In my Designing Meaningful Interactions class, we were asked to rethink a bad experience. I chose the tea drinking experience. While actually steeping the tea in hot water is fine, we all run into the same issue when the tea bag is ready to be removed. You either have to get up and throw away your tea bag, which kind of kills the zen vibe. Or, you can put the wet tea bag on your table but that gets messy. That’s why I created a rough prototype for a new type of tab that can serve as a tea bag holder to spare you the mess.
