1 Tasting Note
This is a mostly good product with one major flaw: For low-temperature steeps (greens, primarily) the unit’s auto shut-off function kicks in before the target temperature is reached. At which point you can only turn it back on and select your preset all over again.
I contacted David’s Tea about this and ended up with a shoulder-shrugging recommendation to “wait a few minutes” between my water boiling and activating the thermometer.
Not only does this make clear that they didn’t consider this possibility when designing it, it also defeats a lot of the product’s purpose—I bought this so I could boil my water and then forget about it until the thermometer beeped, NOT so I could boil my water and then count the minutes and then guess whether or not I waited long enough for my water to get close enough to the target temperature to accommodate the un-changeable auto shut-off time.
