Thirst-Quenching Fun: Creature Cups

Imagine you’re drinking a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. You glance down into the cup and see an otter or an octopus! Either you’re sipping from a Sea World aquarium, or you’re enjoying your drink from a creature cup. These animalistic creations are designed by Yumi, an artist based out of Brooklyn, New York. They’re sold online at Creaturecups.com. You get a selection of either the octopus or the otter cup, or you could get both. If you are a store owner (or if you know someone who is interested), you can order these to sell in your place of retail. Read the “info” page for contact info.

Creature Cups are hand-made, dishwasher-safe and cost about fifteen dollars before shipping and handling. If you’re looking to buy one in the near future, they are unfortunately sold out at the moment. Yumi claims that they’ll be restocked next year, and there will even be more to choose from! If you’re still interested in what’s offered now, you can pre-order them.

Creature Cups are a delightful gift for the hot-beverage consumer you know! They’ll make coffee breaks more interesting and surprise those unfamiliar with the “hidden creatures in your cup”!

Dream Weaver Shop

The shop Dream Weaver is home to some pretty amazing tea, and you can find nearly any natural tea flavor you’re looking for. This shop makes buying tea as easy as placing a simple order, and waiting! According to Bob, the man who runs the Dream Weaver shop, “I prefer to sell whole leaf teas because they have much better flavor since when you cut the teas very fine to put them into tea bags they lose flavor from being exposed to air.” The tea also comes with a reusable tea bag that can be rinsed out after each use.

Bob’s site offers many options to customers, available for your purchase, he sells; green tea, black tea, chai, white tea, herbal tea, herbs, resins, and fudge. Bob sent two sample fall flavors to the magazine earlier this week, English Toffee, and Pumpkin Pie herbal tea; both of which were very refreshing. The two flavors, which were very different from one another, had a way of warming you after a day out in the cold.

If anyone has a strong love for tea, this is the place to go! Your quest for delicious, natural teas is over, just visit www.etsy.com/shop/dreamweavershop and get shopping, either for yourself, or for friends and relatives who love tea! This would make an excellent gift during the holidays!
