This is a tea cup with an Arduino thermometer that will help you brew the perfect cup of tea, both puting your teabag in at the right temperature to make sure that you don´t burn it, or burn your tongue with the guidance of three different light situations:

  • Red Light: The water is too warm, it will burn both your tea and your tongue!
  • Red and green light: Time to put your teabag in!
  • Green light blinking: The tea has the right temperature for drinking
