GADGET: A Better Tea Bag Caddy

We see a lot of kitchen gadgets that should never have seen the light of day.

Nobody needs them, and worse, they don’t work.

Here’s one that’s very clever, useful and makes up for the last 10 gadgets we couldn’t even give away:

The Tea Bag Buddy from The Container Store.

This silicone tea cup lid helps in four ways:

  • It holds the tea bag while it steeps, so you don’t have to fish it out.
  • After the tea has steeped, you lift the lid and squeeze the silicone to remove the excess liquid from the bag. No utensil needed.
  • It traps the heat in the cup while brewing, and afterwards, between sips.
  • It gives you a place to put the used tea bag.
