1.) It suggests "1 slightly heaped teaspoon of tea per cup" (or 1.75 grams), but the industry standard is actually 2.25 grams per 6 ounces of water.
2.) The settings for the 18 types of tea are abbreviated and I can't figure out some of them.
3.) Amazon claims it "can be custom programmed for creative tea concoctions", but it says nothing about that function in the directions.
... I called the company that makes this and it CAN NOT "be custom programmed for creative tea concoctions", which unfortunately is the main reason I bought it.
-you can't add your own tea types or steeping times/temps.. you have to use theirs. and their tea names are all really wacky (ex: darjeeling green is "DAJEL", pu-erh is "PUEHT".. etc)
other than those 2 things, it works pretty well and has enough options that you're sure to find the right settings for your taste. I use mine and like it, but I really hope they come out with an updated version that fixes those flaws
after about 4 months of use (once a day almost everyday) the display all of a sudden became scrambled and illegible. it still worked fine.. I could tell the timer was counting down and the tea types were switching, but I just couldn't read what it said. not sure if the constant humidity finally shorted something out or what, but it had to be replaced. I shopped around for a similar product, but this is pretty much it folks! there aren't really any other tea timers/thermometers that have this many options. despite it's shortcomings, I do definitely like this product.
I'm buying a second one because I dropped mine in a pot of boiling water and bricked it.

I bought this to check temperature of tea water. My problems with it are 1) it's complicated, you have to choose a tea type, you can't just set a temp you want and then let it go. Read morePublished on March 9, 2013 by Tippy
