HERMIGAWD! It’s an actual wonderful Wonderful Treasure Find! We tend to focus on a lot of odd and quirky things that we find in Korea, but there are also lots of cool things you can find too! We did a few WTFs like that before, such as the circle contact lenses, the build a paper robot, and the fuzzy hat scarf with built in mittens. I’d love to do more of these wonderful cool finds because there are so many cool things in Korea but sometimes I’m worried they’ll seem boring and more like product review? What do you think if we do WTFs on cool things and just play with them? Like vending machine capsules or Korean candy or Korean drinks? Let us know what you think!

So onto this tea diver. Both Leigh and I are big big tea fans so Leigh actually found this little tea diving guy and we thought it was so cute we had to do it! I know that outside of Korea they tend to have lots of different kinds of tea bag holder too, but this one is sincerely made and designed in Korea so I thought it was at least unique to Korea in that way! It was actually a really clever design because it cleaned up really easily (by pooping out the tea, haha) and the little oxygen tank on the side is actually weighted so that it doesn’t fall into the tea pot. It also came with that little tea bag drippy thingy holder so that when you remove it from the cup it doesn’t juice everywhere. Simon, however, really hates tea. He thinks it tastes like wet paper or slightly wet grass. SIMON DOESN’T UNDERSTAND GREAT TEA!!! Some of you Nasties have sent us some wicked awesome tea in fan mail that I’ve never even heard of before! Some of it was loose leaf tea and we’ve been using a little mini metal tea ball thingy but it kind of sucks. SO now we’ll be switching to this awesome little diver guy!

So that’s about it, don’t know what else to say except that Simon is wrong. Haha can’t fight back against what you don’t know is in a blog post, can you Simon? And don’t forget to please let us know what you think about adding wonderful WTF items!

  1. Wishy

    XD “How do you kill someone with water?”
    1. Hold them under and force them to inhale the water.
    2. Use superpowers to make a water rope and strangle them.

  2. The Kenny reference lol xD I definitely think you guys should do WTFs on cool stuff too! :) Do itttt!

  3. !! Free with the LCBO magazine (remember those?) was a copy of the ‘Selections from Museums of Canada’ with those knick knacks and random ‘fancy’ things that are meant to be Canadian and WHAT DO I FIND ON PAGE 23??!!

  4. Switch off between cool stuff and funny stuff.

  5. DO IT! Cool thingy product reviews. I thought that’s what they originally were anyways! I mean, it’s TREASURE right? It’s supposed to be cool and fun!

  6. Aw, it’s so cute! I love tea. My favorite tea strainer is one shaped like a submarine. I want it! And Christmas is coming up…..

  7. i wonder if any store in my area has this. it doesn’t have to look like kenny, anything that isn’t this mesh ball thing is a win

  8. I’m afraid I have a little silicone yellow submarine tea infuser, so I am not bowled over. Still neat but not like OMGOnlyinKorea.

  9. KATHyphenTUN

    awwwwe he’s so cute!! I wish I drank more loose leaf teas just so I could use all the cute little tea accessories!
    I liked this WTF! I would’nt mind seeing more like these every now and then!! ^.^

  10. “They kill Kenny!”

  11. I think putting plastic into hot water isn’t a really good idea ^^’

  12. hey simon and martina, would you ever consider selling some of the stuff you review on your online store? the legit cool stuff like the tea diver, maybe not so much the black face masks and various face reshaping tools lol.

  13. I love both of your hats!

  14. Gemma Deacon

    This WTF is so cute! Might have to add the the xmas wish list.

  15. can you tell me please a shop in seoul where i can buy it? thanks

  16. I have seen that Fred Flare has the same tea infuser, so I wonder if the design was copied or sold?



    Even part of the description is exactly the same.”Made of 100% LSR Platinum Silicone (the same safe stuff used for baby bottles).”

