Anywhere you have access to hot water you can celebrate traditional tea culture with Dao Cha. Constructed from a single watertight, folded sheet of paper, Dao Cha is a three-part paper tea set in one slim design.
The set includes a teapot containing a tea bag, as well as a single paper cup. The presence of all three preserves the sophistication of the traditional tea ceremony while making it both portable and handy.
Dao Cha took three months of development and testing to complete, with most of this time devoted to finding the right paper material. It had to be thick enough to hold the weight of the water, durable enough for temperatures as high as 80 to 100 degrees Celsius, and thin enough to fold into a small package. Next, the designers found a way to fold the teapot from just a single sheet of this paper to prevent spillage. The result is a unique paper tea set that is both functional and traditional.
