Quite often, the practice of tea drinking later involves the disposal of an item vital to its preparation, so this Cuptea concept makes the entire activity self-contained. If you're on the go you'll be throwing away your paper cup, and no matter where you are you'll have a teabag to discard. Designer Lee Seo-Jin suggests amalgamating the infuser and the vessel into one.

Two pleated Cuptea teacups have been conceived with the hexagonal one for flower tea and the chamfered square-based cup for loose leaf. Both are distributed flat and folded with herbs stored in the bottom, able to open and bloom into a small recyclable receptacle which simply requires hot water. The Cuptea concept allows the consumer to tote her own blend and collapsible mug in her purse or her pocket. Stats for Gorgeous Origami Teacups Trending: Older & Buzzing
