The humble tea bag has been around forever. Most people encounter them every single day and it would never occur to them that the design could be drastically improved.
Our founder worked in the NHS however, was frustrated by the way that it’s nigh-on impossible to use a tea bag without a teaspoon, and even then it’s tricky to avoid drippage. When was the last time you made a cup of tea and didn’t splash at least a few drops on the counter or leak tea from a soggy teabag en route to the bin?
So he came up with the idea for a teabag that is also effectively its own spoon – also known as ‘T-Sticks’. The product consists of a foil tube encasing loose tea leaves that infuses when dunked in hot water.
Due to its straw-like shape, it effectively acts as container and strainer, all in one. The product outstrips the traditional tea bag for convenience too, as it’s much easier to use when you’re on the go.
T-Sticks is also doing its bit for the planet by using only recyclable packaging, as well as reducing water wastage from thousands of teaspoons that no longer need to be washed.
This ingenuity of product design comes at no sacrifice of taste. Self-proclaimed unashamed ‘tea geeks’, the T-Sticks team spend their days “figuring out the complexities or rather, complexi-teas, of making the perfect brew.” The end result is a perfect blend of passion and innovation, creating a high-quality product.
Tea to enjoy whereever, whenever.
