Rebirth / Thermochromic cup


The outer membrane of the cup is made of a thermosensitive material which will change color when heated water is above 40 degrees Celsius, and high-quality silicon glass is used in the cup. When hot water is poured into the cup, the cup gradually changes its color. The desert part below turns from yellow to green,the dark tree turns into a vibrant green tree.
