I am forever a sucker for cool packaging and design, and I loveloveloveLOVE these little individual tea bags from Tea Forté.
The stem and leaf are the “string” for the tea bag.
However, caveat emptor: you must be smarter than the tea bag, or you might experience the same thing we did yesterday afternoon, upon making our traditional post-work cuppa.
Himself, handing me my mug, ostensibly filled with English Breakfast: “Mmmm. This is good tea. I’ll drink it if you don’t like it.”
Me, taking my first sip: “Hmm. It’s good. It’s got something different in it, doesn’t it? Something citrusy, perhaps?”
Himself: “Mine’s not so good. Not very Earl Grey-ish at all.”
You can guess the rest.
