It’s called the Terrorist Tea Pot

19 07 2009

If not the characteristic tea cosy, this would be a regular tea pot with eyes painted on. This tea pot designed by Jackie Piper for SuckUK comes with a balaclava cosy, which insulates the tea and keeps it warm. The set consists of a pot made of earthenware ceramic which holds 1,5 litres (50 Oz) and a cosy. For 20£ (23 EUR) this tea pot can be yours.

Tea drinking is known as a relaxing and peaceful ritual and I question just how appropriate this design is, as it gives a threatening and evil impression. At the same time the idea is brilliant and creative, but requires understanding a certain kind of humor. Terrorism is not good, but keeping your tea warm is, so it’s easy to get mixed feelings about this product.

This makes me think the Irish can be rather good blokes when they get together over a pot of tea.
