The tea gadgets just keep on coming. It seems that there are more and more gizmos hitting the market every day and, as always, they are something of a mixed bag. Some of them can be quite useful while others are just plain odd, to say the least. For one of our previous articles about this sort of thing, click here.
While we’re on the subject of just plain odd tea gadgets, be sure to take a look at these decidedly offbeat pieces of teaware. Tea cups and saucers with fingers and mouths may not be for everyone and you can say what you want about them but you sure can’t deny that they’re different.
For a tea cup of a totally different sort altogether, check out this Tea Cup dog bed that was recently featured at the A Quiet Tea Spot site. For the tea loving dog (or cat, for that matter) owner who has absolutely everything, here it is.
Speaking of tea cups – and I believe we were – here’s yet another of a number of variations that tackle the age old problem of how to keep that pesky tea bag string from falling into your tea. Well, actually, you could just drink loose-leaf tea and never have to worry about that problem. But if it’s tea bags you must have, these tea cups with built in slots for your string oughta do the trick.
What about tea bag lampshades, you say? Well, what about them? Here’s an article about a Pennsylvania artist who actually makes lampshades out of tea bags. Believe it or not.
If it’s perfection you seek and you’d like to get up close and personal with your tea – black tea, to be specific – you might want to try this Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask, from Sephora.
Last up, adorn your computer desk with this Asian Bamboo Tea Room Mousepad.
