Jasmine Tea Cube
2011: Philip Chapman-Bell created this Jasmine Tea Cube which can be used to hold tea leaves or pearls. The container comes as a cube (made with square filter paper) or as a ball (made wtih round filter paper).
The best part of it is that the containers will actually hold the tea leaves within as the tea is seeped in hot water. Not commercially available but you can make one yourself with crease patterns provided on flickr. Design created in June 2010. Photos taken in June 2011 by Rebecca.
