Relaxation – From Start To Finish
The fully automated tea basket moves down, then up, gently agitating the leaves to precisely infuse your tea. Push the basket button and watch the basket cycle in and out of immersion. Seeing is believing.
Different tea varietals such as Black, Green, White, and Oolong require exact water temperatures and controlled brew times to allow their unique flavors and aromas to develop during brewing. The Tea Maker eliminates the guesswork so you can enjoy a perfect cup of tea, every time.
Fully programmable for all types of tea, water temperatures, and steep times. The moving tea basket allows water to circulate freely around the individual tea leaves for maximum infusion. Set the timer and wake up to the aroma of your favorite brew. The German-made Schott glass kettle is durable and stain resistant.

This appliance tries to take the art out of tea making. I mean that in a good way. You tell it "tea, black, medium", pour in the water and put in the tea leaves, and it does the rest. (If you're fancy, you can say "180 degrees, 3:30 minutes" instead.) It heats the water, drops the tea basket into it, leaves it there for the allotted time, pulls it out again, and beeps. You pour the tea. It can keep what's left warm for you.
It works surprisingly well, actually. Even delicate green teas come out flavorful and fresh. Black teas are not over-steeped (unless you ask for that, of course). You can make a single mug (aka two tea cups) just fine - even though only the bottom of the basket is in the water, infusion still works well. Or you can make a dozen cups; there's a mode that keeps moving the basket up and down in the water to ensure maximum contact.
To me, the best feature of this device is also, perhaps, controversial. It automates the tea making process; you can set it up, walk away, and when it beeps, your tea is ready to enjoy. It takes the ceremony out of the tea-making. Without the lifting-the-basket-when-it-is-time feature, you pretty much have to stand there and watch the tea brew. A minute of contemplation and reflection, all wiped out by technology. I guess that's progress...
Of course nothing is perfect. The carafe itself cleans up easily, but the spent tea leaves will cling tenaciously to the inside of the metal basket, requiring vigorous scrubbing with a suitable kitchen brush to get them out. That's mildly annoying. Perhaps Breville should design a custom-shaped brush to go with this basket. (Perhaps someone else should?) Of course, you can let the tea dry in its basket and then it'll drop right out, but that would take hours.
Five stars for the quality of the tea, the design, and the general convenience. Minus one star for the annoyance of cleaning up the tea basket afterwards. A very good device. Recommended even for picky tea drinkers.
We don't drink coffee, tea is what gets us going and sometimes I don't have the time to fill the kettle, measure out the leaves, check the water temp (yeah, I am THAT person), then brew it. I know thats like 10 mins, yeah sometimes I don't have 10 minutes so I leave sad and cranky. With this I load it the night before, I set the Auto Start and my water temperature and my brew time and go to bed. When I wake up and have 16 ounces (the minimum volume of liquid required to use) of leaf elixer, a quick rinse of the pot and I'm out the door. The world has color and nothing is terrible.
You can also use it as a kettle, so it doesn't add to my counter just replaces.
Comes with preset brewing suggestions. Which are fine. It also has a plastic measuring spoon (teaspoon size)
Allows for custom brew times (up to 10 mins) and brew temperatures (up to 212° F).
Auto start option allows you to have it automatically brew your tea at a specific time (you can also use custom brew time and temp here).
Has a keep warm feature that will keep the tea warm for up to an hour.
The basket comes out and is easy to fill and put back in. A magnet makes sure it's lined up right. It can also be lowered or raise if needed.
The only thing I don't like is the pot isn't dishwasher safe. The bottom of it can't get wet, they tell you that many times. I just rinse it out with hot water and leave it upside down to dry but really not a deal breaker.
If you've been on the fence jump off. Get it. If you like tea as much as some people like coffee just get it. You'll be happy.
Update October 2016: After six months of use, it's a brick. The basket light flashes endlessly, it won't heat water or do anything else. Of course, it's one month out of warranty. I'm not optimistic after speaking with Breville about the problem, we'll see. The product may be an expensive mistake. Looking at online at reviews, this is not an uncommon problem. I'll post further updates on what's next.
Update: November 2016, Breville replaced my Tea Maker by mail at no charge. I've now raised my stars for the product to three. I really like it a lot. I'm very pleased they replaced it and even paid the shipping for me to send the old one back. I'm just nervous it will fail again. In the meantime, happy tea making!
