Over the past year, I’ve received some interesting tea-related gifts from friends which have made tea-drinking at home so much more fun. I thought I’d share some of these knick-knacks with you.
This tea caddy spoon is from my friend Eva, who exclaimed that this spoon from T2 was “very very expensive” for something made in China. I appreciate her generous gesture. Aren’t those floral details gorgeous?
The toy in question is actually the cutesy tea leaf infuser thing sticking out of the mug. Out of water, it looks like this. Thank you Joelee Brooklyn Babe for this! As for the mug – I actually bought this for myself (great for moody days) and can be purchased at the funky Tea Appreciation Society online store.
Sweet Lin-Li got this super adorbs Agatha’s Bester tea filter for me during her trip in London last year. Looking at it through this mug can get pretty trippy (it starts reading “TEEEEEEEEEEEA” after a while due to refraction of light).
Last but not least, my husband recently brought this back from his trip from Amsterdam. A space-age turquiose (my favourite colour) tea egg from AdHoc – it is a very therapeutic, defying-gravity sort of experience stirring this thing around but one has to be careful of spillage.
How about you? What are some of your favourite tea accessories?
