Wisdom Wands: Coffee and tea brewing wands
Here's a drinking concept for tea and coffee lovers that I've never seen before -- brewing wands that you use to brew your hot drink then use as a straw to sip through. Normally, you don't drink hot beverages through a straw (I vaguely recall trying to once or twice and burning my throat because I couldn't guage the temperature before it was too late). And then there's the straw melting issue with normal straws. Makes me wonder how much of the pleasure of drinking hot tea and coffee has to do with the sensation of sipping from the edge of a cup. But I do like the idea of brewing from loose tea leaves or ground coffee beans one cup at a time. And maybe drinking tea and coffee through a straw would be a nice change of pace.
The Java Wand is basically a mini French press filter attached to a glass straw. You add coffee straight into your cup of hot water, let it brew, add milk and sugar, then drink through the wand. The similar Health Tea Wand is a glass wand with a strainer at the bottom to strain your tea leaves as you drink.
