Teatime is easier and a pinch more amusing with the Magisso Cherry Blossom Tipping Teacup. Recognized by many design awards including the 2011 Reddot, this simple yet ingenious design streamlines brewing and drinking tea into one fluid task. Simply put loose tea in the strainer, fill with water up to the tea leaves, allow to steep and tilt the cup the opposite direction once you have achieved your desired strength. Voilà; you now hold a perfectly-brewed single serving of tea. Did we mention it's also dishwasher safe? Now available in a fun and fresh green hue, this cute and clever little creation will be a favorite among many.
I like things that are not ordinary so everything about this is interesting. I haven't used it yet but put in the screen and think it will stay.
Great if you don't want to make a whole pot of loose tea, or if you want to brew it in the car on the way to work. Tea to go. Tea bags are quick but the better flavors are loose, so now I will get back to those in my new cup. So inventive and clever and different from the usual.
