origami teabags

We've finally gotten over "blossoming" tea (hand-tied bunches of tea leaves and dried flowers that expand into a floral shape when brewing a pot of tea).

But now there are origami tea bags (as the tea leaves expand, the bag unfolds into an origami animal).

Has anyone seen these available? or was it a one-off art thing? Sure looks like a commercial product (click on photo below), but that might be an ironic, arty thing.

  1. Very sadly, according to this website, it's just a concept. But hopefully one that will get picked up! I'd definitely buy it. :)

    1. Tea is artistry so bring on the artistry in design!

      1. I would totally buy that too! And so would my friend...
