Some of us like coffee, others are crazy about tea. We are fans of both, and more so of the wacky and cool designs tea infusers come in these days. The rectangular tea bag was invented in the 1940s and well, 70 years on we should be using tea infusers in whichever design we damn well please!
Here are 20 rather quirky and geeky designs of tea infusers you can find all over the Web. Fan of the Beatles? Try the yellow submarine tea infuser. Prefer Star Wars instead? Check out the Death Star tea infuser (it looks as cool as it sounds). If you have no special preferences, then just go with the cute animal designs instead – we won’t judge. Name your favorite in the comments or share with us any awesome-looking tea infuser you already have.
