I drink tea all day and all night.
But I need to drink it boiling hot. I just can't drink lukewarm tea at all.
As a result,in work, it is not unknown for me to shove my cup in th emicrowave just to "give it a blast" if I am in a hurry and don't have time to make a fresh one.
I have tried insulated cups but somehow I always imagine they make the tea tast funny.
So when I read about the burning cup designed by ryan j I realised my trobles could soon be over.
He explains the technical details saying -
Burning cup is a product which helps prevent a beverage from cooling down due to heat release to outside. The sodium acetate contained in the inside of this cup can keep the heat of beverage. This liquid solution breaks the balance of liquid state by even tiny impact and hardens it solid, and at this time generates heat momentarily.
This heat allows the temperature of the beverage in the cup to be kept for a period of time consistently, the heat contained in the beverage is delivered again to the outside sodium acetate, and makes the solid into liquid, so permanent use is practicable.
I don't understand the science bit, all I know is that the moment these cups go into proper production, I have to get my hands on one of these bad boys.
Thank you Ryan.
My cup and my caffeine problem salute you...
