The art of tea pouring reaches new heights as shown in this video of a tea master pouring in a tea house in Chengdu, China.

Tea Making Tips from 1941
2/4/2010  |  Video Presentations
"Tea Making Tips" is a short film released in 1941 and sponsored by the Empire Tea Bureau of England. A classic video that demonstrates in detail methods of storing and preparing tea, it imparts that one should not waste a drop of tea because of carelessness. Watch and get your fill of crisp white tea cups, tea pots, classic tea chests and more. The Empire Tea Bureau also published a booklet during the war titled "Tea Will Help". The Montreal Gazette said that it's aim was to "be of practical assistance to any groups or individuals engaged in voluntary war work."  I also enjoyed the headline from the newspaper which included that "Tea in Wartime Held More Useful Institution Than in Peacetime". Cozy up with your favorite cuppa and enjoy this oldie, but goodie.
Tea Top Brew Mug - Tea Gone High-Tech
11/3/2009  |  Video Presentations
Brewing tea pouches or tea bags has gone high-tech with our new Tea Top Brew Mug. You no longer have to drink over-brewed tea. Featuring the patented Tea Top lid, this brew mug is a "€œtraveling teapot"€ perfect for enjoying whole leaf tea pouches. The brewing system is simple: Fold the tea tag in half and thread through the underside of the slit on the lid. Once the brew time indicated on the tea tag is reached, just pull up on the string. This squeezes the oils of the tea pouch into the infused beverage below and pulls the spent tea pouch up to rest in a domed area. You never have to drink over-infused tea again. The body is crafted of double-walled stainless steel keeping your tea hot, while staying cool to the touch.