  17. Go to teavana.com and be prepared to spends lots of money. I haven’t ordered from them in a while but they used to have a rooibos blend with little baby marshmallows in it. So good. Also they sell these cups that you brew loose leaf in then set on top of a mug and the tea strains and flows into the mug. Very cool

  18. Aww i wished you would have a giveaway for that:(

  19. Omg I’m tea drinker too! Martina, there may be a way to convince or to at least make Simon appreciate tea…

    Simon, I was like you before, too. I, too, had thought tea is the yucky bland dried grass juice mess that you drink when coffee and hot chocolate and even hot milk isn’t around…

    But my eyes have been opened! There are so many tea types out there that would taste completely different from my earliest taste of tea, coz really it was just because the tea I had wasn’t brewed properly ~.~’ that’s why it would taste yucky…

    Best example is green tea… A lot of people would brew it on boiling hot water, which would then result in a yucky bitter aftertaste… I did not, could not touch tea for a long time, until I had to sit through a Japanese tea ceremony… Dun dun dun…

    Safe to say I had gotten over the alternating pain/needles/numbness of my legs by being partly mesmerised by the whole ritual and partly looking forward to gobbling up the pretty & cute little sweets you get with the tea…

    Anyways, point was the tea was freaking delicious ^=^ and that’s when I realise, then later found out (after discovering more through wonderful internet) that your suppose to brew green tea on slightly cooler water than boiling (80•C is ideal according to wikihow) since this tea has more delicate leaves…

    Fast forward, I now have a shelf in our pantry dedicated to the different types of teas I have, and depending on my mood I brew teas great with milk hot, then I also have teas great by itself cold, but to make it things interesting I mix some of them in one brew to have an ultimate hot tea or an ultimate ice tea ^=^ now the whole family doesn’t poo poo on me drinking tea ^v^

    I’m a Sydney-sider so maybe you guise may have seen the T2 tea shops when you were here in Sydney or Melbourne? But I think Melbourne also has Tea Leaves (only know there website, never been to there actual shop myself! but they may be a slightly cheaper alternative)… in danger of sounding like an ad, T2 is the shop easily accessible to me since I can taste test any new teas they may have and they have heaps of tea types, that I can happily be in there shop for ages… whats also cool is that they also have funky tea nick-nacks like, but not as cool as, the tea diver, and little strainer thingies and tea cups and pots… ‘Kay I rarely post but I think I went over board on this one… Anyways TEA Is Good!

    Here’s there websites if ur keen ^=^

  20. “How do you kill people with water…DROWN! We’re gonna…”

    I don’t know why, but I totally cracked up at that. Oh, Simon.
    Dear Martina, I looooove your hat. And how much you love tea <3

  21. Ermahgawd, it’s so cute! I don’t drink tea, but if i had one, i would want to~ :P

  22. Simon, where did you get that amazing hat? I WANTS IT.

  23. martina i just found out what that disk is used for

  24. I think WTF videos with things that aren’t necessarily weird, but cool would be great too! It’s fun to see what kind of cool and weird things you can find in other countries~

  25. XD guys… this is really cute, i saw this at H Mart the last time too – I wanted to get something for my friend who loves tea and almost got her this but i ended up getting her a Tea-Rex:

    (I, on the other hand, do not like hot tea in the least. sorry guys. hot cocoa all the way)

  26. LOL Was there a little snippet from Block-B’s Nillili Mambo in this video? the little “HUH?!?!?” When they find out the diamonds are missing?…. I haven’t listened to that song so many times that I can spot it that easily…. Hahahahahabgkaregkjhaerk… Okay insane moment over. Any-who Seems Like Martina is set on Tea paraphernalia… Simon do you know how to use a french press for le coffee’s?

  27. kawaii_candie

    seeing the weird things is fun, but seeing cool things is fun too! you don’t have to worry, you guise!

    i often see cute tea-dunkers (is that even a real word??) in shops here and it makes me want to buy them and drink tea… and then i remember that i CANT drink tea because it makes me pee all the time. seriously, am i the only one?? i have serious envy of people who can drink tea and then not spend the next 4 hours going to the bathroom every 10 minutes…. *sigh*

  28. That looks SUPER AWESOME!

  29. Guy this Diver tea infuser is available on AMAZON. c:

  30. The way Simon is pinching the tea to get it out of reminds me of rednecks dipping tobacco. Maybe he should just pack the tea between his cheek and gums…

  31. Simon is so wrong.
    edit: But it means more tea for Martina so I guess it’s not a bad thing after all :)

  32. I love tea! I was drinking Cardamon Pu*erh tea today. so yummy. I wonder if I can find something similar for sale in the US. I would totally buy a diver tea ball.

