Practical, but .... September 18, 2013


Cranford, NJ

I agree with the previous reviews about the benefits of a tea timer. This one is easy to use especially if you don't know how long to steep for a particular variety. Unfortunately, I would not recommend buying one since they are poorly made. The buttons fail quickly. I returned my first one after only 1 month of use. A second was sent quickly, but it too is failing in the same manner as the first.

Prevents over seeping January 19, 2013

I drink a lot of tea of many varieties. I often over seep and sometime under seep. Over gets bitter under tea tastes like bath water. This handy device eliminates this. Sooo... my tea quality is much improved.

It is so wonderful how much better the tea is when it is properly steeped! I really like this cute face on my refrigerator.
