Who better than a British designer to dream up a smart modern tea pot. Nick Munro—based in Chester, the United Kingdom—takes a classic silhouette we all recognize and updates it by using 18/10 stainless steel as the main material. "A long time ago I visited a tea warehouse where they had a myriad of loose tea in boxes from all over the world. That got me thinking about where tea comes from and all the different types of leaves and flavours that are produced. The Spheres infusers were therefore inspired by the idea of tea leaves from around the world and I designed the infuser basket to work with all types of loose leaf flavors," writes Munro on his site.
