We certainly hope someone in the Middleton family is stocking up on the most ridiculous bits of memorabilia being marketed as tie-ins to the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. We refer, of course, to things like the Royal Wedding sick bags or this mug that accidentally paired Kate with brother-in-law-to-be-Harry.
Now a German company has jumped into the game with a set of tea bags inspired by Kate and Wills. The bags are topped by illustrated cardstock cut-outs of the royal couple’s torsos. When plopped into a mug of hot water, they appear to be steaming in a hot tub while wearing their wedding togs.
The BBC’s Royal Roundup points out: “Even worse, from an English perspective, the bags are filled with German-grown black tea.”
