Tea balls of yore now elicit yawns. With quirky infusers of all shapes cropping up, there's a hole in the marketplace for a book-themed infuser, perfect for anyone who loves to cozy up with a good book and a cuppa tea.
The perfect gift for any bookworm in your life, THE BOOK LOVER'S CUP OF TEA includes an innovative book-shaped tea infuser (titled A Tale of Two Ci-Teas) that offers two ways to brew: Dunk the entire book into your cup, or let the cover rest on the rim of your tea cup and hang the tea-filled pages into your hot water to steep. The kit also includes a 32-page book with tips for making the perfect cup of tea; suggestions for tea and book pairings (fancy a cup of Dorian Earl Gray?); and scrumptious recipes for tea sandwiches, cakes, and cookies, perfect for a book club gathering or a long, lazy day of reading.
