Paper Tea Set

Traditional Taiwanese tea culture is based on careful preparation of the tea leaves, tea pot and cup. Tea leaves and hot water should first be placed in the tea pot, revealing and preserving the tea’s aroma. The tea should be poured into the tea cup after a precise duration of time, imparting the best taste. UPDATE: Check out the instruction video below

The packaging is made up of one folded paper tea pot containing a tea bag and a tea cup. Thanks to the small volume of the foldable structure, tea tasting is possible anywhere that hot water is available. The presence of all three pieces of the tea set preserves the sophistication of the traditional Taiwanese tea culture while making it more convenient.
