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.

My husband got me this along with other Breville products

"Not a coffee drinker~ have always loved tea~
The flavor of the loose leaf tea that this brings out is amazing!
I love being able to set it and it be ready first thing in the morning~
This Tea Maker is so easy to use too~
Here's to many mornings of waking up to the tea being ready at the same
time my husbands coffee is!

"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."

Absolutely the BEST!

"This product is absolutely the BEST! It is well worth the money!!! Makes perfect tea every time. I recently went on a retreat weekend and did not have my tea maker. I had to revert to making tea the old fashioned way, with hot water and letting it brew in a basket in my cup. It just wasn't the same. If you love tea, give yourself a treat and buy a Breville One Touch Tea Maker!! You will be glad you did! mmmmm....my tea is brewing now....mmmmm"

"Okay - so, most folks think: "...just boil some water, pour it over a tea bag for a couple of minutes, and you have tea..."

I do not like coffee - I have always been a tea drinker, but after trying tea that was made in the Breville, I realize I have been missing a lot. Not only does this sleek tea maker put on a show, (down goes the basket, up goes the basket) it brews whatever type of tea you want to perfection.

Yes, it is on the pricey side - but so are all these fancy coffee machines that people buy. If you truly love tea, treat yourself and invest in the tea maker.

I drink mostly white and green tea, and sometimes a hearty chai. It is nice to have a high quality product that brews these special-teas the correct way.

I raise my cup of jasmine white to Breville and say, THANK YOU!"

Perfect Brew Tea Maker

"I absolutely love this tea maker which can also be used to warm brewed tea and heat hot water to desired temperature. The pre-programmed time & temperate settings save you from having to insert a thermometer and stand by the pot while it brews. Just program your time & temp after adding tea leaves and the pot will gently sound when your tea is ready.
One thing I recommend is cleaning the pot with lemon juice or white vinegar to remove the tannins that stain up the pot. I do this daily and also purchased the revive organic descaling solution to keep my pot free from calcification deposits left from frequent use.
Breville produces quality appliances with attention to details that chefs and food connoisseurs seek out, which make creating and preparing our gourmet treasures a delight."

Best of the best! My favorite kitchen appliance!!!

"Best option for tea aficionados on the go!
Aficionado = You already buy the tea in leaves, by weight (Teavana, Heavenly Tea, etc) and prefer this instead of the mainstream teabags you buy a supermarkets.
If you don't want to waste time calculating, attending, or worrying about brewing times for each type of tea, then this is your product right here.

I have had this Tea Maker for about 2 years and can't be happier. Just now I was mixing my already brewed-3-times oolong with some fresh Youthberry white tea, and I thought: "I am so happy with this product, I have to share with others about it" My one tip: let the kettle ventilate after every brewing so your tea leaves that are left in the basket can dry without developing mold. You can accomplish this by simply leaving the lid half-way on top of the kettle.

I am a Breville Fan. I own the Breville Smart Oven, and one of the Breville Juicers. Also great machines, but the Tea Maker, is by far my favorite!

Worth every penny, you won't regret it. "

"I also bought my tea maker from Teavana. When I first started buying tea there, I too wanted to make the perfect cup of tea. But it became overwhelming! This tea brews at this temp for this amount of time and another tea at this and that. I discovered the perfect cup of tea would be impossible....until I bought the Breville tea kettle. Yes it was a little expensive but I was lucky. I bought it during a 25% off sale so I paid under $200! Can't wait to use it! I don't have to use it first to write a review...I know it's going to be...PERFECT!!!"

Outstanding Breville Service!

"I purchased a Tea Maker from Teavana on 01/12/13. Unfortunately for me, they discovered that they only had a floor model. Against my better judgement I agreed to take the floor model. I was so excited to get it home and set up. I followed the manufacturer's directions and the Tea Maker worked perfectly so I dumped the water and set the pot down to brew some real tea and the glass pot cracked - just like that! I honestly don't know what caused it or if was because it was a floor model but I was so disappointed.... The box stated not to return the unit to the retailer so first thing Monday morning I contacted Breville. Sandy assisted me & was surprised by my experience but assured me that she would do her best to help me. I was asked to send a photo of the tea pot and the Teavana receipt and later that day she called to inform me that they would be sending me a new unit once I returned the base of the one that I had just purchased. I mailed the base back with the prepaid mailing label that Breville sent to me on 01/16/13. To my delight I received the replacement unit on 01/21/13. The service was spectacular and I am loving my Tea Maker. Thank you Sandy and Breville!! "
