264. Bright Idea: Ineeka Tea Bags March 30, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Food and Drink, Product.
This Ineeka disposable tea bag has the tea leaves exposed from the top so you can pour hot water through the bag, and then leave the bag in to steep. Then you discard everything when done. And that is the part I have a problem with: it seems like a waste of materials and money. Ironically, the Ineeka tagline is “Cultivating Consciousness.” Apparently, they are not referring to environmental awareness. Ineeka website HERE, via Slashfood.com.
However, it is a pretty creative design, and thus, I consider it a Bright Idea.
True tea drinkers will use the various other less wasteful alternatives like tea balls, holders, or my personal favorite, the IngenuiTEA.
