One of life’s simple pleasures is a cup of tea, so of course someone wants to ruin it.
Heading down the same path as cheese and cream, No More Tea Bags promises hotter, tastier tea by way of an aerosol-style can.
The creatively-named product also claims to solve the apparent problem of soggy tea bags, messy leaves and brewing time.
As the average tea drinker lets their leaves steep for roughly 13 seconds, Guy Woodall reckons his invention cuts through the time that tea actually needs to brew.
The foam – yes, it’s a foam – is apparently brewed for five minutes and users just need to add more or less of it to vary the strength.
“The convenience of not having to sit around and wait for your tea to brew is a major selling point, but the technology we’ve used enables us to produce a tea that we believe is a far superior taste to an ordinary tea bag,” he told Metro.co.uk.
It has not been received well, particularly in England, where tea is pretty much a religion.

Aerosol tea. 2016’s ability to keep on stooping lower than you thought possible is astonishing.
