Tea Caddy

In Taiwan, tea industry has been a significant business for decades. More than 50% of population drink tea everyday. The overall process from tea agriculture to consumption forms an essential part of our life. I try to extend this scenario with my idea – Tea Caddy, making this process become a personal experience of tea.

Cross-cultural Beverage
Tea caddies are commonly used in both Eastern and Western culture. Due to its long lifespan and ease of fabrication, metal has been the most sustainable material to preserve the tea. Metal cans are adopted worldwide, often being used for preserving tea or dry seeds. stainless steel, aluminum, and copper are the most common materials for these caddies. tea drinking is an essential part of our life as same as coffee in the Western culture. therefore, i perceived the idea to combine the brewing feature with this personal teaware for not only preserving the tea but also being used as a brewing set to complete the tea-drinking scenario.
