"The younger a tea leaf is harvested, the lower the temperature that bitter tannins are released."
So like most things, the right time and temperature are critical for a great cuppa. So as well as being a kettle, this product makes tea perfectly and automatically. You can even programme it to start before you wake up and watching the basket move up and down is just brilliant!
Whether you prefer green, white, oolong, herbal or black tea this 'kettle' knows the precise temperature for it. You can also control the strength of the tea (from mild to strong). Once the water has reached the optimal temperature, the stainless steel tea basket silently lowers itself into the water for auto seeping. The automatic lifting and lowering of the basket allows the tea leaves to circulate for maximum infusion. Once complete, the chime sounds to let you know your tea is ready to enjoy. But just in case you're not ready, there's a 60 minute 'keep warm' button.
Heston's Tip: When it comes to brewing, the less oxidised teas like green and white teas release their tannins at a lower temperature. If you brew too hot, the bitter flavours over power the tea. Conversely, if you brew too cold you don’t release enough flavour from the leaf. The right balance is all about the right temperature.
For the perfectly balanced brew, different teas need to be steeped at different temperatures and for different times. So how do you get it right?
This revolutionary kettle has a motorised basket that automatically lowers tea leaves into and out of the water at precisely the right time. It has fifteen pre-programmed settings, plus fully variable temperature and custom controls. It even has a programmable start feature so your tea will be ready for you when you wake up. Detach the basket and it's a variable temperature, glass kettle.
The fully automatic basket lowers the tea leaves into water once the pre-selected temperature is achieved. It then raises the tea leaves out of the water once optimum steeping time is reached. Perfect tea all at the press of a button.
Different teas brew best at different temperatures--you can choose from variable temperature settings. The kettle automatically turns off and also has a keep warm feature.
LCD screen allows you to program temperature and a start time.
The kettle senses pressure and turns off once boiled or when there is no water in the kettle.

Excellent and very flexible kettle and tea maker for all types of tea from English Breakfast thru to asian green and other varieties..Published 4 days ago by Allan McDonagh
Similar shape and size to a kettle, though the base is a bit larger because of the controls. Can also be used as a standard kettle, which is a plus point. Read morePublished 6 days ago by CdL Creative
(There are a lot of Fat Duck fans downvoting legitimate observation here, so you can expect them to make this one look thoroughly inappropriate as well. Read morePublished 1 month ago by HP Sauce
The tea is fine, but the quality of the materials is very poor. The bottom metal is all rusty giving an impresion of cheap in less than 30 days of use. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Laur
Very happy with this product. It really does make a perfect cup of tea and how lovely to wake up to a freshly brewed pot of tea. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Frances Croton
Love this Tea Pot/kettle, already have the variable temperature kettle as it was impossible to find a tea maker that would use the right temperature and time (and be reliable!). Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mr. P. E. Woodward
