New Tea Accessory Health Tea Wand

by Andres » Sep 30th, '05, 17:35

A new tea acessory - The Health Tea Wand is a hand crafted, glass straw that brews and filters tea leaves, herbs, and infusions through specially designed strainer holes in the convenience of a cup. Simply add hot water to tea, steep, build flavor and sip to the very last drop through the Tea Wand. The portable wand is packaged in a carry case that contains a secret compartment to transport loose teas or herbs.

That's kinda cool... like a yerba mate straw (I can't remember what they're really called and I'm too lazy right now to look it up). I think I would only use it for herbals, though... leaving my tea leaves in while I drink my whole cup of tea, which for me takes a couple hours, might be a bit unpleasant. Ohh the bitterness... Cool idea though.

at least humor us

Andres,

Athough we don't have specific guidelines for TeaChat, the least you could do is humor us and disguise this self-promotional ad as a legitimate message. You might as well have stuck a banner into your post :)

This fellow has been posting his ads on RDFT, Afternoon Tea, and while i'm not a member, I'm sure s/he's tryed TeaMail too. S/He's been met with the same reaction every time.
Quit spaming, follwed by That doesn't seem very practical.

...so its a glass straw? why would you want to leave the tea in your cup anyways? it would be come bitter.

Wow -- it's like a tea mob in here...LOL. It seems like you all ganged up on him/her without even thinking about it! I actually tried something similar and it was awesome. You can enjoy tea and infusions that you blend yourself and don't have to use a kettle. I prefer it to tea bags.

Well, we didn't exactly gang up. We just happen to all share the opinions that A: we don't like spammers and B: it's not very practical. to quote LannaY, I don't want to suck my tea...

I totally thought about it, for at least five seconds! :lol: No seriously, I said it sounded like a cool idea, just not something I'd use.

To add to what Marlene said about it not being a practical idea, we all thought about it long enough to decide that it would produce a result that none of us like, that result being oversteeped tea. See, when you steep tea too long, it gets bitter, which is kinda nasty.

I did look over the site, but I agree with the others. I like to wrap my hands around my mug and drink from it, controlling how much I sip at a time. Not chase down something akin to a straw, with which I have less control of the amount of liquid I get.

The idea is intriguing and likely good for some - just not us.
