Mesmerizing Glass Chamber Teapot Brews Tea Before Your Eyes

Your tea-drinking experience is about to get a lot more mesmerizing! The upcoming Sorapot 2 is part teapot and part sculpture, and it aims to show you the magic that happens when preparing your beverage. Normally, you'd put your loose leaves in a pot, close it, and wait for them to brew. The Sorapot 2 has a glass chamber that changes all of that – it lets you see the tea leaves unfold right before your very eyes.

Using the teapot is easy. Simply unscrew the stainless-steel lock, unhinge it by the handle, place the leaves in the jar, and then close it. Finally, pour hot water through the spout, take a seat, and watch the hypnotic process of tea extracts combining with water. The teapot also works with teabags but that's decidedly less exciting.

The Sorapot 2 was created by industrial designer Joey Roth and is available for pre-order on his website. It's slated to begin shipping in October. With a current price tag of $285, it's certainly not cheap, but what other well-designed teapot makes brewing into an art form?
