The second most popular beverage in the world after coffee is tea. Typically packaged in a porous bag, tea leaves are soaked in hot water for a short time to create the drink we all know as tea. If you consider yourself a tea connoisseur of sorts and love to drink expensive cups of tea nothing says you’re rich like this handcrafted diamond teabag worth 7,500 pounds (US $15,250), made by Boodles jewelers to celebrate PG Tips’ 75th birthday.
The tea-bag boasts of 280 diamonds and is being used to raise money for a children’s charity in Manchester, England. Pete Harbour, spokesman for PG Tips said: “As it’s our 75th birthday, we wanted to do something special to remind people just how much they love the great British cup of tea.” What’s it with everything being adorned by diamonds and Swarovski crystals?
