Cultural synergy

The world will soon become a melting pot of different cultures coming together with ideas or traditions bouncing and evolving off each other.  Good or bad, it is interesting to see that some of our habits are more similar than we know.

For example the amount of tea or coffee we drink in a cup in one go. 

Check out how this hand made Japanese tea cup for Ocha (green tea) is a perfect fit for a preset machine brewed shot of cappuccino.
