Tea is a matter of taste, and not all tea is made the same way. As any tea lover will tell you, the secret to having that perfect cup of tea is to know the right method of tea brewing, and that requires the right equipment. Cuisinart has introduced a new programmable tea steeper that lets mom brew the perfect cup of Tea.
If mom is an avid tea drinker like I am, she will love “The PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper & Kettle,” as it has all the features one wants in a tea steeper and kettle.
The PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper & Kettle has six preset temperatures (for delicate, green, white, oolong, herbal and black loose leaf teas. You can also use bag tea, as well as your favorite spices, fruits and/or herbs to create your own blend, so you are not just limited to loose leaf tea.
To use the tea steeper function simply fill the stainless steel tea infuser with your tea of choice and fill the kettle with 1 lite of fresh water. Turn the device on and set the water to the required temperature.
- Tea/Temperature Options:
- Delicate (160°F)
- Green (175°F)
- White (185°F)
- Oolong (190°F)
- Herbal (200°F)
- Black (Boil – 212°F)
We found that it rapidly heats the water to the desired heat. The kettle beeps when water is at correct temperature.
When desire temp is reached and the machine beeps, lower the stepper (with a twist of the dial) and program the steeping time. The preset countdown timer can be adjusted to increase or decrease steeping time according to taste. Once that time is reached and the machine beeps, bring the steeper back up and pour your cup of tea.
I like that once your tea steeps that it automatically switches to the “keep warm” feature, keeping your tea at the selected temperature. It would be nice if the “keep warm” temperature went beyond 30 minutes, but that isn’t really a big deal.
The cordless glass kettle holds 1 liter for tea steeping; 1.2 liters as a water kettle and is perfect for homemade iced tea.
To heat up to 1.2 liters of water for hot chocolate, or instant oatmeal or your french press, simply remove the steeping assembly from your PerfecTemp Kettle, add water, cover with the kettle lid, and select your perfect temp!
The Cuisinart PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper & Kettle also comes with a recipe booklet for fun and delicious ideas!
The kettle/ steep tea combo also looks great with an added touch of style, making it visually appealing in the kitchen.
The Cuisinart TEA-100 PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper & Kettle is so versatile, easy and adjustable that it makes the perfect gift for her this Mother’s Day or the perfect gift wedding gift that the bride and groom will love.
