Delightfully Whimsical Tea Bags are Shaped Like Goldfish

A hot cup of tea can be the perfect complement to a cold winter day. And, even more so when your tea bag is shaped like a goldfish! The Taiwanese design firm Charm Villa produces these whimsical creatures that simultaneously brew tea and “swim” in your cup when you tug on their cotton strings.

As you might imagine, it's not exactly easy to produce these exquisite and delicate tea bags. Each one is the result of a complicated 16-step process, nine of which require handcrafted skills. This is done to maintain the integrity of the design as well as express the artistry of the object. Once they're full of water, the specially-cut bags are meant to mimic the natural rhythm of a goldfish. So, you'll not only savor the tea, but enjoy the experience of brewing because of this delightful creation.
