Origami tea

I came across these clever little teabags, designed by Natalia Ponomareva, and think they are adorable.  Based on the principles of the Japanese art of origami, the bag expands as the tea infuses.  So it changes from it’s original shape, such as these birds here made from green berry teabags. The packaging is clean and simple, adding an organic and sophisticated feel to the design.  A teabag is the last place I expected to find the use of origami, but I think that the concept works well and they make a nice novelty product for a tea lover like me!
