Tea interacts with three different senses: taste, smell, and touch. Tea is also a culture and experience, which is why the tea bags are bound in pairs. This encourages the receiver to share the moment of enjoyment of a warm cup of tea with a loved one. The tags are perforated so they can be split in two like a wishbone. They contain seeds meant to be planted, adding another level of depth to the ritual of tea, one that continues beyond a cup.
