Last week, I showed you my current wip (work in progress) the coaster and cup lid sets. I’m happy to have settled on a final design and color options as well! I was going to make different designs, but then figured why not keep it simple? I'm really pleased with the look and functionality of everything. I did a right fine job too! I might be a little biased tho’. :::wink:::  So let’s get into how these puppies work!

|Fancy Drinking Etiquette|

 

  • Steep On! – If you’re a fellow tea drinker, then you know all too well the perils of waiting for your tea to steep. Often times, I will put my tea bag in the cup with the intention of letting it steep for maybe five minutes or so. And then 15 minutes later when I remember my tea, it’s too cool and the perfect drinking temperature is gone! It’s been exposed to all that open air and the heat has just slipped right on out of the cup. But alas, no more!! I can really kind of forget about my tea for a little while now, because it’s covered by the cup lid. Granted… it’s not straight from the kettle piping hot, but its mosdef still hot enough to enjoy! Sometimes… I have to remove the cup lid in order for it to let my tea cool down. So yeah, this is one of my favorite features!
  • Fake is Fine - I've chosen to make these with a synthetic yarn, as opposed to a natural fiber for the simple fact that it will be easier to wash. I know I don't want to have to pull out some Woolite every time things get a little dirty and I'm sure you don't either. While hand-washing is always going to be the best option for any yarn-ish type of item, you will have the option to throw the coaster and cup lid in with the rest of your laundry.
  • Let's Break a Sweat - On the flip side of the coin (or drink?), I especially like using the coaster when I'm drinking a cold beverage. It works wonders on absorbing the condensation! Whether its glass or wood, I don't worry about anything seeping through. I have also been known to use the coaster and cup lid with a glass of wine while chilling outside. You really don't have to worry about flies or wasps trying to have their own pool party in your drink!
  • Tea Party for One, Please! - I'm just gonna put it out there that these are freaking cute and people will always remark on your coaster and cup lid set. They are a great conversation piece and will give you all the cute and dainty feels. I mean.. is there really anything else to say after that?

So these are the main reason why I love these little guys so so much! You know.. Other than the fact that I made them. :) Keep a look out for the coaster and cup lids being available on my Shop Page and use coupon code NEWTRIBE to get 20% off your purchase in my Etsy Shop!
