If you want to be ritzy AF then I can recommend the Breville One-Touch. I have had it for ~3 years now and it's doing great but (full disclaimer) I usually just use it for water boiling for my morning coffee.
If you are looking for the "perfect tea kettle" and do not have a budget, the Brewville Tea Maker is kinda awesome. I got it due to having a clock where I can schedule my tea to be done brewing at 7:30am and I can just grab and go.
I don't know an awful lot about the ikettle, but I can tell you that my Breville 1 touch has served me well for the years I have had it.
Take a look on amazon, hopefully it's not out of your price range. [link]
This is what I got the wife for her birthday. It is a bit pricey at $250 but the reviews are great. It has customizable temperature and steep times. Watch some YouTube videos it is really neat how it works.
I have this one. Well not the same because I live in Germany and they re-branded that thing here, but nonetheless this thing is awesome. It's easy to clean if you are wondering.
You can set temperature AND brew time. And if you are feeling fancy set it as your alarm clock. Waking up to perfect tea :3
I understand that this thing is overkill for a lot of things but if you are already planing to spend $200 why not spend $240 for a tested/reviewed product.
My boyfriend bought this for me: [link]
I love loose leaf but I'm always running around. I didn't think I would benefit from a cast iron kettle or anything because I couldn't see myself devoting the time for it. So this has a programmable timer and a bunch of other really cool features. Every cup tastes amazing and it's super easy to take care of.
Breville makes a good electric glass one I've been eyeing. It's expensive though.
So I went over to a neighbor's for tea and she had the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker...and the teas she brewed came out exceptional.
I was wondering if people feel that I should invest in this particular piece, or instead go for the slightly cheaper Breville BKE820XL, which also has tea-specific temperature controls.
Either would be a massive upgrade from what I'm currently using and wonder if I need the timing and flavor profile-specific settings if I use an old-fashioned timer since I'd be baby-sitting the tea.
Thoughts? Thanks everyone! ♥ May your day be filled with the perfect-temperature cup!
Look up the Breville one touch tea maker: [link] I got it for Christmas and it is truly amazing.
Of course, this Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is what I really want someday...
You can find that kind of tea kettle or that or this machine (sorry, I did not find it in English). Or course, you got also k-cup ou Tassismo cup, but the taste will never beat a real loose leaf tea.
In case anyone is looking to buy something like this, there is also this one, which is an amazing appliance =D
Edit: So maybe that wasn't the Breville equivalent, this one was.
And apparently, Cuisinart has a tea maker equivalent to my first link.
The Breville one touch? I have it and I fucking swear by it.
Obviously it parallels the coffee world: one can boil water and use a single cup drip or french press, or one can get an automatic coffee maker with clock and timer. Its not to say that doing it manually is difficult, just that automatic can be nice.
And forkyfork is right that automatic tea makers are a niche, so they lack variety, competition, and large scale production discounts.
That's horrible D: I have a dedicated tea machine.
Get one of the Breville variable temperature ones (ideally the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker ) we take ours with us when we do any driving vacations longer than a day or two.
My only complaint about it is if something breaks (specifically the glass kettle portion) you can't buy that separately but have to buy the whole thing again, fortunately that's only happened once and involved someone dropping a heavy plate on it.
Breville tea maker. It has a little basket that goes up and down on a magnetic elevator.
Edit: Looking again it might not be a breville.
