Tastea

This is one of my student projects.

With Tastea, you finally know what the tea you’re about to buy will taste like. Tastea is designed to visually describe the taste as accurate and natural as possible: the same way as we taste it with our tongue. A generative design process maps the five main flavors a human can recognize (sweet, sour, bitter, salty & umami) and maps them to a virtual landscape according to the position of those specific tastebuds on our tongue.

Tastea comes in a laser processed wooden box with each containing five teabags for 2,5L water.
