Some of you teapigs fans told us that the string from our tea temples was too short, and that the string and tag were always falling into your cups. The string has to be this length in order to avoid lots of waste but, fear not, we have found a solution - the tie tea mug! Hurrah! You can tie your tea temple around the two little tea-temple-string-slot-things at the top of the cup. It's designed like a boat dock cleat so your tea bag wont go floating away!
