Requiem for a Tea Bag

Have you ever had an experience with a tea bag? My answer is yes and no. Yes, I have experienced the totally awkward situation of having my tea bag be all used up, and having no place that’s ironic enough to let it wither up and die! Well, I’ll tell ya, I’ve been waiting my whole tea-bagging life for a place to bury my tea bag. And here it is!

Designer Jonas Trampedach provides a loller of a solution:

Where Do tea bags go to die?. Usually squashed on the side of the saucer next to the cup, or if you have a little less decorum the table will probably be just fine. Jonas Trampedach has been observing the behaviour of tea drinkers and has evidently been learning a lot. Consequently he has developed a solution to the bag dilemma that is as simple as it is ingenious. With the ‘Tea bag Coffin’, the drinker can tidily bury the bag under the cup and out of the way. RIP.

Jonas Trampedach: the tea bag killer. Coffin tea dish forever.

    the tea bag is wet and bigger … so you need a biggest space and be sure dunnot touch the cup …

    your whole tea-bagging life eh? LOL I’m so childish.

  • TheGadfly says:

    Applying the gamer definition of the term “tea bag” makes the paragraph instantly funnier.

    It is emtional.But I don’t how many people have this feelings.And could I understand it as you kill him,and you bury him.

  • zuy says:

    Imagine to do it…it’s like fishing with a tea bag with the cup up
    is it really a better solution than just leaving it on the side except you dunnot see it?

  • colobigbow says:

    I like this childish idea even it solves nothing.
    Maybe it’s just critical design to evoke some thinkings between people

    Wow, what a coincedance. Three years ago we presented the same concept (patented for the Benelux) for Mosa. At that time Mosa was not interested. Hopefully times have changed and will this beautiful concept be produced in large quantities.

    where can i get this?

  • heyy says:

    make the tea bag area bigger! wet tea bags are bigger than that!!

    great idea overall.

  • asdf says:

    wow this WHITE text on BLACK background simply kills my eyes trying to read it

  • b2b says:

    sure fits my motto: “a place for everything and everything in its place.”

    also preserves the teabag for folks like me who brew multiple cups by reusing the same bag.

    now, what about the stir spoon, that will sit on the saucer all alone after mixing the sugar. if you could get rid of the spoon and the saucer, think of how much washing would be saved too.

    Simply splendid. Good show. Now, pardon me while I make space for two in my cabinet and begin hoping for at least a limited production line.

  • good observation, bad solution
