Origami Teabag

Based on origami theory and inspired by traditional Chinese oil-paper umbrellas, this creative designed origami teabag uses its own package as an cup lid to slow down heat dissipation and make tea taste better. With its elegant form, it is both functional and beautiful. People will enjoy the peaceful moment when they have some tea with this umbrella-like origami teabag.
