Everyone need's a loose leaf tea ball, why not make tea a special occasion, with one of these?  The addition of the lampwork chain with which to handle the tea ball, turns a common cup of tea into an event.

While Dancing Cat Studio's does not have an online presence, they can be found at Portland Saturday Market both Saturday and Sunday threw out the season.  Portland Saturday Market season runs the first weekend of March threw December 24th.
