Tipping Teacup

One day, when I open up the Urban Outfitters of tea stores, this little thing will be a bestseller.

This 2011 Red Dot Design winner 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.
