We're Gonna Need a Bigger Tea Cup

February 4, 2009

Pablo Matteoda, a designer from Argentina, has created a creative way to brew your tea, and he calls it “Sharky.” The fin travels around your tea – stalking through the Earl Grey deep – as the body of the shark(made of steel mesh) releases the tea to brew.

This dude has made tea time into a bone-chilling bloodbath.  That is, bone-chilling for those of us who are scared of sharks (Which, incidentally, should be everybody because they have skin made of teeth and not even cancer can kill them).  Here's what the designer says: 

INFUSION means to extract certain properties from an soluble ingredient such as tea leaves , herbs or fruit by soaking in liquid (water) until it gets saturated. So we can say that a infuser is the in charged of make this happen. This is a ludic point of view about the color given off from the phenomenon, wich makes more interesting the waiting of the whole process.
