Tea steeping is an art form

OK, so all of you tea drinkers know there’s nothing more annoying than trying to get the perfect cup of tea time after time. There’s a fine line to steep it just so; too long and its bitter but to short and it’s watery and flavorless.

How many times have I set my tea to steep and got distracted doing something else? And I don’t know about you but I hate standing there dipping and bobbing waiting for the perfect tea. Unless I set an egg timer to go off or stand there hovering, there’s no telling what kind of cup I am going to wind up with. Tea steeping is an art form!

Well I have met the Picasso of tea steeping; the penguin tea timer.

This little guy not only times your perfect steeped tea but….wait for it….he PULLS your tea bag out when it’s ready. I know, eh!?!?!?!? So, even if you don’t hear the timer when it goes off, you will still be guaranteed perfectly brewed tea every time!

The only down side is that it only works with tea bags and not the metal infusers.

Seriously, I could just watch this little guy bob all day long. I’ve suddenly become a huge tea drinker because he just…I don’t know…makes me smile! Isn’t he adorable?!?!

Check this out! Someone posted a YouTube video of the little devil in action (I know?!?! It’s the cutest thing EVER…LOVE IT!?!?!) The real action happens at 0:48 – watch for it!!!


It’s a great gift idea for the tea drinker in your family. You can get yours from Amazon (although Amazon says it is currently unavailable right now) or from As Seen On TV Guys.com for $29.95.

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

How do you steep your tea? Any neat gadgets you’ve found that make life easier?
