Retailers Soho Design and OTOTO recently teamed up to create a set of tea infuser designs inspired by water. The set comes with either an upside down umbrella steeper or a yellow submarine that add an element of whimsy and playfulness to hot beverages.

Tea steepers are ideal for consumers that enjoy to custom create their own tea blends or use loose leaf versions. The umbrella steeper is made from blue silicone filled with perforated dots that allow the tea placed inside the mesh fabric to seep out through. This allows the tea to naturally flavor the water and provide an aromatic and rich taste. The umbrella hangs upside down in the glass while the handle secures onto the side of the cup.
