Summary: I was patiently waiting for this to come out since I saw it on Breville's website months ago. I'm not sure why amazon.com itself does not sell this tea maker, but I purchased mine from [...] and I couldn't be happier. After switching to loose tea, I enjoyed experimenting with brewing time and tea strength but at times the constant attention needed in keeping track of time (especially the temperature each tea needed to be brewed in) could be a hassle.
Summary: This has all the features in a tea brew pot that I have been looking for. I can set the temp, brew time, and even set it to have fresh tea in the morning. Everything is customizable. I love it.
Summary: Guys I know it may be too much money for boiling water, but trust me, it is one freaking terrific device! The tea that comes out of this thing is beyond description. I do buy quality products but I'm not affixed of expensive stuff and have no problem to say if I spent too much. This thing makes best tea I ever had! I had tea in Drake's Palm Court in Chicago, Fairmont in Ottawa, and Brown in Denver, so I know what is good cup of tea is.
