Tea Strainer
Tea Strainer

Tea Strainer accommodates several types of tea and grasps their brewing temperatures with a simplified user interaction compared to current solutions on the marketplace for tea-brewing. Different types of tea have individual optimal brewing temperatures. For black teatypes it spans from 95-100degC, whereas white/green tea have an optimal preparation temperature of around 65degC. If these delicate teas are prepared above this temperature the tea becomes bitter due to tannin. Today, when brewing delicate tea types, users typically use a thermometer to control the right temperature of the water thus creating unnecessary waiting time and hassle.
