Many people brew their tea with manufactured tea bags because they are fast and easy to use. People usually dangle the string and tab outside the cup, which can be annoying when one wishes to drink. IPEe also addresses this issue.
IPEe consists of three elements: buoyant material containing scented tea, edible petals that open in the water, and a transparent “stamen” that rises from the flower and makes it easy to remove the tea bag from the water. The typical teabag tab is thus transformed into a beautiful flower that floats on the water while the tea brews. It encourages one to slow down and enjoy their tea with a relaxed frame of mind.
