Loose leaf tea can be brewed in a number of ways, including a single serving tea strainer, or our best-selling Perfectea Maker.
Each tea type calls for a different brewing temperature - between 175° and 212°.(See chart at right)
For hot tea, use 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons (or 1 pearl). For iced tea, just double the amount. If you like your tea strong, add more. To dial down the strength, use a little less. (See chart at right)
Like water temperature, steep time varies depending on the tea. The sweet spot is between 2.5 and 5 minutes.(See chart at right)
Just push a button ;)
The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker controls water temperature and steep time automatically, makes up to 50oz, and keeps it warm for up to an hour.
