Origami Tea

I'll never give up coffee but I've been trying to replace my diet coke addiction with tea. I think the switch would be much easier if only there was some sort of clever design involved. Enter the Tea Pod.

I prefer black teas but, truth be told, I wouldn't even care what kind of tea was in a Tea Pod. Designed by Elisabeth Soós, the Tea Pod's tag unfolds into an origami boat that floats on the surface of your tea cup. What a simple and perfect design (although I'm a bit partial being an origami lover).

Elisabeth is currently seeking a producer so it is not yet available in the market. Until then, I suppose I'll have to settle for the average tea tag. [via designspotter]
