Tea & Crowdfunding: Startup to Launch Qi teamaker on Kickstarter
Keyway Innovations, a startup company based in Hong Kong and Shanghai, has developed the Qi teamaker, a first-of-its-kind tea making product that aims to reinvent the world’s tea brewing experience. They will soon launch a Kickstarter campaign and needs your support to bring their product to the market.
Next to water, tea is the most popular drink in the world, being appreciated by millions of people from different backgrounds and cultures every day. Aside from its great taste, tea also comes in many forms and flavors that offer a wide range of benefits.
While making tea seems easy, making good tea is not. So the Keyway Innovations team aims to deliver an innovative and modernized brewing experience with their Qi teamaker to today’s tea lovers, enabling everyone to effortlessly enjoy good quality and healthy tea as part of the metropolitan lifestyle.
The Qi teamaker takes care of the 4 key elements in brewing a perfect cup of tea, namely water temperature, brewing time, water flow, and tea leaf expansion. At the same time, it provides lots of additional features that make tea brewing easy and enjoyable, whether it is for traditional teas, HK-style milk tea, bubble tea, floral teas or even iced teas.
What makes the Qi teamaker truly unique among all existing tea maker products is its patent-pending technology that does not use a water pump or mechanical agitator to create the necessary water flow. This allows for a hassle-free automatic brewing process with simple preparation and cleanup.
The Qi teamaker comes with 2 versions: Standard and Expert. The Standard version is equipped with built-in programs for brewing many tea varieties, water/leaf separation architecture, clear glass body, aroma-enhancing design, manual rinse tea, and keep warm. The Expert version adds in more features such as customizable brewing settings, automatic rinse tea and automatic dispense tea.
The Keyway Innovations team has spent over 4 years of market research and technology development to put together the product that has become the Qi teamaker today. The core technical aspects of this remarkable tea maker are protected by worldwide patent applications.
Keyway Innovations will soon launch a Kickstarter campaign to help bring the Qi teamaker to tea enthusiasts all over the world. The company needs additional funding to successfully undergo the mass production stage, including finalized product design, prototyping and tooling, testing safety certifications, materials and components, manufacturing and quality control, and handling and logistics.
