High quality electric kettle, which assists in the heating of water and the filtering of tea leaves, making the contemporary drinking of tea a more efficient and enjoyable experience.
The project consists of the following components:
-Base: when connected to electricity, it heats the water content, either of the whole kettle or of a single cup. It has a controller that heats the water at different temperatures, depending on the type of tea that will be prepared: black, oolong, green or white.
-Teapot: used to heat 4 conventional cups of tea and includes a thermal envelope made of solid wood, which is removable and keeps the heat of the liquid, while protecting the user. It has a lid to which the tea strainer is inserted.
-Cup: used to heat a single cup of tea and has its own thermal wooden envelope. It has its own lid to which the same tea strainer is inserted.
-Strainer: used for the filtering of tea, it can be used both on the Teapot and the Cup.
