the Tea Maker

The new Breville Tea Maker is a revolutionary tea experience. The fully automated tea basket moves down, then up, gently agitating the leaves to precisely infuse your tea. Push the basket button and watch the basket cycle in and out of immersion. Seeing is believing.

Different tea varietals such as Black, Green, White, and Oolong require exact water temperatures and controlled brew times to allow their unique flavors and aromas to develop during brewing. The Tea Maker eliminates the guesswork so you can enjoy a perfect cup of tea, every time.

Fully programmable for all types of tea, water temperatures, and steep times. The moving tea basket allows water to circulate freely around the individual tea leaves for maximum infusion. Set the timer and wake up to the aroma of your favorite brew. The German-made Schott glass kettle is durable and stain resistant.

Relaxation - from start to finish.

The best!

"This was so worth the money! It's beautiful very well built "...I just love it I love looking at it even! Makes wonderful tea."

"I LOVE LOVE LOVE my tea maker. Found out I was diabetic. Drinking a black tea with cinnamon and orange peel. It is helping my diabeties along with lowering my bloodpressure. I never would have kept making the loose leaf tea, but because of the ease with the teapot I relax with my tea every evening. Breville makes superior quality products. I own the smart grill, wok pro, deep fryer, boss blender, pro sous food processor, bread machine, smart convection toaster oven. Buy one and youll become addicted. I want the smart microwave next."

Simply the BEST!

"There absolutely is not a better product on the Market for brewing tea. The Breville One Touch Tea Maker is the BEST. I have had my Tea Maker for three years now and use it every day. I have never had any regrets spending the money on this product. I have a friend who has been looking for a Tea Brewing system and she has been looking at mine. However, she does not want to spend the money for the Breville. I have been searching online to help her find one at a lower price that does what the Breville does. There simply is NOT a better product on the market. There are some that make an attempt to copy it but they do not match it. This is simply a Quality Product."

I am looking forward to experimenting with fresh fruits, dried herbs, etc.
I highly recommend the Breville Tea Maker, it's the bomb!!!"

Brew Oolong and Pu-Erh effortlessly

"This tea maker is awesome for people who drink teas like Oolong or Pu-Erh that require precise brewing temperatures and steeping times to bring out their subtle flavors. While traditional brewing methods may enhance the tea drinking experience, it is not always convenient to take those extra steps, and I always seem to get distracted waiting for my tea to brew and leave it in too long. Now I can enjoy my favorite teas brewed correctly -- no muss, no fuss!

Some feature requests that would make this tea maker go from awesome to mind-blowing...
1. Would be nice for the base to display the temperature of the water/tea after it has heated/brewed. It would be nice to know when the tea has cooled to a drinkable temperature (when brewing tea), and some teas are enhanced by bringing the water to a boil and then letting the water cool to the correct brewing temperature (when heating water).

2. Which brings me to the request for a brewing cycle with the ability to bring water to a boil, then wait and cool to the correct brewing temperature, and then steep for the specific time.

3. Finally, would LOVE a smaller model. I typically don't need to brew more than one or two cups at a time, and so I'm wasting tea sometimes since for this tea maker at a minimum I need to brew at least 2 cups."

"Recently Purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond.

Never really have been a tea drinker probably because it's always seemed to be such a tedious effort. I can say however I have always enjoyed a great cup of tea when somebody else has prepared.

It's only been three days since we purchased this incredible product but I can tell you I'm having a blast enjoying all the flavors and benefits that loose leaf tea brings to the party.

As far as workmanship and ingenuity this product far exceeds what I expected even at the price. I can tell you that' I'm not a very patient person, so when I find this product incredibly easy to use, you probably should believe me.

I look forward to many years of drinking tea with my wife .... morning, noon and night.

Thanks Breville"

Amazing Teamaker!

"I have always loved tea, but never have the time or patience for all that temperature taking, steep times, etc that you need to do, so settled for making tea with the Keurig. My fantastic husband surprised me with this Breville Teamaker after I saw it in Teavana; I can honestly say it's the BEST thing out there for busy people on the go who love tea from tea leaves, but don't have the time!! The directions are clear and simple, and the tea comes out perfect every time! I love the auto start feature so I can wake to perfectly brewed tea,ahhh, which is kept warm for me. too -- up to an hour! I love that I can set the machine for the tea I'm making with the touch of a button, or customize the settings, and have the right water temp and time EVERY time! It was worth the price due to having excellent tea every time, without the fuss, aggravation and wasted time needed the old way! Thank you Breville!"

Love it!

"I've had my teamaker for almost 2 years now and I use it almost every day. I've always been a tea drinker, but found the fuss of brewing black and green teas not worth the time. I always tend to over steep them, making the tea bitter and undrinkable.

My favorite feature is the Auto-Start function. It's been wonderful to sip on hot tea during a chilly, morning commute. I do wish there was some sort of battery back up in the tea maker because there have been a few times where the power flickered off for a second over night, just enough where I have to reset every clock in the house. And this causes the clock in the tea maker to reset, thus when I wake up in the morning, I'm left with just a pot of cold water.

I also wish I could put the jug in the dishwasher for cleaning because I do get tannins building up over time. But I have found that scrubbing the inside with one of the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers works pretty well to remove the tannin build up."
