A Tea Set For Fun-Loving Ladies

I love drinking tea, but I’m a little sassier than most tea sets. Luckily, lingerie designer Tina Tsang has created a gorgeous-yet-quirky tea service that suits the modern tea-drinking woman. Lovely legs with gold heels pop out of the teapot, sugar bathtub, teacup, and milk pitcher. The tiered dessert stand reminds me of a party girl who’s had too much fun — which is exactly how my fancy tea at the Ritz played out when I went to London on vacation, and my friends and I got reprimanded for taking photos.

Tea Soothes Criminal

A thief with a knife came at a woman and her six-month-old baby as they walked down the hallway in a Tokyo apartment building. The armed man demanded money, but when she told him she had none, he barged into her apartment. The woman made him a cup of tea, and the thief put his knife away and talked about his life for 20 minutes. Then, the woman gave him $93 and he left. Police were unable to catch the man. My question is: What kind of tea did she give him? I could use some of that. [Reuters] Keep reading »

Crave: Kahla Velvet Cups

Who doesn’t want a handful of velvet? It’s soft like a bunny, sexy to the touch, and now it can prevent second degree burns too! The Touch Cups, made by the German porcelain company Kahla, are strategically covered in velvet and come in cool colors. While traditionally the furry fabric is dainty and easily ruined (insert dress stain story here), this durable tea set is like a real woman — it can take the heat and isn’t afraid to get wet (i.e. they’re microwavable and dishwasher safe).

Coffee, Tea, And Chocolate Baths

Scientists and anti-aging specialists are really into researching the health benefits of drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine, and there seem to be positive advantages, such as discouraging the development of colon cancer and the like. But those benefits come from consuming the beverages in moderation — so, what does bathing in them do? At Yunessun Spa Resort, about two hours west of Tokyo, you can soak in communal baths filled with Japanese sake, green tea, and coffee, in addition to the more traditional Dead Sea spa and Turkish hamam. The resort claims that red wine rejuvenates, coffee fights fatigue and helps beautify the skin, Japanese rice wine bath warms the body up, and green tea enhances the immune system. They also offer a chocolate bath, which supposedly encourages weight loss. Yum. We’re wondering if anyone takes a sip while no one’s looking. [Times Online and Yunessun Spa Resort] Keep reading »

Weekly Turn-On: Tea Time!

I’m not talking about teabagging here — more like Queen Elizabeth’s afternoon cup o’ English Breakfast makes some people horny. I came across the blog Tea Birds and was instantly confused — I’m a coffee drinkers to start with, but do some people actually have a fetish for pretty girls drinking a hot cup of tea? It seems so! While initially my thought was that this might just be a quaint little site produced by an innocent budding blogger in the U.K., I changed my mind when I saw the scribe’s name: Hardly Surton. If that ain’t a successful porn star’s name, then I’ll bid you a hearty “Cheerio!” (Psst! Our Catherine does enjoy a hot cup of tea every morning — we’ll try and sneak a shot in secret and send it the site’s way….) [Tea Birds] Keep reading »
