Tea Handle Trick & Tea Bag X-Ray Vision

Photobucket

Found this link on Girl In The Green Dress for this nifty cup with a couple indentations to wrap the string by George Lee. I love fun design, so I enjoyed this for a moment. But shucking out $25 for a cup with a couple slits in it seems like an awful lot.

Especially when most tea drinkers know the whole "wrap the string around the handle" trick--or so I thought. An informal roll call in my office showed I was the only one who did this.

I'm such a tea-string-wrap-around-the-handle loner.

And for my own amusement because it is approaching the middle of the work week and I'm a bit slap happy, I imagined what a regular tea bag like the one directly below would look like in an x-ray.
