The Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker is a great alternative to a regular tea strainer. To use it, you simply place your tea lives directly in the tea maker, add hot water and leave it to steep. When it’s ready to pour, you place it on top of your cup and the patented drain mechanism will automatically start draining the tea into your cup while holding the tea leaves back in the tea maker. It’s super simple to use and also breaks apart into four pieces for nice and easy cleaning.

1) Leaf Free Tea: One of the big advantages the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker has over regular tea strainers is that it gives you leaf free tea. While most tea strainers do a pretty good job of keeping tea leaves out of your brew, even the best models usually let a few slip through. The patented drain mechanism that comes as part of the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker has a very effective filter which ensures that not even a single tea leaf makes its way into your tea cup.
2) Multi Strength Tea: As well as providing you with leaf free tea, the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker is also brilliant for brewing tea to the exact strength you desire. The clear casing allows you to see the tea change color and strength in real time. As soon as it gets to your preferred strength, you simply hold the tea maker over your cup and it will instantly dispense the perfect cup of tea.
3) Easy To Clean: Another great thing about the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker is that it’s very easy to clean. It can be broken down into four pieces and each piece requires just a quick rinse under hot water and then it’s ready to use again. If you’re not a fan of washing up, you’ll love how simple this cleaning process is.
No Cup Measurements: The main thing that lets the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker down is that there is no way to measure how much tea you are pouring into your cup. If you have a glass tea cup then you can see how much is going in and stop draining the tea when the cup gets full. However, if you are using a regular ceramic tea cup, there’s no way to see which means you have to keep stopping and checking how full your cup is to avoid overflows. While this is only a minor annoyance, it would have been much better if the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker could be set to automatically stop after pouring one cup of tea.
The Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker is a fantastic alternative to regular tea strainers. It makes a perfect cup of leaf free tea brewed to your desired strength and it’s also very easy to clean. The only flaw is that you can’t preset it to pour a specific amount of tea which isn’t a deal breaker but it is frustrating. However, if you can handle this flaw, the Teavana PerfecTea Tea Maker is definitely a worthwhile addition to your kitchen and brews a close to perfect cup of tea.
