Insert Teabag, plop in water and let it maximise your teabag

Ever get sick of never getting the same great cup of tea time after time ? With this device you could choose a setting and be guaranteed the same great taste every time!

Insert your teabag into the teabag clasp which is filled with holes to allow water in and out. The clasp is on the end of a rod, and the end of the rod attached to the motor / gear mechanism.

The motion when in water will be to rotate it about in the water as well as vibrate. These settings can be chosen on a timer for different settings, weak, medium, strong, MaXimised etc.

This way the family member who makes the manky tea cannot get out of this mundane task - they need simply to use the Teabag Maximiser and the appropriate setting.

       //filled with holes// Is the degree of hole-filledness measured in "Blackburn"s or "Albert Hall"s ?
One blackburn = 250 micro-Alberts

       [coproc] - it took me a while to decide how many holes would actually fill the clasp. I had to pour out a pile of holes approximately the same size as a wet tea-bag then times it by two to allow room for the 'swishing' effect.

       There are plenty of tea pots with such devices, only not motorized. If you have done any research to show that these result in better cups of tea even when utilized by incompetents (your siblings?), then maybe you'll get a bun. Otherwise, I'm afraid I have to withhold my vote.

       [zeno] haha.   

       [googlepig] //manky tea// ??? Dictionary.com says "inferior and worthless"
