Tea Tie Cup Keeps Your Teabag Securely in Place

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 12, 2010


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.
