  1. This cup is so cute….

  2. er, i just loop it once around the mug handle…

  3. oops. my tea bag string just went diving with my green tea bag too…
    Truly a smart and simple design. What took you so long?

  4. OMG I need this cup!



  5. All I am drinking right now is loose leaf but this mug has inspired me to buy some bagged tea.

  6. Of course, tea should never be brewed or drunk like this. Proper tea should always be brewed in a teapot…. :-)

  7. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tea cup but where can you actually buy them,I think this would be an awesome gift for preople who love their teas, I probably would like to get a couple of sets of them.

  8. looks like a tooth. kinda creepy O_O

  9. OMG! Finally there is a tea mug catch my eyes. I got to put this onto my wishlist! So clever, simple and nice! Available in market?

  10. I got 2 for my friend who loves drinking tea. And she loves it so much.

    Here is the website I got it from.


  11. well, i just press the ‘paper’ with my thumb or any finger to the table…

  12. It’s kind of a pointless design, really. As someone else already pointed out, you can just ***Loop The String Around The Handle***.

    Adding the notch is just a superfluous feature that detracts from the aesthetics and adds a piece that could easily be damaged or break off.

    It may the novelty to invoke the response “Oh, isn’t that clever”, but a little thought shows that its an unnecessary feature. I’m sure that anyone that drinks tea using teabags has long realized the string around the handle trick.

  13. Simply simple :)

  14. I have been looking for something like this! I hate it when the tea label falls in the cup when you are pouring the tea.

  15. This may be smart until the little tooth breaks off then you have a drinking hazard. I agree with some of the folks above: tie it around the handle or brew it properly in a pot.

  16. this is a look like tooth.

  17. Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really
    useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to
    give something back and help others like you aided me.

  18. Where can I buy this!!!
