Hipster owls are so yesterday. Here comes the manatee! Your tea-drinking experience won’t ever be the same with the addition of this adorable animal tea infuser.
While this little product might not steep your tea as quickly as metal infusers, it still fulfills its purpose. The ManaTea is made from food-safe silicon, is easy to use and surprisingly stable — the cute creature’s flippers keep it from falling into the tea cup. The manatee’s body holds a good amount of tea and works well for medium to large tea leaves. It’s also very easy to clean.

Come May, Fork & Cork will replace Taste of Addison as the city’s largest annual food event.
