The Fine T Gourmet Tea Machine. Forget about all that Japanese tea ceremony, Geishas and Madame Butterfly malarky, just get yourself one of these puppies and whack out a perfect cup of tea time after time after ‘two lumps vicar?’ time. Who needs the perfectly aligned symmetry of silk Kimono against rush matting, the poetry of movement and elements combining in a slow silent dance of the senses at dusk when you’ve got chrome and glass technology to fall back on, eh? Pfaff! £148.50 ($349.00)
However, brewing the perfect cup of tea is almost a science which takes into account water quality, water temperature and infusion times. Boiled water is not considered good for making tea as the boiling process removes oxygen, making the water stale. As a guide, the perfect water temperature for the finest green tea is 60º – 75ºC, approximately 80ºC for white tea and water heated to 95ºC is perfect for puerh and black teas. Your Fine T Machine eliminates any guesswork so you can enjoy a perfect cup of tea time after time.
