That’s no moon….It’s a cup of Earl Grey. From craftsman/artist Timo Jousimo, The Death Star Tea Ball is a fully operational tea infuser. It also happens to be formed in the shape of the Star Wars mega-weapon. Personally I like my tea on the dark side. Not sure what that says about me. Unfortunately for the whole world, the tea ball is an unlicensed one-off creation of the artist. Because of licensing agreements he can’t make any for profit without upsetting the lawyers protecting the Lucas brand. “It’s a trap!”
As the artist explains:
“Witness the power of this fully operational teaball!”
Yes, it’s a tea infuser made in the shape of the Death Star. It features two domes, one with the dish for the death ray. Also a simple interlocking mechanism for opening and closing and a bit over thousand 1 mm holes drilled all around it. Diameter is 50 mm, so it’s good for whole pot of tea.
Crafted entirely from 925 silver sheet metal (plus the chain).
Do want. Badly.
