Sticky Tea Stings

This Tea Bag Design Features a Stamp-Like Adhesive to Keep Bags From Falling In

— October 28, 2014 — Art & Design
This tea bag design was conceived to prevent the bag from falling in the cup. Created by London-based design studio Double Yolks, the Tag Tag is a concept that involves an adhesive tag that sticks to the outside of the mug when wet.

This low-cost solution will likely make a large difference for tea drinkers. This tea bag design holds itself in place when you pour the hot water in. Drinking tea is an important part of many different cultures, with many opting for bags over loose leaf teas for convenience's sake. Designer Tseng Yiwen was inspired by how people drink tea in China, for example.

After winning a Red Dot award, Yiwen and Dali Jun are looking for a patent to mass-produce the product.
