These bizarre teacups are the work of Etsy seller VoodooDelicious. Unfortunately, the handmade items cannot be used for drinking and exist merely to enhance your decor and allow you to start uncomfortable conversations by introducing your pet octopus/Kraken/Cthulhu that can only survive in tea.

Numerous colors and poses are available, from a simple tentacle wave to the bashful peek-a-boo seen above. Check out some additional pics after the jump.

My belief that TeeFury is looking to take over the world is slowly coming to fruition. First t-shirts, then shoes, and now? Coffee mugs.

And not just any old mugs –– but mugs about our incessant need/craving/desire for all things hot and caffeinated.

The mugs are part of their “Caff-Fiends Collection” and, so far, the designs are pretty awesome. The mugs also include matching shirts.

Check out more designs after the break.

goldfish teabag 1

Until today I’ve only seen tea bags in two shapes: circles and squares. Charm Villa is making the product kitschy with their goldfish-shaped tea bags. The bags go through a 16 step manufacturing process and when they’re dunked in your mug of hot water, they actually look like swimming fish. The tea bags are beautiful and just a tiny bit weird.

Watch the tea bags swim around in a cuppa after the break.

Have you ever grabbed a nerdy mug in the afternoon to make yourself a warm cup of tea and thought to yourself, “if only there was a way to make this geekier?” Well, there is thanks to Friday Afternoon Gourmet Teas! The Etsy shop specializes in creating tasty geeky tea blends and can even make you a nerdy custom blend if you have a particular theme in mind.

Their tea themes include Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, and more. All of their teas are loose leaf and they even sell geeky tea infusers too (like the above Star Trek and Doctor Who themed versions).

See some of Friday Afternoon’s geekiest teas after the break!

Ahoy, mateys! There comes a time in every scallywag, salty sea dog or buccaneer’s life when he or she has to take a break from treasure hunting and relax with a nice cup of tea.

Now, if you’re a pirate who’s planning to brew up a spot of tea, you should probably pick up this T-Bones Tea Infuser. Now, the question is should you take that yoga class with your shipmate that has the peg leg? Yes. Yes you should.

Make tea time more fun (and way more expensive) with this stunning wooden tea tray from Artonomos. The birch plywood design has been carved to look like a topographic map. If you spill any tea, it will drain into the middle of the tray to form a lake. You could even pour the tea into the indentation intentionally and drink it with a giant straw like some sort of god. A god that rules over a planet where it rains tea.

See more photos of the tray after the break.

Who says you’re too old to use your imagination? Who says you can’t spend a good chunk of your day dreaming up a magical story about unicorns and a magical rainbow-filled land? Believing in the fantastic is a good thing, so celebrate your love for all things fantasy with this fun Unicorn Sprinkles Mug. It features a cupcake riding a unicorn and it’s glorious.

Oh, dear. It appears that there’s a Grim in your tea cup. Drat. Well, if you’re not up-to-date on what a Grim is, it’s an omen of death, and it typically comes in the form of a black dog (Harry Potter once saw a grim in his tea cup too).

Don’t worry though. Etsy seller Crucify made this hand-painted tea cup with a Grim on the bottom, so you’re not actually witnessing a bad omen. Or are you? Maybe you should stay indoors for a while. Do try and stay away from sharp corners and don’t run with any scissors anytime soon.

This Tea-Rex started out life as a simple teapot. A little customization by Neokentin has turned it into something amazing. This sculpture now barely resembles its former self with just a few bits in the design revealing its original life as a tea pot. You can imagine this as a vehicle in some sort of steampunk novel, coming in at the last moment to save the day.
