The Tea Bag Timer. $29.95. The Ferret lives in the UK right? So please understand that this item is more of a religious artifact than a home gadget. [Er…so why’s it made in Germany then? – Ed]
This inventive, German-made device steeps tea for the exact time you choose. The durable stainless steel arm lowers a tea bag or the included tea ball into a cup of hot water when the timer is set (between 2 and 20 minutes); when time elapses, a bell rings and the lever lifts the bag or ball out of the water.
