HAMBURG, Germany (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Folks are really warming up to the idea of tea bagging a high-profile politician.

German company donkey-products.com has created a line of tea bags attached to cut-outs of famous Democrats like Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and France’s Nicolas Sarkozy.

The politicians’ arms are open as if they’re leaning back and relaxing, which keeps the tea sachet afloat in lieu of a string.

Florian Berger is one of the co-creators of “DemocraTea” and says the tea bags are being warmly received.

Apparently, people really like the idea of being able to literally have tea with famous politicians.

Tea time with the Queen Of England is also possible with their “RoyalTea” bags, which feature the whole Royal Family.

Berger says they also offer tea with Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and James Dean attached to the other end and are continuing to brainstorm which celebs will be tea bagged next.
