This tiny tea light holder might not do any wonders for your tea, but it has got a nifty campfire shape going for it. If anything, it does bring a nice look to the overall setup. Called CampFire, it is designed by Invotis Orange.
Russian artist Dina Belenko obviously has the most intriguing tea time known to man, as evidenced by this set of 8-bit Tea Time. Sugar cubes are arranged in order with a side of tea to create representations of famous 8-bit games like Pacman, Space Invaders and Tetris.
Dried tea leaf paintings by Andrew Gorkovenko make use of tea leaves to tell the origin story of the tea leaves that compose the painting. On canvas, the tea leaves take the shape of the Great Wall of China for representing green tea, or a scene from Sri Lanka to represent black tea.
Now that calendars are no longer essential items, it is nice to see them get creative to stay relevant. Tea calendar from Hälssen & Lyon has a strip of different flavored teas for each day. When the day is done, you could enjoy the strip of tea which they claim comes from “finely flavored tea leaves.” We just hope these strips of tea are resistant to moisture. The calendars weren’t made for commercial use though, and were only intended for the company’s select business partners.
Packed in the size of one cup, these two tea cups are the poor man’s version of the yin and yang of tea. We believe they stand solidly on the purpose of looking cute, with the undertones of a romantic set and little practical use beyond the cute, lovey style. Costs $16.
Designer Gordon Adler made the Tea.tanic tea bag holder to honor the great ship that met tragedy. And what better way to honor its misfortune than to have it hold tea bags and drown in tea cups. We’re not sure if it really is a tribute or an insult, but skip out the name and the sinking ship starts looking good.
There ain’t no better way to make tea this season, than a heart in love. That has to be the most love-filled drink ever, quite like this hyperbole. Costs $15.
Like numerous other artists, Carne Griffiths uses calligraphy ink and graphite to make portraits. The liquid needed however, is replaced by tea, brandy, vodka or whiskey. Images in this set are primarily made using ink and tea, which we guess gives them a distinct flavor.
