Bamboo Leaves Teabags


Competition: Spark:Spring Student
Designer: Yang Chen
Design Type: Packaging
Company / Organization / School: Zhang Jian Design Studio.

This tea bag design replaces the label of the tea bag with an actual bamboo leaf. Put the tea bag into the cup and the bamboo leaves and tea bag will steep naturally in the cup. When drinking tea, the floating leaves will prevent us from drinking the hot tea. In order to remove the leaves from our mouths, we will blow gently, blowing away the bamboo leaves and cooling the tea at the same time. The act of drinking tea becomes very fluid in an invisible way, alerting the tea drinker to the rolling hotness of the tea.
