Product Description

The Tea Boy Penguin is a quality product from the house KUCHENPROFI. The Tea-Boy stands after the set time, the teabag from the cup. No matter how long it will take your tea - the time is set to one minute. Simply Tea-Boy with hinged tea bag positioned above the cup. Done! Height: about 22 centimeters. A great gift idea for small and large tea-lovers. Penguin Tea Timer gives you perfectly brewed tea every time! Built-in timer automatically lifts teabag out of the cup, so tea is brewed to your liking! Just hang the tea bag or tea ball on the beak, set timer and the beak lowers the bag into the hot water. When tea is ready, an alarm rings and the beak comes up, bringing the tea bag out. Timer can be set up to 20 minutes, can also be used as a regular timer. 8" H. Looks good on your countertop, too! Making tea, though easy to do, is also time consuming. Once you pour the hot water into the cup, you must patiently hover over it, waiting for the tea to steep. Well, the Penguin Tea Timer happily does the waiting for you.

I love coffee/he loves tea - but he often gets sidetracked and forgets to retrieve the bag before his tea is too strong and/or cold.

my wife and i discovered the importance of proper tea timing while visiting in germany. we discovered this same timer there, but did want to take space in our luggage to bring one home. however, when we found this one, we were overjoyed! it's easy to use and makes a huge difference in the quality of your tea. yes, it's a little excentric, but it's worth it!

One of the best gifts I've given him, ever. I love coffee/he loves tea - but he often gets sidetracked and forgets to retrieve the bag before his tea is too strong and/or cold. The "lift" and the timer's ringer solve the problem. The penguin raises the bag from the water and reminds him of his hot drink. Perfect tea and cute penguin on the counter.

I got this for my wife, who likes tea, but usually gets pulled away by the kids as soon as the tea bag hits the water. By the time she returns to it, the tea is over-steeped. So this is a handy solution.

Two small gripes/suggestions:
1) The bell. Not excessively loud, but kind of a jarring noise just to let you know that your tea is ready. My kids disliked it, so I ended up disassembling the penguin and performing a bell-otomy (the patient survived). I wish the bell were somehow optional.
2) The penguin design is cute, and I like it, but I can see where it's not for everyone. I would like to see a purely functional version that's not so cutesy. I'm sure the stainless-steel, Sub-Zero-fridge crowd would agree.

Overall, I recommend it.

SOOOOO cool! it's really simple, and its so cute! i also love how it has the container for loose leave tea, which really helps me! it's very small, and can fit on the counter well. it's very useful because i drink tea every morning, and plus i can get my breakfast ready while im steeping my tea. it is also really simple, all you do is set the timer and drink!

I bought this for my fiance who loves penguins because we both love tea. He couldn't have been more thrilled and has been happily making cup after cup of tea brewed to perfection!

Ok, yes, for a timer it is expensive and a little cheesy but dammit it's adorable! I got it for a few reasons actually, after looking over the net for a 'shaped' timer of some sort specifically for my tea.

1) On the actual timer itself all the lines are BIG and CLEARLY marked- this helps as in the morning I don't care to wear my glasses. And I want my tea.
2) The numbers are marked all the way down to 2 minutes, and as I drink a lot of green tea this part of the little guy gets used a lot.
3) As does that beak! I really like the fact that it's actually fairly high so my taller cups have no problem with getting the tea bags lifted OUT of them.
4) The bell is LOUD- scares my cats every time when it goes off- and well, it's amusing to see them running from a penguin.
5) ... we call him Pengu and he is our counter penguin.

If you can afford such a kitzy little item get it- he's also fairly durable. I've dropped it at least twice now and haven't even dented the felt hat.
