Thought for Food, the Breville video series - featuring top chefs, culinary brilliance. Joshua Kaiser and the Tea Maker BTM800XL

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.

A new and wonderful experience

"I have never cared much at all for tea until I was introduced to Teavana. Wow. This Breville machine makes the whole process exacting and simple. Now I can brew delicious tea without a big hassle and fuss. I am also impressed with the quality of German engineering and the quality of the product. If you like tea, you need this machine. It is pricey, but worth it. It's sad that we can't make a quality product like this in the USA anymore, but thank goodness for the Germans. Nothing else compares."

"Walking into Teavana today was a delightful experience when I encountered this innovative Breville TeaMaker. There was no hesitation in purchasing once I saw what it would do. Returning home, I followed the instructions and boiled water to cleanse it; then I set about the task of making that perfect cup of tea, which took a fraction of the time it normally does.

I have been a tea aficionado for years, and this gadget is absolutely the best accoutrement for a perfect cup of tea. I look forward to trying the auto function for tomorrow's cup with the flavorful new teas provided by Teavana with purchase of the TeaMaker.

Thank you for such an amazing product!!!"

***** Product

"I have been an avid tea drinker all my life. I prefer loose teas and when I saw the Breville tea maker I was initially concerned about the price. Having used it now for several days, I am impressed with the user friendly interface, brew quality and convenience that it provides.

If you drink a variety of teas like me, you will enjoy using this product.

If you like consistent brew quality you will like this product.

If you like quality construction, an intuitive user interface and great design, you will like this product.

If you do not like the cost, well, you get what you pay for.

Thanks Breville

"I walked into Teavana and was buying tea and saw this pot.
Wasn’t sure with the price, so I waiting awhile to buy one.
What a waste of time it’s fantastic and the tea no matter what
kind is great. So spoiled that now I come home and sit down
to drink tea every day even at midnight. Thanks Breville for such a
great tea maker. Like the hot water option also and if you want
basket to sit in water or have basket go up and down.

Best Tea Kettle EVER!

"If you are an avid tea drinker, you will LOVE this tea kettle. It takes all the work out of making the perfect cup of tea. It is very easy to use and easy to clean. My one and only negative comment is that when I brew very fine loose leaf teas, they do end up in my cup. The basket has very small holes but not small enough for my fine loose leaf teas. Other than this, the kettle is perfect! "

"I purchased this Kettle from Teavana and was hooked on it at once!! Now my tea tastes GREAT not just better. I love how it automates the brewing process... so while I'm showering and getting ready for work ...I know I can look forward for few cups of my favorite tea ...MADE TO PERFECTION!!"

Perfect for a Tea-aholic

"This is a great tea kettle for a true tea lover. I wouldn't recommend this to a newbie in the tea world; it would be overwhelming (as tea in itself is!). This is a great product for an expert or well experienced tea drinker. Plus, with the expensive cost, I imagine a person who only drinks tea 'occasionally' wouldn't buy this.

I love the auto start function. It saves at least an hour for me in the morning. The function/feature that I really love is the ability to make a perfect cup so quickly. I do not have to wait a long time for the kettle to heat up on the stove, check the temperature, and stalk the tea strainer for brewing. I simply add the amount of tea I need and press the appropriate button. Awesome.

My only concern is the ability to replace parts if something happens. While I never anticipate anything breaking, you never know. I would hate to have spent so much on the product and the kettle break, only to find that I have to replace the entire machine. Still, aside from that little fear, I simply love this machine. Worth every penny!!"

Perfect cup every time!

"I used to work at Teavana and became obsessed with tea. When making looseleaf tea with their method it required extra steps and you could only make one cup at a time. This product makes it so easy! I can wake up in the morning and by the time I'm done washing my face, my tea is ready!"

Makes a perfect cup of tea

"I've ruined many a cup of tea by oversteeping after I get distracted. I love loose, organic tea and this device allows me to make a perfect cup each time. I especially love how I can auto-time it so I can have tea made when I get up in the morning.

I did run a cycle with white vinegar and 2 follow up with plain water before the 1st use and it's been great."

Best ever!

"LOVE IT!!! My husband purchased this tea maker for me as a gift just recently and I can not say enough great things about it. Being an avid lose leaf tea drinker this has been such a time saver. I usually make myself a thermos of tea every morning to bring to work with me so I can sip all day and this product has cut down my tea making time tremendously. This is by far one of the greatest gifts I have ever received.
