Tea Bag Notch, in action! - I order tea from Starbucks and they often double up the cups in order to keep the tea bag tag from falling into the hot water. Perplexed by this waste of an extra cup, I considered many solutions but settled on a spiral notch punched into the cardboard cup holder to anchor the tea bag string. This is a cheap, simple solution that would dramatically reduce cup usage without adding to costs in a significant way. It's also really easy to use. I promise.
