Tea-Making Chemistry Set Turns The Art Of Brewing Into A Science [Pics]

Tea-Making Chemistry Set Turns The Art Of Brewing Into A Science [Pics]

Atmospheric tea set takes on the form of a pulsating organism in the dark.

Whether directly or indirectly, this Glow Tea Set by designer Agustina Bottoni seems to fit in perfectly with the hype surrounding the season finale of Breaking Bad. It’s a chemistry-inspired tea brewing kit that features three flasks, handcrafted from cork, turned wood, and borosilicate glass.

The design heats and illuminates the tea by candlelight, a process which takes three to four hours. If you turn off the lights while the tea is brewing, it creates an atmospheric environment for you to enjoy until the tea is ready. The rotating flask enhances this experience by magnifying the light and creating the appearance of a living organism pulsating in the dark.


Regardless of whether you want to compare the creation of a cup of tea to a science experiment, or a living organism, this tea set will make sure that the process is anything but dull, giving you time to get lost in the light and shadows thrown around a dark room.
