Would you like to read all about our project in German? We've created a translation here.
We’ve noticed all this too, and we’ve had enough. That is why we created amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass - the ultimate tool for brewing delicious tea simply, easily and with an eco-friendly mindset.
We know you`ll love amapodo.
Your best cup of tea is finally here. And you deserve it.
It just works better.
Get creative. Let your imagination run free.
Sit back and relax with a full-flavoured cup of your favourite tea. amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass – which are transparent – will bring you into the tea infusion process.
Find out what makes your favourite hot (or cold) brew so delicious! There are plenty of ways to think outside the glass. Try fruit, herb and spice infusions, even combining them as you see fit. There is no end to all the possibilities.
Tea gifts are special for most of us, as we all seek to unwind and reenergize.
For your loved ones, friends and clients who treasure a good tea - amapodo offers tea gifts and gift sets for private occasions as well as promotional tea products and branded drinkware for unique corporate gifts. If you are a company owner and would like to place an order on a branded version in larger quantities, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tea time can really be any time of the day or year – a birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, wedding, Father's Day or Christmas – and everyone will love them – men, women, mother, daughter, girl, boy, boyfriend, partner or girlfriend.
We are a small creative team of people who are just wild about tea. We have a good sense for functional simple design and we know that drinking a variety of teas and other fluids is just what you need to stay healthy every day of your life.
Since we started work on amapodo in 2015, we have faced a lot of challenges, developing twenty different home and office tea systems.
All our products have a few things in common:
- They enable delicious and healthy tea drinking.
- They are easy to use and highly functional.
- They are handcrafted and thus unique.
- They are made from natural, food safe materials.
- They are eco-friendly and save you money.
Our Passion for Tea
Fine tea is complicated. We all know that! Unless you are in touch with the right people, you may struggle to figure out where and how to start. There are many tea systems, styles, techniques, guides and gadgets available. All you want to do is drink! This is where we come into the picture.
amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass are simple, functional and unique, enabling you to experience the full range of everything good tea has to offer. Most important – they’ll get you drinking a good cuppa tea without any waiting. The Teapot and the Tea Glass put complex tea brewing strategies in your hands – without any of the research or practice you would need to do otherwise.
Of course, there’s no single “best” theine system out there. We have drawn on ample experience in order to develop our amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass, though. We are confident our Teapot and Tea Glass is just what you need to move past all the complexities of tea and just start drinking!
We are incredibly proud to share our new creation amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass with you folks and we value all your attention, support and passion as we move forward with our launch! :-)
The journey for developing amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass was a process driven by our love and addiction for tea. And, of course, it was spurred on by tea, likewise.
We had a rather clear vision: Bring to life an amazingly simply, functioning and healthy brewing system for tea we`d be proud of. We envisioned to develop a theine system that we ourselves would use day in day out and would recommend to our family and friends, too.
Follow-up our journey with amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass.
In the process we travelled Asia over months - the country from which the more than 1000-year-old tradition originates and is highly honoured and cultivated.
In the course we developed relationships with traditional manufacturers all the way down to the family that owns the production.
When selecting manufacturing partners, we deliberately opted for a small, family-run glassblowing manufacture. The manufacturing method is based on traditional and handmade craftsmanship, which makes every Teapot and every Tea Glass unique.
The amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass are checked for quality, packed and prepared for shipping – all by hand and next door in a social facility.
Our Kickstarter campaign will not only enable us to produce amapodo Teapot and Tea Glass, but also help support a social project that enables and encourages people with disabilities to lead an integrated life in society.
For more than 3 years the joint effort from these people ensure us and our products a high level of quality control and at the same time provides a responsibility they are proud of.
We ourselves have already supported several projects here at Kickstarter and we know about the cost-intensive challenge of shipping all over the world.
We have spent a fair amount of time searching and comparing various distributors and shipping providers in recognition that there are no less cost intense and/or for Backer more convenient shipping options. Our top priority is to ensure that our products arrive at your place in top quality and within the scheduled time frame.
We therefore administer the entire dispatch under the following conditions:
- Dispatch via DHL Parcel International for fast, secure and online trackable shipping (specific costs will be available to you once you have chosen your reward and set the country to which it will be delivered to)
- The chosen dispatch provider/method includes CIF – a Cost, Insurance and Freight shipping agreement, which means that insurance, liability and other costs associated with successful transit up until the goods are covered by the backer.
- VAT, GST and/or other applicable country (import-) taxes that specific countries and/or governments may impose, must be paid by the backer (out of experience costs framework can range from 0% to 20% for US and EU countries, to as much as 200% for certain South American countries).
- Shipments that fail due to an inaccurately provided address (including failure to update an old address) will have additional costs for reshipping.
- Due to various reward sizes, we cannot ship to PO Boxes in any country.
- Estimated Delivery: We will provide you with updates on shipping dates and estimated arrivals once production is complete
Global shipping is challenging for both sides – for everyone involved.
We, therefore, try to keep all foreseeable and unforeseeable costs as transparent as possible and inform you about it. If you are able, try to figure out your costs in advance. Also, unpredictable delays in shipping that are much out of our control and they can always occur.
Risks and challenges
We have tested everything, checked the manufacturers thoroughly and produced the first samples. Design and functionality are key to us and we can’t wait to kick off production.
If you have any feedback, ideas, or suggestions, of course, we would be happy to hear them. We believe in our product and we are confident this campaign will be successful.
We have more ideas for all tea lovers with good taste, and we are looking forward to sharing them with you in the future!
Thank you so much for your countless support and participation and keep expectations high as to what we will come up with next!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
