Just another reason to love tea.

A UK-based start-up has found a use for your leftover tea.

Dust London transforms recycled tea waste into origami-inspired homewares, spanning plants, vases and coasters.

The company does so by mixing leftover tea with a non-toxic binder. Once the desired consistency is achieved, the material is poured into a pre-existing mould. The resulting collection is an aesthetically-pleasing range of decorative pieces, with colours varying depending on the tea. Current flavours include peppermint, English breakfast, chamomile, rooibos and plain ol’ black tea.

Products are available to purchase via Kickstarter, with an expected delivery date of January-February 2019.
