TIPPING Teacup from Magisso

TIPPING Teacup

Inclined to have a cup of tea? Designed by Laura Bougdanos and Vesa Jaasko, this 2011 Red Dot Design honorable mention will turn your break into a meditative escape, steeped in contemporary style. The teacup has an unusual angled bottom that allows it to rest in two different positions. On one side is a screened compartment in which you place your favorite loose tea leaves. Pour hot water through the screen and allow it to steep. Once it’s done, simply tip the cup in the other direction, lifting the leaves up out of the water. The cup’s large size is perfect for cradling between your hands as you enjoy the warmth of your drink. Screen is removable for simple clean-up. Made from SAN (thermo resistant food grade plastic) and features a glossy interior and matte exterior. Dishwasher safe. Not microwave safe. Designed in Finland; made in China.

Summary: Innovative, useful and necessary.
I saw this cup online and instantly fell in love with the ingenious, original design.
I. HAD. TO. HAVE. THIS. CUP.

The basic idea behind this innovation is that the cup tilts towards the strainer, filled to brew and then tilted away when steeped, thus removing the water from the leaves so as to not over brew. Genius!

I was sad to see that it’s plastic. :(