  33. I have one of these but I bought mine in the U.S. Mine was labeled the deep tea diver instead of just tea diver

  34. OMG You killed me. YOU *******.

    But its pretty cool :D

  35. Ok, I think you guys need to help me buy all the stuffs that are on the WTF’s so I can WOW my friends with all my friends with these wontabulous Korean stuff!!!

  36. I love these comments- so much I didn’t know about tea!!!!!

  37. My aunt got one when we were visiting Korea :D it’s so cool ~

  38. FirstNameLastName

    If I (when I) buy that, I will make some tea, dip Kenny in hot water and scream: “OMG! YOU KILLED KENNY! YOU BASTARD!”
    that is a REALLY cute hat, Martina.

  39. Simon just can’t appreciate tea, NECTAR OF THE GODS!!! It’s delicious ^_^

  40. ☆pallavi☆

    I only drink chai and variants of but this would be super cute to use when making it! :3

  41. Too add to the conversation, I’ve heard that the Japanese always drink green tea after eating something oily and it helps dissolve the oil and perhaps will help you at least not gain weight. You’re not supposed to drink anything cold or then the oil will just sit there and congeal in your stomach. O.o Well anyway, I am drinking green tea after eating some oily ollieballen (yeah for the Dutch nasties who know what they are lol) so maybe I won’t gain weights, woo hoo! (disclaimer: ollieballen will make you super chubby no matter what you drink so proceed carefully!)

  42. Is that ????? sound at 1:13 a sample taken from Block B’s nillili mambo ending?! Looool if it is

  43. Next time, get some red tea (like raspberry) so that way Kenny/Diver person is leaking blood into the water. I worry about myself sometimes.

  44. martina, where did you get your hat???

  45. Ouuuuuuuu. I’m also a tea fanatic and I just came back from a long need tea shopping trip. Usually I get my tea by the kg in China, but I haven’t been back in a few years.

    Something you should try: A blend of rose tea (which is just dried rose buds) and oolong.
    My absolute favourite is Jasmine tea. I’m a really big traditional Chinese tea junkie to be honest > . <
    Cold fruity teas are freaking amazing during the summer though.
    Peppermint teas are good for cramps and soreness all around.
    I tend to shy away from "flavour infused teas" because I'm a big hippie about keeping my food as natural as possible…
    During the winter, sweetened peppermint tea and ginger tea w/ spices is awesome.
    TEA IS JUST FREAKING AWESOME OKAY. And I'm going through black coffee withdrawal because I keep getting the crazies since I drink too much of it …

  46. unicornsgalaxy

    watching as I drink a cup of tea (but it’s Lipton tea bags which admittedly are not as good as loose leaf tea). I want that little diver! It’s so cute! But since it’s just me, I usually drink by the mug so not sure if it will fit there.

    I love tea! Hot tea, Iced tea, flavored tear, spice tea, fruit tea, all kinds of tea!!!!

  47. I have this diver! Ugh, I love it to pieces. I got it through an American shopping site, though, so when it arrived and I noticed that it was originally Korean made, I was too happy :D

  48. How lovely is that! I want one for myself. (^_^)
    Nice video.

  49. thisisjustforfunval


    And HEY! South Park is still on with new episodes…or so I hear. Haven’t seen it since it’s third season.
    LOL and Simon you seemed genuinely confused how ones dies by water.

    Martina, I love tea as well. I need one of those, but my tea pot already has a built in loose leaf tea holder. I’m assuming the diver is too big for a single mug.

  50. And also Martina, do you know that Ginseng tea is supposedly really good for colds? I have this awesome Ginseng tea at home, but it looks like blood..

  51. PunkyPrincess92

    awww that is co cute and cool!!!
    too bad i don’t drink tea!! (or coffee)

    poor diver though….he has such a sad life!
    drowning for humans tea drinking needs!!!

  52. Simon – “We’re gonna dunk him and suffocate him and not suffocate him. How do you kill people with water? Drown! We’re gonna dunk him and drown him and then you’ll be like ‘oh my god I killed Kenny.’”
    I found that more funny than I should have.
    On another note: I WANT A TEA DIVER!!! So cool. And I can make my tea with it and think of Korea while I make my tea and drink my tea and OH MY GOSH I WANT TO GO TO KOREA! Amanda (best friend) when are we going?! Christmas break get here faster so we have time to plan!

