I’m not really a tea drinker myself, but when I do indulge in a cup or two I usually just throw in a tea bag and use hot water straight from the kettle. However, if you are serious about tea drinking, you probably want to check this “Tesera Teemachine” designed by Tobias Gehring who turns making a cup of tea into a rather beautiful and precise art.
This minimalist automated machine serves the perfect cup by controlling the brewing time, water temperature and the amount of tea depending on the blend used. Aside from the super-cool functions, it looks really sleek and modern too. [source]
