Fishing for a good cuppa

Here's a cute and handy bit of originality for your tea breaks. The Tea Bag Holder Shirokuma (Polar Bear) from Necktie Design Office not only keeps your drink warm as it brews but it also stops the tea bag string and tab from slipping into the liquid.

Made of a porcelain, the cup cover's polar bear holds a fishing rod with a little loop on which to hang the tea bag. Expect comments from nearby friends or coworkers, as the little ice-fishing bear is an eye-catching novelty.
