Tea of the Time / Tea of the Time

Tea of the Time
Tea of the Time

When modern people make tea, they often choose tea bags or ordinary tea-making tools and also deal with some other chores when waiting. Therefore, it is quite difficult to control the appropriate immerging time finally resulting in thicker or thinner tea. Thus, we design a tea-making tool functioned with a timer available to automatically separate tea from hot water.
With this problem solved, we also hope the art of traditional making tea can be infused into the modern busy life leaving unnecessary errands behind but the brand new experience of making tea.
