In the course of his research into traditions surrounding tea, Mingshuo Zhang discovered that the way it is often prepared and consumed in the West decreases its taste and aroma. Apparently, warming the cup in advance and keeping it warm is an important factor in maximising flavour. These findings led him to design his Slow tea set for one. It incorporates cup-warming into the tea-making process, which is the step that most people skip when making their daily brew.
