Quirky robot loose leaf tea infuserCharacter tea infuser robot trend

This cute little chap is the perfect companion for loose leaf tea. Pop the tea inside the robot, and the robot inside a mug of hot water and, voila, he’ll brew you the perfect mug of tea!

The robot is designed so that his curved, hinged arms will grip hold of the rim of the mug or cup, so you don’t have to manually dangle him in.

Once your tea is brewed, just take him out and sit him back on the accompanying silver tray, where he’ll wait until you next need to put his robotic skills in action.

The Armed with Technology robot tea infuser costs $14.99 from ModCloth (they ship internationally).

Delicious Bellevue Tea

Clare Jones, at Bellevue Tea, very kindly sent us some tea samples to try. They arrived at a very appropriate time, as I’d just run out of my favourite Earl Grey tea and was about to buy some more.

Not surprisingly, it was the Earl Grey that I had to try first. Although I’d been happy with what I’d been drinking before, there really was no comparison between the two. The Bellevue Earl Grey is delightful – very floral and fragrant, but light enough to not be overpowering – and I’ve been firmly won over.

The Breakfast Tea was very nice too, and a good option for an ‘all day’, everyday, tea. Although I’ve drunk Rooibos in the past, I didn’t think I was massively keen – until I tried the Bellevue Version. This South African red bush tea, which is a good caffeine-free tea option, was a lot nicer than my previous experience and, again, not too strong (although I’m sure you could brew it to be stronger if you so desire).

We’ve still got the Ceylon Black Tea and Sencha Green Tea to try (the Earl Grey keeps getting brewed), but if you’re looking for a Christmas gift or stocking filler for a tea lover, Bellevue Tea have a set of all five teas for only £5. They’re packaged in handy wallets – perfect for taking to work or using at home - with six bags of individually strung tea in each wallet.

Individual boxes of each of the teas are available too, with 25 bags selling for only £2 per box.
