Tea Tie Cup Keeps Your Teabag Securely in Place

by Chris B.

I’m not a tea drinker, Mountain Dew is my beverage of choice. However, I do live with a couple of people who love them some tea. Seriously, I think there’s an entire cabinet just dedicated to the stuff.

One thing I’ve always thought strange was how the little paper bit just dangled off of the side of the mug. It’s practically begging to slip into your piping hot water, thus forcing you to fish it out and make a small mess. There are plenty of creative solutions, I’m sure, but here’s one that I’ve not seen.

This $25 Tie Tea Cup by designer George Lee has two special notches in the lip. You can use these to wrap the string around, securing the teabag in its place. Seems like a simple enough concept. I have to say though, the price does seem a little off-putting. I mean, if you’re someone that drinks tea often enough to warrant this purchase, you’ll probably want to buy a set of four, but I can’t imagine paying a hundred bucks simply so your teabag stays where it should.

    My friend got one of this cup. She loves it a lot. I think I’m going to get a few for my family’s christmas gift.

    Cleaver. Simple. Pretty. Form and function come together nicely. I have seen this in person at a design show. I am surprised how designer have such tiny cuts done so well. The porcelain, ceramic, or glass opening are very difficult made if you are in this field. Well done!! $25? Trust me. If you give a shop 100 bucks, they might still can’t make it so tiny and clean.

    Clever, yes. But I accomplish the same thing by looping the tag string around the handle of any ordinary mug.
