Tea Pillows, Hobs & More

Here are some interesting items I've run across lately. Nothing to gain by plugging them. Just thought they were nifty.

If you can't get enough tea during the day, get your mitts on a Tea Pillow. Yes, it is what it sounds like. Tea Pillows are filled with tea instead of feathers and, according to the people over at Tea GW, they "have been used in Asia and in particular China for hundreds of years, and now are growing in popularity" in the West. All manner of wonderful benefits are said to result from using them.

What's a HOB? Well, it's most certainly not your grandmother's tea cosy. Designed, as the manufacturer says, "to appeal to the growing number of male tea drinkers."

Next time you're shopping for a chair and a tea chest, you might as well kill two birds with one stone and pick up a Tea Chest Chair.

Last up, a rather eye-catching Japanese Tea Serving Set.

I've heard of sleeping on tea pillows before. It supposedly heals whatever ails you while you sleep.

The tea pillow is very interesting - I'd love to talk to someone who's tried it . ..
