I usually classify people between coffee drinkers and tea drinkers. I myself am mainly a tea drinker (do I do indulge in the occasional espresso if I want a quick pick me up). But one thing I’ve noticed is that it is the coffee drinkers that usually get the new and high tech devices for their liquid indulgence. For example, I’ve already mentioned the CBTL Kaldi Machine a few weeks back. It makes us tea drinkers feel left out.
That’s why I was so happy when I saw a new device that’s designed for tea drinkers. The IngenuiTEA Loose Leaf Tea Teapot is a great gadget that’s been especially designed for drinkers of loose leaf tea. The IngenuiTEA is a small teapot that looks inconspicuous and looks just like the other teapots in the market if you take a passing look at it. You put in your loose leaf tea inside and pour water inside, allowing the leaves to steep in the water. If you look at it, IngenuiTEA is actually kind of wide. This is a deliberate design decision so that the tea leaves have enough room to expand and completely infuse the hot water. Now here’s where the IngenuiTEA shows its, well, ingenuity. When you want to pour tea on to your cup, you don’t pour it at the top just like other teapots. Lift the IngenuiTEA and place it on top of the cup you want to use. The lip of your cup will now open a valve at the bottom and out pours your perfectly infused tea. It’s a brilliant concept. One of the complaints of drinking loose leaf tea is getting all of the leaf bits with every pour. With this brilliant solution from IngenuiTEA, none of those dregs get into your cup.
When you’re finished pouring your tea just lift the IngenuiTEA and the valve automatically closes. No spills at all.
