The Tipping Point

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.

Just don't flll too much or tip too much because the tea leaves might overflow. Once my mom made these adjustments she says they work perfectly.

Inventive, unique tea cup

Great for hot tea. Holds heat well and has a large capacity. Easy to use with tea bags. A bit more challenging with loose tea.

Great idea

My wife loves the product. Only challenge is getting used to the way it tips. She's had it spill a few times as she's set it down after drinking and accidentally spilled it forgetting about the way it tips, usually when full after first few sips.

This tea cup is very easy to use and very functional! It has a great design to it that my boyfriend really likes. The only thing he didn't like is that it doesn't keep the tea warm that long. Other than that it's great!

I got two of this product for my mother. Somehow she always breaks the top part of her teapot. And for awhile she was using mismatching set. I found this product and now she doesn't have to worry about breaking the top. The only complaint is that the volume is too much, but she splits it between her and my father and solved that problem.
