Perfect Cup Tea Timer

A compact trio of color-coded timers takes the guesswork out of steeping white, green, and black teas.


The Sands of Tea Time

You've succeeded in obtaining some exquisite teas—grown, harvested, and prepared with the utmost care. Now it's time to make the perfect cup of tea—and timing is crucial. This compact trio of color-coded hourglass timers takes the guesswork out of correctly steeping white (1 min), green (2 mins), and black (3 mins) teas. Accurate timing maximizes your teatime pleasure: understeeping fails to capture all of a fine tea's subtle, complex flavors, and oversteeping releases too many bitter, astringent tannins. Once the timing's taken care of, you can start aiming for the ideal brewing temperature for each tea, conveniently noted on the top of the timer. Made in China.
