The Hold-In-One-Hand Complete Tea Service
For the Hospitality and Catering Industries
TEAPY® T-4-1™ dramatically cuts operating costs, increases customer satisfaction and takes less storage, preparation and table space.
Instead of a typical seven piece tea service (teapot, teapot lid, cup, saucer, teaspoon and milk jug, all on a tray), the TEAPY® T-4-1™ only has four pieces (a mug, teaspoon and a milk jug retained on the TEAPY®), all four pieces held in one hand with the “footprint” of a single mug.
TEAPY® T-4-1™ also contrasts with current methods of serving tea by its quicker prep, safer carry and speedier table clearance, for table service, counter service or self-service.
The milk jug is retained in a recess on top of the TEAPY® which can alternatively accommodate a lemon wedge, a honey jar or sugar / sweetener. The additional weight of the jug and downstand of the TEAPY® make it less likely to spill than an open mug whether held by hand or on a tray.
Using a TEAPY® T-4-1™
USING TEAPY® T-4-1™ WITH A TAGGED TEA BAG
1. Add boiling water to mug. Add tea bag and replace TEAPY® with tea bag string inside perimeter recess.
2. Place jug into recess on top of the TEAPY®.
3. Carry to table or desk by holding the mug handle or multiples on a tray.
4. Remove jug and watch tea brewing to required strength.
5. Lift TEAPY®, enjoy the “aroma burst”, flip and fit snugly against mug for mess-free transfer of the used tea bag. Add milk to taste and stir with teaspoon.
6. Move TEAPY® aside and enjoy!
TEAPY® T-4-1™, with a milk jug retained on the TEAPY®, is carried from a preparation location to a table or desk, either by a server or by a customer or by a home or office user.
A teaspoon is typically included within the perimeter recess to complete an all-in-one service, the teaspoon being used to stir in the milk when the tea has brewed, as well as remove an untagged tea bag.
For loose tea, our own TEAPY® Tea King™ infuser hooks over the side of the mug, within the perimeter recess or opposite a retained teaspoon.
TEAPY® with a glass mug is perfect for fruit and herbal infusions, for seeing the “theatre of infusion”, and keeping the TEAPY® as a lid for as long as you like.
Some customers prefer our ceramic mug for black tea with milk.
The top recess can alternatively hold a lemon wedge, a honey jar, a sugar / sweetener sachet or biscuit / sweet treat.
TEAPY® can keep your drink warm and act as a 'bug barrier' outdoors.
