Mychai / Personal Tea Machine


Mychai is a personal, portable tea maker that helps you get your cup of tea anytime, anywhere! Simply open and load the device with your favorite leaves and select one of four tea categories displayed on top. Then, drop it in 1-2 cups of water and it will automatically start heating to the ideal brewing temperature before dispensing the leaves. The hatch to the tea containing mesh closes once the brewing is done. Mychai is rechargeable and works on nano-technology.
