Teapy is to launch the T 4 1 combined mug lid and tea bag tidy at Hotelympia on 5-8 March at London’s ExCel.
On show on stand 3784, the new format is said to be suitable for individual tea service, coffee shops, cafés and canteens.
Instead of a typical seven piece tea service (teapot, teapot lid, cup, saucer, teaspoon and milk jug, all on a tray), the Teapy T 4 1 has four pieces including a mug, teaspoon and a milk jug retained on the Teapy, with all four pieces held in one hand with the footprint of a single mug.
The T 4 1 is also claimed to enable quicker prep, safer carry and speedier table clearance, for table service, counter service or self-service.
Teapy is a combined mug lid and tea bag tidy which can be used with a tagged tea bag, untagged tea bag or loose tea in an infuser. The mug with Teapy as a lid is said to provide the good brewing conditions of a teapot.
Whereas the strength of tea in a teapot is not visible, changing from too weak to too strong, the transparent Teapy should enable brewing to the individual customer’s desired strength.
A special recess can contain a teaspoon and a tea bag string and, when Teapy is ‘flipped’ to act as a tea bag tidy, the special recess fits around the mug for transfer of the used tea bag or loose tea infuser with what is said to be no mess.
