Teien Sustainable Tea

 
 

Teaien Sustainable Tea

Teaien was created to give new life to a common single-use item: the tea bag. This project is an alternative to the traditional tea bag created to help promote seed diversity, local and personal gardening, as well as reducing kitchen waste.

The six varieties of tea are presented in a cherry box which was hand-stitched to avoid using glue.

 
 

Inside are tea bags with tags made of handmade seed paper which can be planted to grow the corresponding variety of herbal tea.

Each box contains two bags of each variety of tea which can be identified by the stamped leaf on the tags.
