They say that in an Irish home the kettle is always on. A cup of tea is offered upon the arrival of any guest and insisted upon before any departure. Therefore Irish homes must have all the right accessories.
This tea bag holder comes in an adorable teapot shape. It is ideal for holding teabags as they cool down and dry before being disposed of while keeping your countertops empty of clutters and dreaded tea stains.
This teabag holder features the Irish Shamrock. In ancient times, the druids believed the Shamrock had mystical powers. To them its three leaves were a natural sign of a sacred number. This little plant was even said to warn of an approaching storm by turning up its leaves. According to legend St. Patrick himself plucked a Shamrock from the ground to explain his belief in the Holy Trinity. They say this helped convert the Irish people to Christianity. Many believed that wearing this little sprig of green would keep them from harm.
This teabag holder is also decorated with Celtic spiral and knotwork patterns in the colours used in the famous Book of Kells. An ideal addition to your kitchen.