  53. I think I’ll get you some tea from my local teahouse. They have so many teathings, so many different teas, tea cups, tea brewers, and a lot more. (they also sell a lot of coffee) You should’ve checked it out when you were in sweden! ^^ Or I’ll just send some things in an awesome tea-care package.

  54. andrea chan

    !!! Did you get that from the huge design shop/performance arts building in Hongdae? Also, if you know where I’m talking about, get those MAUM tea bags with the funky dudes/dudettes hanging on top :D The tea isn’t bad!

  55. Simon- Tea is usually brewed 1-3 minutes, depending on the type of tea (black, green, white, red, etc.). That’s my fun fact for the day!

  56. This was great. I want to go buy it for my English friend RIGHT AWAY… Where did you get it? Daiso? I bet you got it at Daiso.
    I need to go to Daiso anyway…
    You didn’t get it at Daiso, did you?
    WHEREEE ;o; /cry.

  57. Harriet Roozle Andrew

    I love peppermint, green tea, lavender and fruit teas, but I’m allergic to black tea! (Seriously, I’m not a tea racist, it gives me tummy ache :( )
    The one I commonly see here in the UK is the TeaSub, it’s like a little yellow submarine for your tea leaves, so cute!
    Though I find it hard to find loose teas here in the UK that don’t have black tea as a base, so I often resort to coffees and chocolatey drinks instead.

  58. Definitely keep doing WTFs. I love seeing all of the neat things you find, and it was because of a WTF video that I discovered you guys!

  59. Starsania

    I’m not really a tea or coffee fan so this kind of thing is a little beyond me. (hot chocolate on the other hand Yummy!) But the diver guy was indeed very cute. ^-^

  60. Haha, I want one of those!
    Though I like making tea in this adorable duck mwuaha
    Speaking of tea, just recently tried liquorice/raspberry blend, it’s awesome, anybody tried it?

  61. I started thinking nasty when I heard the word tea bagging….O_O

  62. I. Need. That.
    I’m also a tea junkie!!
    I drink tea! I also use the remaining tea thingies as exfoliator! And I also use tea to wash my face sometimes! Aaaand I think drinking tea is classy ;)

    • WHHAT!??? All this tea info I’m learning. You can use tea as an exfoliator? What do you do?

      • I mix it with honey to make a sticky mixture! :D Aaaand then I leave it on for 10-20 minutes. I wash everything off after scrubbing them all over my face. So refreshing~

        My parents got shocked when they saw me with tea thingies on my face Hahahaha

        • I’ve never used tea but I’ve been using coffee for quite some time ^^

        • Oooh. I’ve never used coffee. Maybe one of these days I’ll try that out. ^^ Thanks for the tip-off~

        • Yeah, I’ve heard about using coffee as an exfoliator, but it seems so gross, and I wouldn’t want my face to smell like that.

        • you can use it to smooth out your hands, just take dregs and mix them with liquid soap wash your hands with it [longer than usual] rinse and enjoy the uber smoothness ^_^

        • yeah~ coffee is what I know, it suppose to has more effect then the tea~^^

        • I’m using coffee too :)

        • Rukie Andrei

          Coffee mixed with lotion is great for reducing the appearance of cellulite temporarily.
          Before I go to the beach i mix some fast absorbing cream with ground coffee and rub it well on my thighs with some plastic gloves, making sure that the entire area that I’m trying to smooth is covered with a good thickness of the mixture (so you can’t see the skin underneath anymore) and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Then shower or wash off and you’ll have cellulite free thighs for beach day!
          It works really well for me but the effects only last a week max.

        • will have to try this out^^

        • I do it too occasionally!

        • Cyber_3

          I’ve seen on lots of fancy make-up shows that using brown sugar for an exfoliator works well (especially for men who are shy about such things) but I can totally see using tea because I love a good tea tree oil soap. Maybe instead of honey I should mix brown sugar with the tea…hmmm……
          Also putting (real) mayonnaise on your face at night will take off about 10-20 years if you’re consistent with it. My Mom has done this all her life and it totally works but it’s turned me off of mayonnaise myself, so I don’t know if I’m ready to try it, it’s dermatologically tested though.

