Hygienic tea bag / Tea bag

Hygienic tea bag

The tea bag after tea brewing always carries a lot of water. When the tea bag is taken out, there will be water drops on the table. It is easy to breed bacteria if it is directly thrown into the garbage can. So we designed the label of the tea bag into the shape of a hinge, with cotton thread passing through the middle. After tea brewing, just hold the label with one hand, and pull the cotton thread with the other hand to pull the tea bag into the label, so as to squeeze the water out. The hinge shaped label can also be clamped on the cup mouth to prevent the cotton thread and label from rushing into the cup when pouring water.
