Each teabag is delicately handcrafted with various folds, perforations, and layers to encourage each creature to come alive while in hot water.
If you have a transparent kettle, then it looks like you’ve got a miniature aquarium at home.
Ocean-Teabag got its start with the handiwork of Takahashi Shota.
Even the tea makes the experience feel realistic, with the squid filled with Pu’er tea that looks like ink.
Flavors of persimmon, Assam, and Darjeeling grace your tongue.
Other Animals Are Also Available for Purchase
If something with tentacles isn’t your style, then Ocean-Teabag offers a selection of additional animals from which to choose.
You can find options that look like raccoons, otters, and other mammals.
You can also select from a variety of different fish and amphibians.
The panda is especially cute.
When you purchase these novelty teabags, then it’s not just the craftsmanship of what you steep that gets noticed.
Each figure comes with a relatable pull tab that fits with the personality of the animal.
The frogs have a lilypad, while the panda holds a sprig of bamboo.
If you decide to purchase one of the fish species, then you’ll see various coral reef colors attached to the teabag.
The octopus and squid have what amounts to a selfie connected to them.
If you want to bring home these unique works of art, then you’ll need to shop through CD Japan instead of the primary storefront if you require international shipping.
The cost of each package is approximately $18 before handling fees get applied to the order.
New Products Even Sit Outside of Your Mug
Ocean-Teabag is expanding its line of products to include animals with more color that sit outside of your mug to encourage steeping.
There’s a cat that likes to sit on the handle and a shark that looks like it came straight from Jaws.
Even if you aren’t a fan of drinking tea, you can’t deny how beautiful these teabags are.
If you bring a package home, then it will become the conversation piece you can’t live without!
