One of history's oldest drinks is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, with companies offering unusual blends and organic options in trendier packaging, to coffee giant Starbucks opening it's first tea shop.
Besides it's health benefits, tea also stands for empowerment, as it creates a way for people to experiment and make their very own blends. With this in mind, Argentinian designer Agustina Bottoni created this beautiful, chemistry-inspired tea brewing set that features three flasks, handcrafted from cork, turned wood, and borosilicate glass.
The “Glow Tea Set” is perfect to create a slower, more considered approach to tea brewing by elevating it to a contemplative process.
The design heats and illuminates the tea by candlelight, making a spectacle of steeping over the course of three to four hours, and the rotating flask magnifies the light so that it glows, a unique, biophilic light.
Regardless of whether you want to compare the creation of a cup of tea to a science experiment as in “Breaking Bad,” this tea set will make sure that the process is anything but dull. You can make it any way you want. You’re not limited to what someone hands you, can make it as strong as you want, add whatever you want. It’s completely up to you, the brewer, as to how you consume your tea.
