The Hourglass Tea-Time Design Concept by Pengtao Yu was inspired by the hourglass, this particular unique creation upgrades your convenience of producing and drinking tea to a increased level. Over-steeping causes your current tea to taste bitter or astringent, hourglass can be a traditional tool that tea connoisseurs use, having this as inspiration, Tea-Time utilizes the same way to control the steeping time, simply flip it and also the liquid tea drains into the bottom cup just like the particular sand in an hourglass.
Tea-Time gadget consists of two thermal insulated double wall cups as well as a mechanical timer. Both of these cups are connected to the core timer unit through rubber rings. Basically fill the bottom cup with hot water and also tea leaves, set the timer, snap the top cup along with flip it. When the steeping time has been reached, this device can drain the tea from the top to the bottom cup while leaving the tea leaves intact. Instead of utilizing high-tech mechanism, Tea-Time incorporates any spring-load timer to keep this device low-tech as well as traditional in nature.
