Have you heard about the Tea Bag Buddy yet? I just discovered it last week, and it's already claimed the top spot on my holiday wish list!
I drink a lot of tea, so I'm definitely familiar with some of the little frustrations that come with brewing a perfect cup of tea. I often lose the string inside my cup or my tea will get cold while I'm waiting for it to steep. The worst annoyance is when I make a huge mess trying to squeeze the water out of my tea bag. I don't know what proper protocol is, but I usually place my tea bag on a spoon and wrap its string tightly around it to squeeze out the excess water. Not the easiest maneuver, and it almost always makes a gigantic mess.
When I saw this, I knew that the Tea Bag Buddy was destined to become a new friend of mine.
How awesome is that? It will hold my string for me, trap the steam in to keep my cup of tea at the perfect temperature for brewing, AND provide me with a cool and clean way to get the excess water out of my tea bag? Wow! I'm sold! It also works just as well if you want to use it with a teapot instead of a mug or cup, and the 100$ silicone insures that you won't burn your fingers while disposing of your used tea bag.
The only problem I'm going to have with the Tea Bag Buddy is deciding which color to choose!
