A tea lover from the United Kingdom arranged for her final resting place to be a coffin designed as a box of her favorite brand, according to a report. Tina Watson, 73, had her unusual last request fulfilled at her funeral when she was buried in a red Typhoo tea coffin. Watsons daughter said she gave specific instructions before her death, objecting to a typical wooden coffin.
I want to be buried in a coffin that looks like a giant box of tea bags, the mom reportedly said. The request was fitting for the tea enthusiast, who guzzled as many as 40 cups of tea a day, the outlet reported. Its typical of mom, her daughter Debs Donovan said. She had a wicked sense of humor and drank about 30 or 40 cups of tea a day, every day. Guests watched as the custom coffin, which read Typhoo: Great British Tea since 1903, arrived in a hearse at the Gilroes Crematorium.
