2010: If you love tea, check out this “Christmas Tea” tree designed by a Croatian pair named Mint. Teabags are stapled to tree-shaped tabs. The tabs can be hooked onto the lip of the cup so it prevents your tab from falling into the hot water. Moreover, the Christmas tree tabs are cut in half, each half attached to its own tea bag. The concept of two halves “encourages people to consume a hot beverage with a dear person”. The design won the Core77 Notable Award, 2011. See how the Christmas Tea works.
