a complete tea service held in one hand.

The TEAPY T-4-1 invention comprises a set of tea ware components:

  • a TEAPY lid
  • a mug
  • a teaspoon
  • a milk jug
  • an infuser (optional)

It makes the best possible drink from the tea bag or loose leaf tea or other infusion provided, whether at home or table service, counter service or self-service.

TEAPY® T-4-1™ provides hospitality, catering and other foodservice operators with a better tea experience for their customers, who can see the tea or other infusion brewing in ideal conditions, to their preferred strength.
They then lift the TEAPY® lid, resulting in an “aroma burst”, flip and dock the inverted TEAPY® against the mug, enabling transfer of the used tea bag or infuser onto the TEAPY® with no mess. The operator has fewer pieces, faster prep and safer carry of a complete tea service held in one hand, or having a much smaller “footprint” on a tray.

Hospitality and Catering

TEAPY® T-4-1™ dramatically cuts operating costs, increases customer satisfaction and takes less storage, preparation and table space.

Home and Office

Carry safely in one hand to where you brew and enjoy your tea.

TEAPY T-4-1 is the future of tea service, in hospitality, catering, home and office. The brewing conditions of a teapot but with more control and a unique “aroma burst” on lifting and flipping the TEAPY lid. When “docked” snugly to the mug, a no-spill transfer of the used tea bag or infuser. After a perfect drink, the TEAPY is replaced securely on the mug without the need to re-flip, to keep a drink warm or return carry in one hand.
