Keeping the tea hot
The only thing better that making a good steaming cup of coffee or tea is drinking it while it's still hot and fresh . Unfortunately, work or some other distraction frequently gets in the way.
Enter the sleek, stainless steel tea pot warmer set, which not only looks good but also contains a white ceramic teapot that keeps its contents warm for an hour or so. It's large enough to hold up to one liter/33 oz. of liquid, and comes with a cylindrical tea strainer, so that you can make your tea in it.
The spout is also designed to avoid spillage, with a tiny hole that ensures that any excess liquid flows into the cup or mug, not down the side of the teapot onto the table. Yeah, it looks a little like a metal straitjacket for the white teapot, but I like that clean, modern look. I imagine this comes in handy during the cold winter months too.
