Make your daily tea preparation a little more entertaining. NovelTea bags would be made in the shape of the Titanic, the Bismarck, the USS Arizona, etc. Instead of poking the bag down with a spoon, watch your ship along with thousands of tiny teabag-crewmen and passengers slowly sink to a watery grave. Educational oceanography teabags for kids in the shape of the Trieste or Jaques Cousteau's saucer. Possible product tie-ins with the Little Mermaid or Incredible Mr. Limpet.

Fish-shaped tea bags http://www.halfbakery.com/idea/fish-tea
And then you could have these guys swim through the wreckage at the bottom of your teacup. [PotatoStew, Jan 10 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       Sea bags?

Also, children aren't great tea drinkers, so maybe have sugar already added in the tea-bags to make them more enticing?

       wow, Jim! that is an idea worthy of it's own entry, methinks! Less actual teastuff per bag, bulk up with sugar, more-mass-marketable (a la kool-aid?) and cheap!

       You could make the bags transparent and put tiny plastic men in them for added realism.

       stranger still, are those 'drawstring' bags on tetley tea. it has two strings connected to a perforated tag, which is meant to split apart. when you've steeped it to the desired strength, the bag is lifted out, and you pull the two strings. the idea is that you'll be squeezing out every last bit of flavour from it. odd indeed.
