DETAILED DESCRIPTION

CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

[0038] This application is based upon and claims the benefit of priority from the prior Chinese Patent Application No. 2016200407192, filed on 15 Jan. 2016, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

[0039] Illustrative embodiments of the invention now will be described more fully hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings. Indeed, the invention may be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the embodiments set forth herein; rather, these embodiments are provided so that this disclosure will satisfy applicable legal requirements. Like numbers refer to like elements throughout.

[0040] Referring to FIG. 1 to FIG. 3, a holder 1 for beverage bag of the present invention, said holder 1 comprises a holder stem 2, an oval holder body 3 disposed at the front end of holder stem 2 and integral with the holder stem 2, as to conveniently stir the beverage in the water; two clamping elements 4 disposed on the holder body 3, and one end of the clamping element 4 is fixed on the holder body 3; the clamping structure 5 of hair clip structure is formed between the clamping element 4 and the holder body 3.

[0041] The front end of holder body 3 has a notch 6. In the direction of length of holder stem 2 from the holder stem 2 to the holder body 3, the notch 6 lies in the central longitudinal axis X of holder stem 2. Of course, the notch 6 may be parallel to the central longitudinal axis X of holder stem 2 or forms the acute angle with the central longitudinal axis X, as to make the string 9 of beverage bag pass through said notch 6 and said string 9 is hold.

[0042] The holder stem 2 has a slot 7. In the direction of length of holder stem 2 from the holder body 3 to the holder stem 2, the slot 7 forms the acute angle with the central longitudinal axis X of holder stem 2 as to hold the string 9 of beverage bag.

[0043] Also referring to FIG. 4 to FIG. 5, when using the holder, the beverage bag 8, including but not limit to tea bag or coffee bag is clamped into the clamping structure 5 of hair clip structure, then the string 9 of beverage bag is passed through said notch 6, wrapped around the holder stem 2 and finally said string 9 is hold into the slot 7. Then, the water is added into the cup, and the water is gently stirred by the holder clamping the beverage bag.

[0044] Referring to FIGS. 5 to 9, the differences between example 1 and example 2 are: said holder 1 further comprises a suspended component 10; said suspended component 10 comprises a suspended clip 11 and an engaging portion 12 which are integral. Said holder stem 2 comprises two opposite side surfaces, a sliding groove 13 and the steps 14 for sliding groove are disposed in each side surface, and several limit stops 15 are disposed in one sliding groove 13; said engaging portion 12 comprises two opposite slippers 16 cooperated with two sliding grooves 13 of holder stem 2 and sliding therein and the channel 17 connected with two slippers 16, said channel 17 accommodates the steps 14 for sliding grooves sliding therein; several engaging trough 18 are disposed on the opposite face of one slipper 16 as to cooperate with the limit stops 15 and limit it, thus the suspended component 10 is fixed to the holder stem 2.

[0045] Referring to FIGS. 10 and 11, when using the holder, based on the depth of a cup, the position of suspended component 10 fixed on the holder stem 2 is adjusted by the cooperation between the engaging troughs 18 and the limit stops 15 at different positions. Then, the beverage bag 8, including but not limit to tea bag or coffee bag is clamped into the clamping structure 5 of hair clip structure, then the string 9 of beverage bag is passed through said notch 6, wrapped around the holder stem 2 and finally said string 9 is hold into the slot 7. The suspended clip 11 may be clipped on the edge of a cup, inside of cup or outside of cup. Then, the water is added into the cup, and the water is gently stirred by the holder clamping the beverage bag.

[0046] In the example 2, several limit stops 15 may respectively be disposed in both sliding grooves 13. Accordingly several engaging trough 18 are disposed on the opposite face of both slippers 16 as to cooperate with the limit stops 15 and limit them.

[0047] In these two examples, the holder stem 2 and holder body 3 are integral, but they may are separate single pieces connected to each other together. The holder body 3 may be of any shape.

[0048] In addition, in these two examples, the clamping element 4 may be single element, and no clamping structure is formed between the clamping element 4 and the holder body 3. Further, the holder stem 2 may be manufactured into folded holder stem based on practical needs.

[0049] In addition, the holder for beverage bag may be manufactured by plastic, metal or any suitable material. In these two examples, the holder for beverage bag is manufactured by plastic.
