It's time to put down that cup of tea and consider wearing it. Okay, you don't have to do that right this minute. But, Sacramento-based cheese maker and fashion designer Sacha Laurin is literally making tea clothing.

In the above Fox News interview, Laurin's collection is described as kombucha couture -- kombucha meaning "fermented tea." She creates dresses, accessories and more from escobi in a process that involves green tea and cultures found in cheese, a living bacteria which is then manipulated into a leather-like material. The designer even called it a sort of "vegan leather," and her clothing is sustainable and eco-friendly.

Watch the video above for more on Sacha Laurin's intea-resting collection.
