reviewed PerfecTea Maker by Teavana
37 tasting notes

I’ve had mine for about 6 months, and it does not leak, nor does it clog. I have had no trouble cleaning it, and it seems durable. It’s plastic, and does show smudging/fingerprints unless you clean it thoroughly with soap and water after use, and if you use the device with too small a cup you will have an overflow (I haven’t measured, but it holds more than a teacup… more like a travel mug), but those are my only complaints. I’ve tried it with finings (taken out of a tea bag) and with whole leaf tea, and either work very well — although the loose tea looks nicer when it is brewing. I have seen a similar device at both Distinctly Tea and at DAVIDsTEA in Canada, and I also saw a larger version at Teavana. This one is just perfect for my uses — a full container results in a nearly-full travel mug.

Update — Broke my PerfecTea the other day. I dropped it and one of the feet broke off. Tried to repair it with some dremel work and a spare piece of similar plastic I had lying around, but it only lasted one more day. Guess I will need to buy another one, or something similar! Will definitely buy another… and I’ll be more careful with it this time.

My perfect tea is on it’s last legs as well ..Lol !! I was thinking about getting the ingenuiTEA by adagio.. http://steepster.com/teas/teaware/15373-adagio-ingenuitea
It comes very highly recommended by most “Steepste’s” !!!!

Good thought — I may try out the ingenuiTEA as well. Really liked my PerfecTea, until the legs broke. I have also seen a similar tea maker at davidsTEA in Canada. You can bet I’ll look for weak points in the design, though, before I spend my money on one!
