These Shark-Shaped Tea Bags Ooze Blood Red Tea

Rebecca OConnell

If you think these fish tea bags are too safe and calming, consider something that evokes a little more danger. Daisho Fishery Company created tea bags that resemble swimming sharks when dropped in hot water.

The tea bags are available in two shapes and flavors: the gory great white shark, which comes with a scuba diver tag, and the whale shark with a boat-shaped tag, according to Mashable.

While the great white shark is filled with a mix of rose hip and hibiscus that lends to the red hue that emerges when the shark is dunked into hot water, the whale shark is filled with green tea.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to add them to your collection yet. Daisho is currently crowdfunding on Makuake to bring the shark-shaped teas to customers. They hope to eventually raise one million yen (about $9500) to move forward.
