Believe it or not, brewing a cup of tea isn’t as simple as coffee.  That isn’t to say coffee is a straight shoot, but often people over look the complexity of making a cup of tea.  This includes water temperature, brewing times, otherwise known as steeping and perhaps even some agitation to achieve max infusion.

The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker takes out all the guess work of brewing tea.  It’s fully programmable, which means that you can not only set a brew time for when you awake from your daily slumber, but choose the type of tea (Black, Green, White, and Oolong) eliminating the possibility of over brewed tea or water that scolds the tea leaves and ruins its subtle flavor.   But what makes the One-Touch Tea Maker truly unique is its motorized tea baskets that moves up and down.  This allows the one touch system to both agitate the tea while brewing for maximum infusions and remove the tea from water, which can lead to over brewing and result in a bitter tea.

Amazon sells the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker for $249.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
