I like the butterfly one, but I'm flummoxed. What is their function? I just put my bag in hot water and then squeeze it with a spoon before removing it from the cup. Obviously, I'm missing several important steps! Have a good week, Snap. (Mr Dragon is always right...)

Wonderful tea bag holders! I have never seen them before. I will be on the lookout. I will see a few tea shops on vacation. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful! So many lovely items associated with tea drinking.

Terri said...

Oh tea bag holders! They are very pretty. Do you collect them?
I have a silver one from a while ago. They are very handy.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Mr. Dragon is right -- those teabag holders are HUGE -- easily triple the normal size! Maybe they are meant to be a "group" teabag holders, LOL!
