True lovers of tea will know that the soothing hot drink is best brewed in a pot. The lazy tea bag in a cup method might be quicker and involved less ‘work’, but it also results in a less satisfying cuppa. A teapot on the stove is one of the oldest methods but it brings with is the problem of not knowing when the water is hot enough. The designers at Vessel Ideation have come up with a neat solution to this dilemma. Their ‘One’ teapot changes colour when the perfect temperature has been reached.
Made from enamel coated stainless steel, the ‘One’ pot produces a fantastic blue floral pattern when optimum temperature has been reached. Acting as a sort of global hypercolor for tea making, the product is certainly a curious invention!
For lovers of more traditional tea-making products, Dotmaison have a superb collection of tableware and products just right for tea time. The (above) superb designs from Wedgwood are one such collection that can bring a sense of class to every table. Happy tea time!
