Emphasizing the lovely floral flavors of its contents, T packaging by Maria Milagros Rodriguez Bouroncle looks like a beautiful bed of roses. In its closed position, the carton expresses its first impression as a slender, ebony-hued and minimalist example of a rectangular box with unclear contents. Unexpectedly, it unfurls elegantly to produce a patch of 28 origami blossoms.
Each of the little folded paper pockets of ivory, yellow, orange and red contains a single teabag. Each must be plucked from its plot and opened up like a blooming flower. The pretty casing becomes the delicate tag for the loose leaf infusion, decorating the side of your teacup and creating an exquisite sense of occasion while you sip.
