i Tea Server / tea ceremony machine in home

i Tea Server

In Eastern Asia, Buddhism and Taoism had intergrated the religious practice called tea ceremony. Through the process from brewing to drinking tea, the tea ceremony would help people reach the mental peace.
“i Tea Server” brings the tea ceremony into daily life. It utilizes technology not only to brew cups of good tea, but lead the participants to release their stress from the hustle and bustle lives.
It is both a smart tea machine and ceremony host, using light and sound to lead the participants to each step. Through the waiting and meditation process, the participants could follow “i Tea Server” to clear their mind and get spiritual peace.
