It's cold outside, so I've been on a quest to warm up with tea. The Magisso Tipping Tea Cup ($22) is my new favorite mug: its ingenious design allows you to steep loose-leaf tea for as long as you want and no longer. All without the need for a tea ball. The bottom of the mug has two angled planes: just tip the cup down to allow the tea leaves, placed in a separated section, to steep and then tip it back upright to enjoy your tea without a bitter aftertaste. It's large enough to hold a good amount of water and fits comfortably in your hand. The mug is also available in white here.
