Aromea is a twist on the tea bag that gives you control over the strength of your tea. Its unique functionality lies in the innovative yet simplistic design of the packaging. Each bag features a two-axis, squeezing paper mechanism that allows you to extract the goodies without getting your hands dirty. Let it steep and then just give it a squeeze for an extra boost of flavor and aroma.
Aromea is a tea bag that is a game changer when it comes to its user experience and the level of control one can have over his/her tea's taste. It is 100% biodegradable product as it is made from handmade paper/sheet. The whole mess and the unsatisfying taste from regular tea bag usage can now be forgotten.
At least 10% of tea extract is wasted with regular tea bags after use, as there is no way to extract flavor from the tea without making a mess. This also affects the taste of the tea, and the user has no control over this.One has to either wait for a long time to get the tea infused well or squeeze the tea bag, which are both annoying solutions.
- Aromea has a two axis squeeze mechanism (vertical direction) done using the extended thread as a loop which squeezes the tea bag
- The second level of squeezing is done by bringing the V-Flap down and pressing it with your hands without even touching the tea bag
- Through this 2-level squeezing mechanism, one can get the exact taste of the tea that they want ( ex: strong tea- medium tea)
- Prototypes were made and tested successfully. The product is under patenting process as of now
- Aromea also has biodegradable packaging
