A great site called Colour Lovers allows you to create complimentary colour palettes for design projects…or just for fun. I particularly like this gallery of colour palettes with inspiration taken from the hues of tea and coffee – how cool!

It’s addictive!

Jem Cooke is a 27 year old singer-songwriter based in London and a big friend of the girls at tea-stain. She very kindly provided us with her brilliant track ‘Noise’ for our new video coming soon.

If you haven’t seen it yet check it out here. And while you’re at it check out Jem’s MySpace page for details of upcoming gigs and music downloads and have a little sing-a-long with a nice cup of tea.

Penguin Teaboy time looks cute and brews a perfect cup of tea

February 18, 2009

It’s time to finally fire that no-good assistant of yours. The Penguin Teaboy is the only one you’ll ever need because he will never ruin a cup of tea. This cute penguin includes a timer on the side that can be set from one to 20 minutes. Hook a teabag over the beak of the penguin and set the timer. It’ll dunk the bag into the cup of water and raise it out when the timer is complete.

The Terrorist Tea Pot

I’m not sure if this is funny or offensive?

According to comedian Billy Connolly, if a man is left alone in a room with a tea cosy, and he does not attempt to wear it, he should not be trusted. I think if I came back into a room and someone had put this on I’d piss myself laughing.

This Tea pot combo should make a great pressie for your granny and you can buy it from Suck UK.
