How to Choose a Great Tea Brewing Machine

Make the perfect cup of tea with a dedicated tea brewing machine

Most people think they don’t need any kind of tea brewing machine as they can just boil some water and steep the tea leaves and their done.  The fact is they couldn’t be more wrong and boiling water is way too hot to properly make tea.  A dedicated tea brewing machine allows you to brew the tea leaves at the right temperature for the proper amount of time to make the perfect cup of tea every time.

Lets look at the process of properly making tea and how a tea brewing machine can help

First off, and this almost goes without saying, you need quality tea leaves to make a great cup of tea.  Invest in some great tea leaves from a quality merchant.  You’ll be rewarded for this. As a general rule you need to use one teaspoon of tea for each cup of tea, for more ‘fluffy’ leaves you may need to use two (read the directions to make sure) Heat fresh clean water to 180 degrees, boiling water is way hotter than this so do not use boiling water.  A tea brewing machine will automatically bring the water to the proper temperature for you, no guessing. You’ll want to steep the leaves in the water for 3 to 7 minutes; the exact time depends on the type of tea you’re using.

  • For light or Oolong tea 3 minutes
  • Black tea should be steeped for 5 minutes
  • Dark Oolong and white tea should go for 7 minutes

A good quality tea machine will of course time this for you as well as maintain the proper temperature.

A tea brewing machine practically guarantees a perfect cup of tea every time

Once the tea has steeped for the proper amount of time it’s time to pour a cup and enjoy. If you, or somebody you know is a big tea fan a tea brewing machine is not only a great gift but a great investment too since it makes no sense to buy quality tea leaves only to brew them incorrectly. I’ve linked below the best tea brewing machine available; it’s from Adagio, who, by the way, also have some fantastic tea leaves available too. (It’s pictured up top) Adagio Teas
