In the office, when a customer visit, we will provide customers disposable paper cups to drink tea with tea-leaves. Later on, tea-leaves will scatter in tea. The tea-leaves will come into the mouth of the drinker and give the drinker great inconvenience, who need to continue to spit tea-leaves from the mouth of the drinker. The design takes the way of straight edge in part of edge without affecting of the cups stacked. It can be folded to the inside and make some mesh-like holes at the crease, so that it can stop tea-leaves which is easy to enter mouth. Tt is simple and convenient and will not affect the current production mode of transport.
