Animal Tea Infuser Sea Creatures

Animal-shaped steeping device

They take tea seriously (hence the tea ceremony) but that doesn't mean the Japanese don't also see a playful side to it. Especially when it comes to black tea, there are all kinds of fun accessories on the market. But perhaps none is more original than the Animal Tea Infuser Sea Creatures, a series of sea animal-shaped containers for steeping tea leaves. If you find regular egg-shaped infusers boring, these colorful creatures are exactly what you need!

The Animal Tea Infuser Sea Creatures is available in four designs: king penguin, spotted seal, green sea turtle, and the Asian small-clawed otter. All are creatures that live both in and out of water, so look perfectly natural rising up from your cup of tea. The infusers open so you can fill them with tea leaves, and are extremely tolerant to temperature, resisting anything between 20 and 230°C (-4 and 446°F). They are made of soft silicone and safe to use in your microwave and dishwasher. And did we mention that they look such fun climbing up the side of your cup?
