Teavana Perfectea Maker – Tea Made Easy

A while back I changed the way I was eating to try to improve my health and drop some weight. One of the things I realized I was doing was drinking a lot of water. At the same time, I happened to be reading a lot of articles about the health and weight loss benefits of green tea. This got me thinking- I’m drinking so much water every day, maybe I should try to make some of that water green tea.

I's Why's

  • Filter at the bottom eliminates the need to pour out the tea
  • Easily strains out tea leaves
  • Well-made with high quality materials

For some reason, I decided that I wanted loose tea and not tea bags. The closest place to my house was a Teavana store, so I went there. I found them to be very nice and helpful. They have tea for you to sample and all sorts of very cool accessories. I never knew there were so many different tools for making tea.

As I was looking around the store and checking out all the little steepers, tea cups, strainers, canisters and pitchers, I came across a gift box with some tea, a measuring spoon and something called a Perfectea maker. And this was just so cool.

So how does it work? First you get your water to the right temperature. While you’re doing that you put the correct amount of tea in the top of the Perfectea. The hinged lid is made of really strong, BPA-free polycarbonate. It will hold 16 ounces of water, which is more than enough to fill up my mug. It is also available in a 32-ounce size.

Now you’ve got your tea in the Perfectea maker and the water has been getting hot. Pour the water into the Perfectea maker through the same hinged lid on top. At this point, you let it steep for the recommended amount of time.

After the tea has steeped, lift the Perfectea up by the handle and set it down on top of your teacup or mug. When you do that you activate or open the bottom of the unit. It drains all of the tea into your teacup or mug, keeping all the tea leaves in the Perfectea maker.

Here is something I never even knew, but most of the green teas that I have been buying can be used three different times. So the second steeping is even easier because now the tea leaves are in there and all you have to do is add more water.

I love products that do a job and do it incredibly well; things that save you time and money.They make my life easier and they’re very affordable. This is one of those products.

The Perfectea runs about 23 right now but like I said, they have a nice little kit that comes with the measuring spoon. Check it out because the people at Teavana are really knowledgeable and they’ve got some great products.
