Abstract

The component on the pot can consist of a suction cup or hook-clasp fastener, to which the string or label on the bag is secured. Alternatively double-sided adhesive tape or glue can be used, forming a permanent joint to the teapot. Where a head is used, this can be formed by a round or oval plate, round which the string is wound, figures and/or a text being printed on the plate, which can form a decoration for the pot. The string can be clamped between a mounting on the pot and a pouring component.

Description

Connecting element for temporary attachment of tea bags to a teapot.
The invention relates to a connecting element for temporary attachment of tea bags (or other bags for the preparation of an infusion) to teapots or similar jugs or pots. The object of the invention is to provide a solution to problems that arise when pouring tea water into a teapot in which a tea bag hangs, becoming too strong of the tea and difficult to remove a tea bag from the teapot by the current methods.
In the tea-making manner known in practice with the aid of a teapot and a tea bag, it is difficult to prevent the tea bag, string and label from falling into the teapot during the pouring of boiling water. Often the label and string are held by hand during pouring or twisted one or more times around the handle of the teapot or the knob of the lid, possibly using the gap in the label in which the string can be clamped. These are inconvenient methods and both hands are needed, while in one hand one often already has the kettle or the kettle with boiling water. If the string is wrapped around the knob of the lid, the lid cannot be easily lifted and the string will have to be unscrewed again and again. After pouring the boiling water, you often want to check whether the tea is strong enough by lifting the lid briefly.
When the tea has reached the desired strength, it is desired to remove the tea bag from the tea to prevent the tea from becoming too strong, which detracts from the taste. It is usual to clamp the bag between the lid and the pot or to take the bag completely out of the pot and throw it away or to deposit it on a specially designed dish. To do this, you will have to detach the string from the handle or from the knob of the lid, which is often an inconvenient operation.
In the first case, the lid must be lifted, after which the bag must be carefully clamped between the teapot and the lid. This is also a difficult operation. If you later want to check whether there is still tea by lifting the lid, the bag falls back into the tea.
30 In the second case, one will have to search for a bowl or ashtray with a dripping tea bag, which often degenerates into a mess.
1002810 2
Another possibility is to turn the string around the handle a few times, so that the bag hangs above the remaining tea. If later the tea bag needs to be removed from the teapot, this is a difficult job.
The object of the invention is to provide a solution to these problems.
To this end, the invention provides connecting elements for attaching a tea bag to a teapot. The connecting elements can be permanently or temporarily attached to a teapot or similar jugs or pots. The connecting elements are equipped for this purpose with a suction cup, double-sided tape, Velcro, glue or another fastening system. A 10 cup element is attached to this fastening system, to which the string or label of the tea bag can be attached. This head element can be manufactured in various shapes from a hard or soft material, for example plastic, rubber, wood, metal or pottery. The shape of this head element can, for example, consist of a ball or a flat disc with a logo, text or image printed on it. Many other imaginable figures are possible, to decorate a teapot.
The connecting element is secured in a suitable place on the teapot. With one hand and a simple movement, hang the tea bag in the pot and twist the string of the tea bag once around the connecting element. A round head element guides the string well. The string is clamped between the fastening system and the head element placed thereon. Due to the weight of the tea bag, the string will automatically tighten. A good clamping can be obtained if the string falls into a tapered groove or if the string is twisted around a rough part such as rubber. As a result, the tea bag will not come off under its own weight and the string can easily be removed again after use of the tea bag.
The cup element can also be formed by an element formed from a hard or soft material, provided with a slot or opening in which the string of a tea bag can be clamped. This principle can also be used to clip the tea bag label into the slot instead of the string.
30 If you want to check whether the tea has reached the desired strength, the lid of the teapot can be lifted without hindrance from the tea bag or string. When the desired tea strength has been reached, you can loosen the string 1002810 3 by a simple rotary movement, pull the tea bag without lifting the lid up by pulling on the string until the tea bag is above the liquid level and reattach the tea bag to the connecting element with the same simple rotary movement. The clamping of the string prevents the tea bag from sinking back into the tea under its own weight.
In the case of a cup element provided with a slot or opening, the tea bag can be moved above the liquid level in a movement. To do this, the string is pulled down through the slot or opening.
In both cases one can remove the tea bag from the teapot with a simple movement.
If the connecting element for tea bags is equipped with a suction cup or Velcro, the connecting element can be easily removed and fitted, for example during the cleaning of the teapot. However, the connection is so strong that the teapot can be washed without problems while the connecting element for tea bags is still attached to the teapot.
The invention is also applicable to any pot or jug in which drink is obtained in the same manner as tea, made by means of a bag that is dipped in a liquid.
The invention is also applicable for tea holders, in which one can place loose tea 20, also called "tea egg". The chain, which in most cases is connected to such tea holders, can be easily attached to a connecting element and removed.
The invention also relates to connecting elements which are designed as a fixed part of a teapot. The connecting element can for instance be placed on the handle, the side and on or in the edge of the teapot. The advantage of this is that a connection element for tea bags can be taken into account directly in the design and manufacture of the teapot as a fixed part of the teapot.
The invention is explained in more detail below with reference to the drawing (not in actual size).

In the drawing shows:
Fig. 1 a first embodiment of a connecting element for tea bags on a teapot according to the invention, consisting of a diabolo-shaped element, provided with a suction cup with which the connecting element can be attached to a teapot. The tapered shape of the diabolo ensures that the string of the tea bag is easy and easy to attach and remove.
Fig. 1a shows a side view. Fig. lb shows a top view.
Fig. 2 in section shows the use of a connecting element for tea bags on a teapot as shown in fig. 1. The string of a tea bag is twisted once around the connecting element.
Fig. 3 is a view of the use of a connecting element for tea bags as shown in FIG. 1 mounted on a teapot.
Fig. 4 an alternative embodiment of a connecting element for tea bags on a teapot. The shape is the same as that of the connecting element 15 shown in Fig. 1. However, the suction cup has been replaced by a disc provided with double-sided tape which provides a permanent connection between the teapot and the connecting element. This place can also be provided with Velcro, so that the connecting element can be easily removed and fitted.
Fig. 5 an alternative embodiment of a connecting element for 20 teabags on a teapot. The string of a tea bag can be clamped between the two upright legs of the connecting element for tea bags. This eliminates the need for the rotary movement required to attach a tea bag according to the principle shown in Fig. 1. Both legs are tapered so that a good clamping is obtained. Fig. 5a shows a side view. Fig. 5b shows a top view.
Fig. 6 is a view of the use of a connecting element for tea bags to a teapot as shown in FIG. 5.
Fig. 7 four alternative embodiments of connecting elements for tea bags which are constructed as a fixed part of the teapot. The connecting element for tea bags is shown on the handle, the side and the edge of the teapot, respectively. Fig. 7d shows a teapot with a slot in the edge in which the string of a tea bag can be clamped.
