Tea Infuser.

Glass. Hand-blown.

Personal Tea Moment.

Considering the well being of our planet, I searched for a alternative to the disposable tea bag. How can I take the almost ritual experience of tea making to an "Eco friendly" place? Picturing myself holding a mug, getting my hands warmer, and breathing in the aromatic steam, made me choose the round glass ball. Inside is a glass bubble to contain the infusion, thus replacing the tea bag. It felt right to keep the material transparent in order to witness the process of the water changing color as the leaves soften and the spices mix. Preserves the elegant moment of tea drinking while encouraging an Eco-conscious mind.

Made as part of a technical skills course in my second year.
