(Mana)Tea for Two

As I have previous discussed, multiple times, I have a penchant for somewhat ridiculous things. Whether it's fashion or home décor, I believe that everything in my life should be as fun and funny as possible. 

Enter, my latest acquisition: The Manatea

Yes, my lovelies, The Manatea (or Philip, as I call him) is not only a well-constructed tea ball, but also an animal AND a pun ALL AT ONCE, which triples his amazingness and I just about died from an awesomeness overload when I saw him on ModCloth

I mean, just look at Philip hanging out! He's hilarious!

As soon as Philip arrived, I knew that I had made a solid purchase because he makes me smile whenever I see him, to the degree that I have decided to keep him in the front row of the cupboard so I can giggle every time I need a dish or cup because how can you not laugh when you see his cute little face and arms peeking out from atop whatever mug he's hanging out in? 

Why hello there, haha!!

But for reals, Philip is the bomb and also reminds me a bit of a house hippo, which only makes me love him more because unlike the house hippo, Philip actually exists. 

So now I have an awesome way to drink my loose, Creamy Earl Grey tea, and I seriously couldn't be more psyched about it. Yay for fun things!!


  1. Ha! That's awesome! He's so cute!

  2. I love it! I need to get me one of these :)

  3. Oh, I am dying of the cuteness! I love this so much. Thanks for sharing! :D

  4. Oh he is the best! I love how he hangs on the cup. So practical and adorable at the same time - love that!

    Also love thinking of the house hippo. We all knew they weren't real but we all wanted one SO BAD anyways. And he helped us to think critically! What is not to love about the house hippo!?! Glad you have something similar now. :)

  5. I would like to preface this question by pointing out that I am a Texan and our tea comes iced...

    What is a tea ball?

    PS I like Phillip.

  6. oh my, I need Philip in my life....he is just too cute!!

  7. Phillip is amazing! If I were a tea drinker, I would require him in my house! He reminds me of the hedgehog toothpick holder I saw in a Real Simple magazine...A hedgehog toothpick holder that I must find a way to acquire!


Whattaya got to say about that? *waits*
