The Perfectea from Teavana
Teavana 16 oz Perfectea Maker
The fuss that comes from making tea is entirely removed with Teavana’s Perfectea Maker. Throw in your tea (loose or bags will work), add hot water, steep, put it over your mug and out it drains. It makes two mugs or the perfect amount to fill your portable mug. You turn it over the dump out your tea, rinse, and that’s it. The only downside is the ruined visual aesthetic from tea stains. It is made from clear BPA-free plastic, and despite all the tricks for stain removal, nothing works. While my best teapot, it isn’t the prettiest. It may be worth splurging on the glass version. Twice the price, but easier to clean? Perhaps.
