Tea-time: Hourglass Tea Maker by Pengtao Yu

As a tea lover, I always keep an eye on those new designs for tea. And today, I will present you another amazing design for tea making, tea-time. Designed by Pengtao Yu, this elegant apparatus is modeled on the sand-filled hourglass which some still use today as a mode of keeping time. The teapot incorporates two clear globes and a central joint that actually functions as a dial to set the steeping time for the loose leaf infusion.

A flipping action, asking to starting the timer, sets the tea making process into action. Loose tealeaves and hot water do their steeping business and the ready tea slowly trickles down to the bottom beaker. Moreover, a spring loaded timer is used to keep the product low-tech and traditional. Such an intuitive and interactive design between tea leaves, water and steeping time! Just love it! [source]