        • using mayonnaise? O_O I never heard of it… I kind of want to try it but… it’s mayonnaise… Did I even make sense? LOL

        • Cyber_3

          It’s partially the egg whites, apparently that’s what’s going into fancy “youth” serums these days. Why buy expensive when you can get something cheap at the grocery store?

        • ah, so it’s because the egg whites… I can do that if it’s egg whites. I mean, using the real egg whites, not in the shape of mayonnaise. LOL.

        • Cyber_3

          You can, but pure egg whites won’t last as long, will dry hard on your face, and start to smell bad faster because they won’t be absorbed by your skin. Really, when I think about it, mayonnaise is a very convenient vehicle to get the stuff on your face and over all, cheaper by volume than fresh eggs.

        • Hmmm, sounds convincing. Maybe I just need to try it. I have mayonnaise. LOL.Thank you for the advice. XD

        • Using Mayo? I’ve heard of that before… Hmm I wouldn’t try that out :/ Sometimes seeing so much mayo makes me cringe. I dunno why :(
          Have you heard about putting snail essence? I’d like to see someone who’d actually put real and raw snail essence on their face (-o-) Or probably place a snail on their face and then let it crawl over. lol

          [Edit: Me talking about snail essence was really random. I'm sorry >.<]

        • I’m sorryyy. Too much sharing. lol I will edit that out ^^

        • Christine Person

          what could you use instead of honey? my sensitive skin always reacts to it. it’s really hard for me to do DIY skincare since most of them have honey in them.

        • Hi! I’m sorry if this is late ^^ You could try using Cetaphil, the gentle skin cleanser, to make a sort of paste/mixture with the remaining tea leaves/residue. Thats what I was using before I used honey.

      • You can even dump your remaining tea leaves (after you drink the tea) into a pot of plant. It would make them greener. Tested. LOL.

    • Yay…someone else knows the benefits of green tea. Green tea is an awesome anti-inflammatory agent to get rid of redness in your face, has anti-cancer properties, and assists with DNA repair. I’m in process of switching careers and I’m working for a skin care company/dermatologist and green tea is our magic weapon for skin care. Chamomile also makes for a great toner as well to help tighten pores.

      • If I could ‘favorite’ your reply, I would! lol Green tea is awesome!
        And I wish you luck for your career switching ^^

        • Thank you! It’s always great to find others who know the health benefits from natural sources and share it!!!…knowledge is power!

      • Green tea helps get rid of redness in the face? I have tons of redness! *goes out to buy lots* :)

        • Yep…read up on the power of the polyphenols in green tea…seriously one of the few scientifically proven results when it comes to tea health benefits…and its even has more conclusive results than vitamin c serums for anti-cancer properties. I’ll admit though I do also use a facial cream heavily concentrated with green tea in addition to drinking copious amounts (benefits of working for a skin care/dermatologist = awesome discounts on pricey but quality skin care products), and making my own green tea facial masks similar to Chillers.

        • Christine Person

          how do you make your facial masks?

        • I use the leaves of brewed green tea and mix it with honey, rice flour, and lemon juice. All are great for exfoliation, the flour is good for acne prone skin application and gives it smoother mask application (which i have adult onset acne, what a win for me). I also mix macha green tea powder with a clay I purchase at local health foods store (Whole Foods) for a simpler mask when I’m lazy.

  63. Kelly Jade Kroeker

    Sooo cool that you did something with tea :) nowww…. * insert stuck-up girl teenage voice* So like i totally had a conversation with my friend about tea recently, *end voice (it was getting annoying in my head)* and apparently when she was younger she actually got lessons on the actual Korean tea process… (i think you could call it that)… and i learnt that most American and Canadian peoples actually brew tea wrong… yeah… we actually burn our leaves rather than properly brew(??idk) it…….. NOW YOU KNOW…. (bill nye the science guy…*starts singing the theme song in head, and dances*) sorry for my randomness…lol.

    • Kelly Jade Kroeker

      I just woke up… so… yeah I’m a bit scatterbrained… and I now have the Bill Nye theme song and Shark week by japanese girls stuck in my head also… so yeah… that’s what you get.

