great tea maker

"What can I say except excellent cup of tea.
Like most people always used tea bags but watched video and made perfect sense( correct temp / time for all types of tea and no hassle ).
No tannins / glue from tea bags etc - watch video.
Easy to clean and the added bonus of once made can keep at correct temp without stewing! If like me you like several cups in morning this is great feature.
Go for it if you like tea ( I don't have money to throw away so was a considered purchase )"

Great consistent tea

"simple to use and once you have experimented once or twice makes consistent tasting tea and keeps it warm!"

Perfect Tea!

"For the first time in many, many years of trying to brew the perfect cup of hot tea and the perfect glass of iced tea, this device does it...and does it properly, quickly and with minimal mess. Brilliant! Simply brilliant!"

Just wonderful

"I've built up rather an excessive tea collection over the last year or so, and although I was doing just about OK in getting the water temperature right (although adding cold water to boiling was not ideal), I'd then often spoil things by only remembering my brewing tea about 20mins later. Luckily a lot of my teas didn't come to harm so long as the starting temp was right, but it still got frustrating. So when I saw this on offer on Black Friday I had to have it, and it has been SO worth it.
My advice would be to always check the packet rather than rely entirely on the pre-set options, especially if you're drinking oolong which can have a wide range of recommended temperatures.
Also make sure you set aside some time when you first get it, as the first few times you WILL stand watching it!!!"

Best kettle I have had

"I bought this item just as a kettle for my loose teas but now use it for everything due to the function where you can change the time you brew and at what temperature. I now not only use it for loose tea but boil it for tea bags and coffee. Would never go back to an ordinary kettle

5 star rating "

Perfect tea every time

"Move over food processor - the Tea Maker is the best bit of kit in my kitchen!
Whether it's an everyday cuppa, a herbal infusion or something more exotic like lapsang souchong or oolong, you can guarantee the Tea Maker with its pre-set and customisable brew options will deliver a delicious cup of tea.
Beautifully engineered to the highest standards, it's a joy to use. The 'keep warm' function means the stewed second cup is a thing of the past. And it's so easy to tip out the used leaves and clean the basket the leaves sit in.
There will be no going back to teabags in this house."

OMG this is just brilliant

"I have owned this for a few weeks now and I forgot how wonderful loose tea tastes compared to tea bags. This machine is so brilliant, the tea never stews as the caddy raises itself at the correct time and it stays warm for up to an hour. Perfect, I use it all day long now."

Early Morning Cuppa

"Thanks Heston, I have really appreciated the Tea being ready when I wake. On the occasions that I'm awake first, it is so simple to press a couple of buttons and the tea is soon ready. When I have drifted back to sleep, the tea is still warm when I awake. So far my only disappointments are that the clock does not keep the right time and every couple of days I have to add a minute. Also the light given off by the button, lights up the whole room in the dark, this has been a really irritating point, as I have striven to achieve a totally dark room to sleep in. I have resorted to covering up the button with a plastic bottle top, currently I am experimenting with different types of tops before I move it out of the room to the landing. Just wish I could take it on holiday with me!"

Heath Robinson must-have gadget

"Wow...tea automatically delivered at the right temperature, at the right strength and at the right time. What's not to love? Cost is a tad prohibitive but when you look at the engineering to allow a tea caddy to lower and raise...and even do it repeatedly if so desired...that alone is going to give the wow factor response. Hot flavoursome tea with common tea types already pre-programmed for use. The manual is something else - a legal extravaganza of covering Sage's responsibility for any possible hurt or damage. The lawyers should feel proud of themselves...."
