Designed by Taiwan-based studio Charm Villa, the fish tea bag is put together both by hand and by machine in a 16 step process. While this might t seem a bit overdone, people can’t get enough of the creativity of the fish tea bag and it’s much more fun and playful than latte art.
Adding to the novelty is that when you give the fish tea bag a tug, it gives the impression that the little critter is swimming in your cup. It might seem just a little creepy too, but mainly it’s quite cute.
