I have a confession to make, I love tea, strong black tea (no messing around with Rooibos or herbals) with milk, no sugar and a comfortable spot in the sun and I am a happy camper. I also love designer things, clean lines and practicality that makes my heart beat faster. But this next product combines both my loves, tea and design. The Tea-Time Tea Steeper designed by Pengtao Yu is, in a word, gorgeous; it consists of three parts that separate so that you can place the water and tea leaves in one section, the timer is in the middle and the other section where the drinkable tea ends up after it’s steeped. Unfortunately this steeper is only conceptual at the moment.
The Tea Time Steeper was entered into the 2011 Spark Awards, Concept Category.
