The Death Star Tea Ball – The Coolest Tea Infuser You Can’t Buy

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.

We’re Going to Need a Bigger Cup – Shark Fin Tea Infuser

Most likely I’m stuck at work at the moment lamenting not being able to cook and eat as I’d like to.  Damn.  In the mean time here’s some silliness to make us both smile.  Enter the shark fin tea infuser.  Jaws is also a fairly spectacular movie so please excuse the rest of this post…..please.  If you’re lost as to all the quotes – you’ll just have to watch the movie.  “That’s some bad hat, Harry.”  Coincidentally my other half is not amused by Jaws.  His youth, I suppose, has more to do with this than anything.  That’s what I keep telling myself at least.  It pains me to think he actually just doesn’t like it.  *Shiver*
