The Tea Maker: with Variable Brew Temperature, Time and Strength for Different Teas
"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.
The Kettle That Makes Tea, Perfectly

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.

Perfect kettle. Perfect tea.
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.

For instance, just take the tea basket on this thing, it is as if they etched it out of a solid block of Aluminium, no seams visible, doesn't creak when pressed. To top that, how do youattach it to the stainless steel pole it somehow magically descends and ascends from? Magnets! That is such an elegant and practical idea. They used it in their smart grinder ( love that too!) And it works so well in this one
It's almost as of Jonathan Ive is designing these things... Aluminum, magnetic, beautiful and practical
Then you have the auto start function that pulls our the basket when the brew is done and even keeps it warm for uptp an hour, I love it!
There one touch convenience to select black, white, green, oolong, herbal.. and if you need more customization, they have an option for that too.
The tea ? It is good, not " life changing"... Did you really expect that? But the convenience is fantastic!
My only gripe is that the water measurement display is in a weird and ultimately frustrating place but a bit of sugru soon fixed that.
Let me just say.. Once you get involved in tea like this it will change you whole life. Tea bag tea is awful.
If it was double the price I'd still get it.
