to hold, and b) the tea is hot enough that it could no longer be categorised as i) cold, or ii) lukewarm. It's debatable that it would be listed as hot, but, still pleasantly warm.
Yay for dual-use appliances! ;-)
