Inigo del Castillo Contributor

By Inigo del Castillo in New Products on Friday 14 March 2014

Whale, whale, whale, look what we have here, a marine mammal in my cup of tea. South Korean design studio ‘Gongdreen’ created the adorable ‘Dreaming Whale’ to give tea drinkers a whale of a time.

The miniature whales are made of food grade silicone and come in grey, sky blue, and pink – though I wish they made a white one for a cool Moby Dick reference. They also come with a detachable water spout that doubles as a stirrer.
