RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This product is designed based on a series of qualitative market research on the global tea consumption. Interviews are conducted with targeted users and tea experts to develop the design solutions including the best tea brewing formula, design, functionality and user interface. Finally a few prototypes to test the usability.

CHALLENGE:
As there is a limited number of existing functional tea makers in the market, there isn't much reference, especially around designing the user interface and user-centric operation. As there are different tea brewing methods, it takes time to conduct research on the best tea brewing formula that fits the design and technology.