  64. That’s adorable and all but stuffing the diver’s butt with tea sure takes time~ LOL

  65. 12 minutes?? Oh, Simon… Anyway, that’s adorable! If I had a tea strainer that adorable, maybe I’d drink more loose-leaf tea.

  66. omg awesome, I love TEA!!!! My favorite is green tea flavored with coconut and passionfruit!!!!

    • my childrens favorite is peppermint and ginger tea sweetened with honey, yummy!!!!

    • WHAAATTTT!!!?? That tea flavour exists?!!

      • yes and its the bomb diggity, I have been planning out a care package to send you guys and I will include a whole box of it for you guys to try out, there are 20 servings per box. My kids love peppermint tea with shredded ginger and it is sweetened it with honey instead of sugar. There is also green tea with honey dew melon and dragon fruit, and green tea with white mongosteen and peach.

    • omg! I love passionfruit green tea! My personal fav. is pomegranate green tea. But I love Earl Grey. There was this Russian loose leaf tea I had once, it was a black tea but had dehydrated diced apples, cinnamon shards, and I think bits of cloves…it was AMAZING! Best black tea I’ve had. I was addicted to it. I wish I could get my hands on some more.

  67. creepin'kpop

    I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! Where can one find this in Tea mad Britain!?

  68. I like tea too!!!! But coffee is also really good!

  69. LOL. I love tea. Indonesian tea though… Not any other tea… We love tea in a different way from English. We drink tea anywhere, anytime… It should be hot, sweet, and thick. :D

    • Tea can be thick? Please describe it to me! I can’t picture it!!!

      • Thick in color and taste. That’s the meaning of thick. We use black tea. But there are many brand of black tea and they had different flavor. In our culture tradition, we would mix some good brand of teas to make our own brand of tea (you know, “like our family special flavor”…). The mixed tea would make a thick tea (means it was dark in color and has a very strong flavor of tea), we just need to add sugar (as much as we like) and serve it hot (preferably in a cold weather) or pour it in a glass full of ice when it’s summer time.
        The pic would help you imagine it, but I usually put the tea into handkerchief so it won’t spread out anywhere… My family usually make it darker in color though… It was sold and serve everywhere, I think our people is like “tea junkies” or something… XD

        • Oh my! I want to try this!
          I’ve tried Indian tea before and it was also really thick in color and taste. You should also try it out sometime. Maybe you’ll like it too ^^

        • Indian tea? Like, mmmm, Assam? I would like to taste any other tea too. But I have tasted Earl Grey before and I thought it was pretty… Mmmm, how should I said it, bland. :|

        • Oh my gosh! I also thought Earl Grey was bland too! Not my cup of tea lol
          Uhh, Assam? Assam is black tea right?
          I can’t remember what my friend called it but all I can remember is that it tasted (and looked a bit) like milk tea but there was this distinct taste that ordinary milk tea doesn’t have. lol

        • Yessss, it’s not my cup of tea too… I think Assam is Indian tea but I don’t know if it’s black, or white, or red. Maybe it’s black. LOL.
          I don’t really know the name of our country’s tea too… We called it by their brand. Usually I would remember the taste when somebody talk about one brand of tea. All that brands have different flavor, and we have like hundreds it. It’s hard to take a favorite. :|

        • In my country too, we also identify by brand. Yeah, its hard sometimes to take a favorite because every variety of tea is awesome in its own way, right? :D
          We should totally make an international club/group for tea lovers that watch Simon and Martina’s videos! And then there’ll be like a tea session every music mondays and we’ll all be like classy and stuff while watching their in depth analysis of music videos. Imagine that! lol

        • LOL. I can imagine that! Tea isn’t deemed classy here unless it came from another country. LOL. But I can pretend that they are classy… XD

        • Sounds like my kinda tea! I like it very thick in color too, much darker than the pic. It’s not healthy but eh. Also, I’d like to try jasmine tea, tried green tea with jasmine leaves in it but never did it with black tea.

        • Amanda Machuca

          I LOVE JASMINE TEA!!! Perfect for cold nights. Though I normally only get it when I go out with my friends. They are big Shisha fans, so while they smoke, I drink Hot tea… stealing their tea meh tomatoe- toh-mah-toe.

  70. Thank you Eat Your Kimchi Nasty Reader =^_^=
