SLOPING MESH / cup

SLOPING MESH
SLOPING MESH

Normally, the tea-cup we used everyday has a strainer that helps separate the tea-leaves from water. In fact, the strainer is a mesh. We will find that the hot water infiltrates through the mesh quite slowly when pouring water into the cup. Usually, the crazy hot water may spill out of the cup burning us.
Now, We set the mesh(or the strainer) with an angle to make it sloping. when we pouring water through the mesh, the air in the cup can move out easily with the water infiltrating quickly and smoothly.
