Imbune's Magnetic Tea Infusing Vessel is a new kind of tea travel mug that simplifies the brewing process by harnessing the power of magnets. For those who prefer loose leaf tea, but who want to avoid the mess, Imbune's container allows you to effortlessly brew your favorite tea at home or on the go.

The ingenious design of this tea travel mug lies in the lid, which contains a neodymium magnetic ring. The embedded magnet attracts the stainless steel filter holding the tea leaves, thus creating a leak-proof seal. With the filter magnetically affixed to the lid, the user simply flips the container upside down to begin the steeping process. Made from sustainable bamboo and shatter-resistant borosilicate glass, Imbune's new tea travel mug is designed for maximum durability.

The company has currently completed a small scale production run and are now running a Kickstarter campaign to bring the product to market.
