One of our most popular articles of all time was our share of the Fogring. The little donut shaped device would fit into a tea cup and used ultrasound while it floated on water to become a humidifier. The little ideas that fit in or relate to a tea cup definitely astound and inspire us. That’s why this invention by Samir Sufi made us jump from our seats.
The Tea Cup SlingsHOT takes a traditional tea cup and turns into a marvel of usability. Any tea lover will tell you one of the greatest frustrations with enjoying the warm beverage is making sure to get every inch of taste from a tea bag along with getting rid of the soaked bag as well. Usually it finds us pressing a spoon against the outer walls of a teacup while the bag oozes out it’s deliciousness, but that get’s tiresome.
Luckily the Tea Cup SlingsHOT solves all of that. A little funnel near the top of the cup affixed to the handle lets you grip back the tea cup string and squeeze out every drop of the goodness. Also while you’re enjoying your tea it acts as a vessel to keep the bag in place so you can easily dump it out afterward.
People battle with tea bags everyday, tags falling in the cup, drips making their way onto countertops and the overall annoyance. This tea cup will offer a little bit of joy for those dealing with those issues now and in the future.
