the TeaSpot: Automatic Teapot

In keeping with the tea theme today… I wanted to share another fabulous find that should appeal to modern design lovers out there: the world’s first Automatic Teapot! The newest product from eco-conscious company the TeaSpot, this contemporary teapot has an integrated timer that you can set for the type of tea you want – black, green, or herbal.

Then, it automatically removes the loose leaves from the water at the correct time so you always end up with a perfectly steeped pot of tea… nice! Even Oprah is a fan!

the TeaSpot also has a great line of Steeping Cups and Steeping Mugs in fun colors. I’m especially loving the vibrant yellow and lime green hues for spring!

I’m a big fan of your site and tea, but not this teapot. My entry here explains why.

It sounds handy. I sometimes forget to time the infusion when I am in front of my computer

Tracey SAYS:

Just need some modern “munchies” or tea sandwiches to go with it. Great design in a simple way.

My first thought was not a positive one after reading about this teapot. Where has the personal touch gone. Does everything have to be Automatic? It does look good though.

Chris SAYS:

I agree with what Bob said. This just removes the personal connection to what I feel should be very personal indeed. That is what tea is about to me.

Susan SAYS:

To each their own, I guess – because the idea of an automatic teapot sounds pretty good to me! Love the color combo too!

Marisa SAYS:

automatic tea pot? i dunno, I still like the idea of enjoying a good cup of tea the old fashion way. I suppose is good for people that is always on the go. I love the colors too.
