So new Tea tumbler design coming soon! sneak peak inside

Hi everyone! Hope the new year is treating you all nicely.

So i’ve hinted at this before but now i have a little sneak peak at some of my concept art plus a little bit about its functionality, and i am patent pending!

So here is some early high level concept art of the tumbler that i used to focus in on the design:

So what makes this so special? Well it will have a built-in infuser that can lock into place under the lid, out of contact from water. So you are in charge for how long your tea steeps. So you will be able to steep your tea, lock it under the the lid and drink it without having to remove the lid or deal with wet tea leaves or even dispose of them until you’re ready all with no hassle! Theres a few other very cool features that it has but i’ll let you know about those later.

So what do you all think so far?

I’m not 100% sure exactly what you mean about the lid, but I’m definitely interested!

I think they mean something like Aladdin’s design

Were there’s an infuser that, via a lever, can be lowered into the water, and then (once steeped), can be flipped up inside of the lid, to prevent over-steeping.

How long would it keep liquids hot or cold?

Thanks for that comment. I will try to come up with a better explanation!

Well it is going to be double walled, so fairly long. Without testing a prototype (coming very soon) i can’t tell you exactly. I’m shooting for at least 4-6 hours.

So…what’s the status of your product? It looks like a modern yet functional design. When/Where can I get my hands on it?

That looks absolutely beautiful. Looks like the perfect replacement for my trusty Thermos when it finally gives in and breaks.
