Whales make tea infusers so much cuter

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.

They also come with a detachable water spout that doubles as a stirrer.
