Tea Maker Nº1 is a modern interpretation of a gaiwan, which translates to “making tea with skill”—a traditional Chinese loose leaf tea brewing vessel. The small volume is ideal for making multiple short infusions, highlighting different characteristics of the tea. The double-walled glass design keeps the steep temperature stable and the outside cool to the touch. No strainer required: one finger simply pulls back the lid and—with a flick of the wrist—the tea pours out of the small opening into the tea bowl.
Tea Maker Nº1 was funded on Kickstarter in August 2016.
Kickstarter is the recipient of the 2020 National Design Award for Design Visionary.
