Fred and Friends, a brand of Lifetime Brands, will roll out a new collection of tea, coffee and cocktail accessories at the upcoming International Home + Housewares Show.
The new Como Tea Llama is an Andean-inspired infuser that can be used with a loose blend of tea. It is designed to stand upright in a mug as it steeps. It comes gift boxed and has a suggested retail price of $10.
Fred will also debut the Purr-Over Coffee Maker. To use the brewing set a consumer can place a standard #2 cone filter in the top section, fill with ground coffee, then pour hot water over the grounds. Fresh brewed coffee flows through the cone and directly into the mug below. The Purr-Over Coffee Maker is made of porcelain, comes in a gift box and has a suggested retail price of $25.
The Purr-Tea can be filled with loose tea leaves and placed inside a cup of hot water to steep a cup of tea. As the tea steeps, the paws of the Purr Tea hang over the edge of the cup. It has a suggested retail price of $10 and also comes in a gift box.
The Good Measure collection includes six letterpress paperboard coasters that feature classic cocktail recipes. The designs include five spirit styles: Whiskey, Rum, Tequila, Vodka, and two others. The set of six coasters has a suggested retail price of $10.
The Party Boat is designed to hold up to four aluminum shot glasses that fit snugly into its cork base. Packed in a gift box, it has a suggested retail price of $25.00.
