The Heartea is an interactive tumbler which shows the temperature of the content through ambient lightening. It displays three different states telling you the best time to drink your beverage (ice beverage, tea and coffee). It was designed for the “Nanum” project, which is a charitable project that donated all profits (1.7 million USD in 2010) towards educational scholarships of needy children.
