Western student’s tea vessel a big hit on Kickstarter

Some readers may recall reading about Western Washington University students designing an interesting tea-brewing vessel that uses magnets to keep the tea leaves in place. Here’s a (link) to the story about the business, called Imbue.

I checked to see how their Kickstarter campaign. They were hoping to raise $20,000. As of 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29, more than $255,000 had been pledged by nearly 4,400 people. That is quite a feat. Earlier today I tried to contact one of the students, but hadn’t heard back yet. I’m guessing they are a bit busy (or in a state of shock) about all the support they’ve received.

Here’s a link to the Kickstarter campaign. According to the site, four days are left before the campaign ends.
