Origami Tea Bag

Last autumn I remember seeing this novel idea of packaging tea in a bag that had been folded into a graceful bird. Recently a friend came across the link and sent it to me, thinking I might be interested. Yes, I was! I enjoyed scrolling through the many comments from around the world that had been left in the intervening time - there are lots of tea enthusiasts out there.

Although the Russian designer, Natalia Ponomareva, hasn't posted that she's found someone to produce and market the tea bags (the box was just a prototype), with any luck origami birds will soon be winging their way into our teacups.

They're beautiful. Half the pleasure in drinking tea is the ritual of it, and these lovely origami birds would lift tea bags into a whole new experience.

This is fun!! I love flowering tea - and watching it bloom...and this is equally as delightful.

I love them. It looks so pretty floating in the cup.

I might even start drinking tea if these became available!
