Origami Tea Bag

Yes, I'm supposed to be working on my tax receipts all morning ... yawn ... but instead I've been blog-surfing, and having a very enjoyable time!!! :-) (big smile)

Anyway, look what I've found!! I just think this is the greatest thing ever (well the greatest thing I've seen so far in 2010)!!

Designed by a very talented Russian lady Nathalia Ponomareva - what a genius!

As you all know I have a HUGE love of tea, and also anything with an oriental design.

This origami crane tea bag combines everything that I'm into - so cooool. I don't think these are in production yet, as I can't find anywhere to buy them. (I've spent about half an hour looking so far). But if anyone out there in blog-land has seen them for sale anywhere, pleeeeeeeeease let me know!

Now that this is out of my system, perhaps I can get stuck into some work ..... or perhaps I can blog-surf some more. Maybe I'll just pour myself a delicious tea (blackcurrant and peach is on the menu for today) and see what happens! :-)

Have a great day everyone - hope you enjoy this little find as much as I have!

What a COOL idea - this lady is a genius - great talking point when friends are around - imagine their surprise if they got a glass of tea like this :D

Tracey said...

What a mega idea! Hows Patsy? She's been a bit quiet lately! xxx

Dragonfly said...

Hi Tracey, Thanks for enquiring after Patsy. She's very well - she's also been quite busy. Her friend Libby has been visiting her a bit lately, so she's been very busy playing (actually neglecting her assistant duties a little). I'll post again about her soon!!
Cheers, Karen

I had seen that teabag. So much effort and here's me throwing leaves into a pot that I've always just emptied the cold tea from. Not very beautiful.
Now, there is NO WAY you are 40. Absolutely not. Not possible.

As far as I know, these tea-bags are not available for sale. I remember seeing them a while ago and spending time looking on the internet. The girl who designed them did for a project but couldn't afford to put them into production. Unfortunately, a good idea is only as good as you can afford to make it.

That is SUCH a cute idea! I love tea too- I'm currently sipping some hot peppermint tea :)

CambridgeLady said...

I am meant to be doing my tax return this morning but find myself on blogger too :-O Far more fun!

These tea bags are so great, hope you find where you can buy them. You have a wonderful sense of humour - besides surfing blogland is much more fun than all those pesky tax receipts!
Congratulations on the Duchess of Tea's Reagal Blog award - yours is regal indeed!
Happy surfing!

I am glad you found these tea bags too. I found them last November and I love them! But it's not in production yet, so we can't buy them yet. I will let you know if I found some good Japanese tea!

Holly said...

That is awesome. We are huge tea people here. I need that tea bag. It would be great for weddings too!

I am not a tea (or coffee) person, but recently I got hooked on hibiscus tea!
