       For cats who've learned to turn on the kettle.

       Fill them with catnip.

       In the UK, tetrahedral tea-bags are quite popular (Increased volume when compared with 'flat' tea-bags allows more tea-water diffusion) - and can be used to teach kids about basic Platonic solids

       Platonic solids?..Are those solids that don"t have sex?

       I hate fish, and I hate tea. Not platonically.

       I've seen reports on very sweet (bottled) tea for children as a health problem; it rots their teeth.   

       I don't know what I was thinking. Maybe it's just that *I*d like fish-shaped tea bags. (But I'd like pokemon-shaped ones, too. Pikachu Pekoe, Charmander Camomille, and Squirtle Earl Grey!)

       Hmm.. Fish-tea puts me in mind of Japanese green tea, which often gets brewed with all sorts of additives, including, if I'm not mistaken, some sort of dried fish-flakes. I only remember hearing about this once, so I could be wrong.

       Please don't read that: Used tampons would make a great "fish tea"

       Going one step further, I think every food product should be available in a variety of shapes. Surely we have the technology to grow bananas shaped like cats, and why can't Pizza Hut deliver my pie in the shape of a star?

       I'd be for it if I weren't against teabags.   

       They could be easily sewn out of muslin, and reusable, and you could probably do something witty with the gathering-string connected to a hook at the 'mouth'.

       Don't you think that'd be a bit disconcerting? ("Oh look--there's a fish floating around in my hot drink!")

       Not a bad idea. Rather clever.

       Do kids drink tea?
simonj, Aug 05 2010
  

       Some of the more old-fashioned ones do, [simonj].   

       People tell me rooibosch tastes of mackerel. Since i've never eaten mackerel, i can't comment.

       well I'd probably change the name but cute idea.

       // Do kids drink tea? //   

       If there's nothing else, and they're thirsty enough, eventually, yes.   

       You just need patience, and possibly earplugs.

       "Mommy, the fish is pooping in the water and making it all brown!"
Cedar Park, Aug 05 2010
  

       It definitely needs to come with a little fishing rod, hook and landing net for taking it out. +

       How do you avoid the temptation to see who bunned and who boned your ideas [jutta]?
