Flexible Tea Stick / Tea bags

Flexible Tea Stick
Flexible Tea Stick

The traditional tea sticks are made by putting the leaves in a cylindrical space, so we make tea by stirring the sticks. But there is a problem. The leaves unfold very slowly in the confined space, and it seems to take forever to make a cup of tea. In this design, the part of the stick holding the leaves is made with screen-like flexible material that allows squeezing, and the water pressure help achieve the uniform unfolding of leaves. When it is done making tea, the flexibility again allows the removal of water in leaves by squeezing. Therefore, the problem that comes from the saturated tea leaves thrown into trash can is solved.
