Introducing T-Fill: Proper British tea from E3D

At E3D we work hard to push the limits of what's capable with at-home 3D printing. With our range of professional and experimental filaments we go beyond what's expected in material extrusion.


T-Fill™ is not only the next step in filament innovation, but a loving homage to our homeland. As proud as we are of having a global customer base, there's something about England's clear, blue skies and delicate untouched beauty that cannot fail to delight. T-Fill combines two of our greatest joys: high-quality professional-grade 3D printing filament, and tea.

We've taken pains to source the very best in local produce. We choose our tea from the green fields of Oxfordshire, the perfect tea-growing climate.

We then dry the tea and delicately grind it into a fine powder. Traditional tea companies may scoff at this use of tea 'dust' but that is only because they're jealous and have to use 'tea strainers' or 'tea bags'. These primitive implements use a mesh to prevent leaves remaining in the cup once the tea is brewed. They are unable to grind their tea as finely as we do as it would escape the mesh and create a highly 'dusty' cup of tea.

With T-Fill™, these concerns are a thing of the past. We suspend the ground tea leaves in food-grade plastic, which is then extruded into ready-to-use spools of filament.

The result is as simple as it is effective. Simply 3D print yourself a cup of T-Fill™, pour in boiling water and in a few minutes you will have a fresh cup of tea that tastes like nothing you've ever had before. Nothing could be easier or faster.

T-Fill™ is available from Saturday April 1st, 2017. Enjoy!

And now introducing SugarFull™! Filament 100% comprised of fine sugar, so that you can print your own sugar cubes!
