I thought first I'll review these, together, since they are a lot alike, I think. We have The Ingenuitea by Adagio Teas ( Which I have no teas by them! I must buy some soon! And recommendations?) and Teavana's Perfectea Maker thingy. Mom's is the Ingenuitea. I have an older model of the Perfeatea. I got it at GoodWill for 3 bucks. If you're not as lucky as me, it'll set you back about 20 bucks. And I think it's worth every penny.
The Two Brewers
The only difference I think between the two, it the Ingenuitea mesh comes out. You can either see it as a good thing, or a bad thing. I hate it. It also tea stains. But I like how all of it is see through, and the handle is pretty cool, with the grip and all.
What I like to do, is fill up the cup you are going to use with boiling water, (or regular, and you can just microwave the water to get it hot) add the tea to brewer, and then add the cup of water to the brewer, that was you have the right amount of tea :).
Here's some random pics while I was waiting for the tea to brew! :D
If that's not sexy, Iunno what is.
When you are done, you're tea leaves is right there. You can either steep again, or just throw it about. :).
I would buy one of these. They are so worth it. :)
What do you steep in?
