    My mom gave me the Breville One-Touch tea maker last year in November. We make herbal as well as black tea and I love that it does the right setting based on the kind of tea and allows you to modify if you want to change it up or steep for a longer period of time. It's been over 6 months that the tea maker is still running great! It does form a patina but that is to be expected and not a bad thing at all. I love love love this tea maker. You won't ever want any other one if you get this. It's amazing.

    A great product from Breville

      It's one of the best products for hot tea making. The Breville One Touch Tea maker is fully programmible for the selections of Black, Green, White, and Oolong, Tea temptures and steep times. The capacity is 51oz or 1.5L. I like how the basket automatically lowers down in to the water when it's time to make the tea of my choosen.

      The Breville One Touch Tea maker has a LCD screen so you can keep time of how long your tea has been making.

      I am looking forward to make many teas with this tea maker cause it's a great product for the tea drinker to have.

      Break down and buy one!

        If you drink tea regularly, you need to buy one of these Tea Makers! Since it's electronically controlled, your tea will be perfect every time. No scorched or over steeped tea.

        This device also brings a feature that coffee drinks have been enjoying for many years. Hot, fresh tea in the morning when using the brew later feature.

        Sure cleaning isn't the easiest, but I find it no more difficult than cleaning an electric kettle, and a Perfect Tea Maker.

        While it is pricey, I'd also recommend picking up a second basket and cover if you prefer to drink a variety of teas. This way you won't need to discard perfectly re-brew-able teas.

          There absolutely is not a better product on the Market for brewing tea. The Breville One Touch Tea Maker is the BEST. I have had my Tea Maker for three years now and use it every day. I have never had any regrets spending the money on this product. I have a friend who has been looking for a Tea Brewing system and she has been looking at mine. However, she does not want to spend the money for the Breville. I have been searching online to help her find one at a lower price that does what the Breville does. There simply is NOT a better product on the market. There are some that make an attempt to copy it but they do not match it. This is simply a Quality Product.

            It's as simple as this: If you like tea, this item is more than worth the price. You get what you pay for, which in this case is perfect tea every single time, even if you are a terrible brewer.

                If enjoy tea, save yourself time, aggravation and money (by poorly prepared tea) and buy Breville One-Touch Tea Maker for yourself now. I kept looking at this at Teavanna for so long, but the price made me pause. This was a huge mistake. I finally made the jump and bought this one touch tea maker… Wow, I never realized just how good and easy great tea was and what I had been missing! Now my tea tastes just like the samples at Teavanna do. (in many years of trying I never even came close)

                I drink between one to two jugs of tea every day. It is so VERY EASY and every pot is perfect every time. Why did I ever wait so long??

                My only complaint is that the pot is heavy and not the easiest to clean. By not being able to submerge, you really can only rinse it out. But the tea is so absolutely consistently perfect, you learn to work around this.

                Do yourself a favor and enjoy drinking your perfect tea and save your time and money and by the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker now.

                An Excellent Purchase

                Pros

                • Consistency
                • Convenient

                Cons

                • Customer Service
                • Price
                • Steep Basket To Coarse

                Best Uses

                  I used to put water on to boil on the stove. From time to time, I would walk away and forget about it and boil away most of a pot of water. Now, I fill the pitcher, add my tea, select the settings, and walk away, knowing that everything will be taken care of. I've been using it for 10 months, making on average 1-2 pitchers per day. Wishing there was a less coarse steep basket available, as I don't like finding tea leaves between my teeth. Overall, a great machine, but still a bit on the expensive side. I paid $200, but feel the perfect price point would be about $150. Breville customer service is a little terse in their responses; not a lot of openness to customer requests or inquiries - just quick, short, poorly worded (perhaps from off-shore) responses, that don't leave me feeling like they care too much.

                  We were going to wait to buy a tea pot at a later date but my previous pot died and I figured with as much as I drink tea and now the rest of my family we should probably upgrade, so I went ahead and splurged on this very nice tea pot which I can use to make multiple different teas with the hot water setting and when its just me the perfect infusion makes it, well, perfect. I am not disappointed by this product and the high expected performance that it is putting out. and it's so easy to use that I don't have to show my friends how to use it they can just start it if they want. my 7 year old can use it too :D

                      The Breville automatic tea maker changed my life. I spent a fortune on my espresso machine last year and I use it once a day only for my morning coffee. Since the day I bought the Breville tea maker, I've been using it daily, both morning and evening, with 2 or 3 brews of the same tea in the evening.
                      To the reviewer who said that the basket rusts - NO, IT DOES NOT! It's the natural stains from the tea. Just immerse the basket in lemon water for a few minutes and the rusty coloured stains will disappear. Same for the glass pot - it gets brown after a few uses but you can run a cleaning cycle (read the instructions) by putting some white vinegar or lemon juice in the pot along with water and your tea maker will shine like new.

                      Great tea maker-expensive but worth it

                      By Jamester

                      from Toledo, OH

                      About Me Health Conscious, Tea Enthusiast

                      Pros

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            This is very expensive but well worth the price.

                            I love the autotimer feature. I'm someone that likes to sleep until the last possible moment and with this feature I can just set it up before I go to bed and wake up to a nice cup of tea to take with me (the min. 2 cup makes the perfect travel mug size cup of tea). This feature alone will save me a lot since I won't have to go to the coffee house after I get to work for a morning coffee or latte.

                            The flavor is great. Best home brewed tea I have ever had. It's also nice that it automatically keeps the tea warm for an hour after (although not as warm as I like after about 15 minutes) and the display will tell how long the tea has been brewed and has a countdown timer while brewing and will show the water temperature while heating up. The custom brew time and temps are great features as well (although it only allows the temperature to be at 205 or 212 when I want to make tea that teavanna recommends a 208 setting for, but no problems with it set at 205). The teaspoon that comes with it is a nice accessory. The spoon, lid and basket are all dishwasher safe which is another plus.

                            Reasons I am giving it four instead of five stars:
                            1. You can't brew a single cup, min is 2 cups. That is fine in the morning since it makes a perfect travel cup size but at night sometimes I only want an 8 oz cup of tea and not 16.

                            2. The glass pot can't be submersed in water. You can only wipe the outside and it makes cleaning it a little bit of a pain. And be sure nothing happens to the pot, because it's my understanding if you break it or it cracks you can't buy a new pot, you have to buy a whole new machine (that is the biggest drawback for me).

                            3. The keep warm feature doesn't keep the tea very warm. If I get a second cup after more than 10 minutes or so, I have to throw the cup in the microwave for a few seconds. I wish it would keep it at the brew temperature.

                            4. You can't set the temp. at 208. My favorite teas have a recommended 208 temp. I use 205 with no issues, but seeing Teavana sells a lot of teas that call for a 208 temp it would be nice if this machine they sell has that setting.
