Sprout Spoon is a multi-functional tea solution comprising a foldable spoon, tea bag and stirrer in one. To use it, all you have to do is unfold and brew it in hot water for a cup of delicious tea. After use, the ‘squeeze and drip-free function’ means no additional napkin is required. The product is served in a Sprout-branded recyclable paper cup.

All the aspects of this revolutionary tea spoon are designed to leave no trace on the environment as the product is fully biodegradable. Sprout Spoon helps cut both costs and waste, and offers passengers aboard SunExpress flights an item that enables them to make a positive contribution to the world.

Sprout Spoon can be found in stores and aboard SunExpress flights out of Germany.
