Artful teabags

Monday, May 9, 2011

Brilliant! How clever are those teabag coasters? I bet I'm not the only one who ends up having half-dried tea puddles on the cafe table. Go on, spill the beans! Those beautifully designed teabag coasters turn into awesome patterns as soon as you place the used teagbag on them! I think those would put me off coffee forever. Aren't they pretty?

P.S: Lately I'm loving Kusmi caramel tea. It's delicious. What's your favourite tea? I would love to try it :)

Tea is already so soothing and relaxing. These beautiful teabags make drinking tea even more fulfilling. Or not. Because I may hesitate using them. Too pretty!

Very clever. A must especially when you are drinking from a mug.

Mmm...caramel tea sounds perfect. I'm not a regular tea drinker, but I'm trying to change that. Recently, I tried an orange ginger tea that I liked. Not sure if orange and ginger are one of those ubiquitous tea combos or not, but it tasted great anyway!

My goodness, absolutely adorable AND useful!

My favorite tea is one that I just tried yesterday. It's called Sleepy Time tea and it has camomile in it.

I also enjoy a tea called Pleine Lune from the Mariage Freres in Paris! I like the unique flavors.

Have you seen the teacups that get designs from tea stains?

Neat, I'm always looking for a place to drop the teabag. I like my Sleepy Time Tea and I like steeping loose leaf Mint & Rooibos teas together.
