The ingenuitTEA sits on your coffee vessel and dispenses tea from the bottom

It’s totally foolproof, lets you work with loose leaf and make blends, and it’s so easy not to spill. I just love it love it love it. Cleans real easily too. - Marcelo

I never could get over that this looks like a women peeing, but I have also been accused of being very immature. - SailingAway

Breville One-Touch Tea Maker

The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is my favorite kitchen appliance, and one of the few that I use daily. Making tea involves adding water, adding tea, and pressing a button. The Breville heats the water to the right temperature and maintains that temperature while it automatically lowers and raises the basket. You can use the presets to make all the common types of tea (or hot water), but the Breville is also fully programmable. It’s also easy to clean, and a fun conversation piece.

FORLIFE Stump Teapot

This is the business. It doesn’t look like much but you can re-steep the tea easily if you’re having a good quality green tea or oolong or something - not so easy with a French press. It’s also easy to clean and if the tea is getting too strong, you can just remove the infuser and it still works as a perfect teapot. It’s the best. - kittd
