Introducing one of the newest competitors in the tea-making arena.

The Breville BTM800XL tea maker has a lot of handy tricks:

  • custom temperature and steep times for different kinds of tea
  • an automated brew basket that lowers and raises on program
  • “set it and leave it” for scheduled tea brewing

The positives:

  • BPA free lid
  • brew basket is big enough to allow for leaf expansion, even for oolongs in 1.5L of water

The negatives:

  • the lid absorbs aromas easily. Avoid strong-smelling teas, or leaving a tea in the pot overnight.
