Correct Tea Angle

Stuff like strength, color, flavor, brew and steeping are commonplace to tea connoisseurs; plebs like me get by with simply boiling water & milk with some tea masala and that’s that. Fusspots who consider the most important thing for making tea is the time to steep it, and finding profit time for strength of the tea is bothersome, can indulge in the T-cup. It’s this special cup with an angle on the bottom so that it can be tipped to a side. The tipping controls the strength of tea without taking out the tealeaves or teabag from the water. The tea infuser slides to the side when you want to sip the tea.

Oh the fuss, anyone wants to share my Masala Chai?

    i like this idea alot~~

    Looks incredibly unbalanced; one small tip could knock it over.

    Also, that’s a lot of tea leaf for just one cup.

    Alternative idea, that I would pitch to YD for the sheer irony of it:

    Have a timer that is water activated, that slowly stops the tea from contacting the water by “Reverse osmosis surface tension properties”. This timer is powered by the heat of the water. Afterwards, just pour the tea leaves into a compost bin.

    BAM! eco-friendly, science mumbojumbo, AND something about electricity all in one design! YD will have a field day.

    Looks like the scaled down the concept of the Ronnefeldt Tilting Tea Pot . . . nice

  • Perhaps a video demo of this cup made from clear-glass would demonstrate if this will actually work…

  • Todd says:

    Yet another design that doesn’t properly brew loose tea (or a tea bag for that matter). The idea is that the tea leaves need to expand as much as possible and therefore release all their flavor.

    Also the cup in this picture looks to be made of some sort of plastic and should be glass or ceramic.

    Designers need to fully understand what they are designing.
