Being from the South, we drink lots of tea. It’s not normally hot tea mind you; we prefer the cold sweetened type. If you are more into hot tea or at least want to brew your smaller pot of hot tea to turn into iced tea later, here is a way to do it without having to get loose tea leaves stuck to your tongue
This is the most awesome tea infuser ever and it looks like a space capsule with an astronaut. The astronaut is in a space suit and is tethered to the capsule by a small stainless steel chain.
The astronaut weight holds onto the side of your pot or cup so you don’t lose the chain into the hot liquid. To open the capsule, you simply twist the base off and fill it with loose tea leaves. You can pick one up at ThinkGeek for $9.99.
