With the Tea-Square Personal Craft Tea and Coffee Brewer you can brew incredible teas at home without all the hassle of monitoring every step. The Tea-Square heats up to four cups of water to a temperature that allows for optimal flavor extraction. The tea is brewed in a glass and stainless steel brew chamber which ensures that there are no off-flavors in your tea. As the tea steeps in the brew chamber, you can relax. No need to worry about brew times – the Tea-Square does everything for you. With its three brew settings, you have control over the duration of the brew cycle so that you can brew any variety of tea – white, green, oolong and black. Plus, the Tea-Square includes a fourth setting – refresh – which hydrates and rinses your tea prior to brewing. Once the tea is finished brewing, it passes through the extra-fine stainless steel strainer which traps even the smallest tea particles, giving you a clear, smooth brew. The Gourmia Tea-Square also includes safety features which prevent the unit from operating unless the carafe is in place.

Out of the box, I wasn't sure about it, as the cord looked damaged at first. It just happened to have some white stuff on it that flaked off. The cord is also very short, even for an appliance like this. The box has suction cups to keep the unit in place. This works very well on my glass desk, but I can also see this being a pain if you constantly have to pick the box up to refill it in the sink. For mine, I just use keep a jug of spring water nearby for easy filling. There is a slight rattling sound at times when the carafe is in place when I am working at my desk, but it is not a big deal. Both the top part where the hot water/tea gets filtered and the carafe are glass. The filter is stainless steel. The mesh is very fine, making it wonderful for honeybush and rooibos teas. I actually wish the Breville would update their strainer with finer holes.
My first little pot of tea was okay but had a funny taste. I attributed this to the machine being new, but it turned out that the tea itself was the culprit. I brewed a delicate green tea afterward which tasted fine. There is no "keep warm" function on this unit, which is forgivable in my option since it only makes a small amount of tea. It brews about 8 ounces (250ml) at a time. Because it only does one cup at a time, I have to run it twice to get the desired amount. This is something that could be improved, but pressing the button twice is not that much of an effort. The water heats up very quickly and tea is ready in no time.
The settings are light, medium, and dark. I would have preferred the traditional herbal, black, green, etc settings, but the manual that comes with the Gourmia GTC8000B is very helpful in guiding to which setting is correct for your favorite type of tea. Making a small pot of tea is easy. Once the unit is filled with water, just choose your tea to go into the strainer, then press Refresh. Discard that liquid and put the carafe back. From there, choose your preferred setting. You can steep some types of tea a few times. You can also use tagless bagged tea for this machine, but loose tea is more ideal. I do agree with the other reviewer that black tea is tricky and often comes out bitter. I would use less and only then use the light setting. The unit has a little button to ensure that the carafe is in place. You could probably use your own cup to fill with tea, as long as it wasn't too tall and you sat it on the little button.
Although everything needs to be hand washed, clean up is still very easy. The box itself can be wiped down with a damp cloth. The water bin needs to be descaled from time to time.
I really like this tea maker more than I thought I would. For the price, it could use some improvements, but overall the unit is fast, functional, and easy to use.
