I'm a big tea drinker—hot in the winter and iced in the summer—it's the second largest consumed beverage in the world (right after water)! I was excited to see Kicker Studio's newest project: a digital solution to the age-old conundrum of brewing the perfect cup of tea.
A year in the making, Kicker has done a great service of documenting their process from research to outlining design principles and initial concepts. Their final product, the Tea Tumbler consists of a teapot, infuser, and heater combined into one device. "It uses a physical interface that subtly incorporates technology to help the user make a perfect cup of tea. The Kicker Tea Tumbler gives making tea a technology kick, without taking the tactile experience away from making tea."
Check out their behind-the-scenes process video and introduction to the final product after the jump!
