Tea Diver

Add a little whimsy to your afternoon caffeine fix with Tea Diver from Seoul-based Abel Partners Design Studio.

Instead of using the metal ball on a chain that you’re used to, load your tea (you are using loose leaf, right?) into this cute strainer in the shape of a diver. It’s made of harmless silicone and can withstand the complete temperature range you’ll be using to brew, whether that’s green at 170F or black at 212F. The shape is based on a traditional Korean diver, and the string perfectly mimics the oxygen tank the Meoguri rely on. So go on, dive right in!
