Gift Guide Age Recommendation: 14+
Have you ever, accidentally of course, pulled too hard on a tea bag while unwrapping it and discovered that the tag on the string came off? Or, have you discovered a fabulous tea that does not have a string attached to it? You can, of course, fish out the tea bags with a spoon and dispose of the tea bag.
But, what if you want to treat yourself? What if you want to reuse the tea bag for a second cup (Teatulia teas are great for this)? These fantastic tea tongs are a cute, and practical, way to deal with the tea bag. The tongs are great at getting the bag out of the tea and the little cozy will hold your tea bag until you are ready to reuse. Just be sure not to squeeze the tea bag too hard – if you do, the stewed/bitter tea will be released into the cup. A gentle removal will leave your palette much happier!
I think this would be a great gift for a co-worker who likes to sip tea all day long. Or, you could gift this to the college student who likes to drink tea while studying/relaxing. Really, any tea drinker who uses bagged teas can use this and appreciate its practicality. The package is a lot bigger than the tea tongs. So, if you decide to do a tea themed stocking for a family member, you would need to remove the tongs from their package to get them into a stocking.
