Long ago, sometime during the 16thcentury, man first discovered tea. The folks back then had to start a fire, boil some water, add in some tea leaves, wait a while, pour it into a cup, and then finally get around to drinking it. Then in early 1800s James Sharp invented the gas stove. Obviously, back in the day, this was a big deal, for people no longer had to deal with the hassle of starting a fire using wood. And so, throughout the years technology has greatly improved and evolved the tea-making process. Nowadays, we do not even use the stove to heat up water. Most of us just use the electric kettle.
Just when we thought that it could not get any better than the electric kettle, Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal, presents the world with the Sage Tea Maker. All a tea-drinker needs to do is fill the Tea Maker’s basket with tea leaves and set his/her preference. Tell the machine the type tea you are using and select your preferred strength. The Sage Tea Maker will do the rest. This Jetsons-age contraption also features a timed auto-start function, so there will be a fresh pot of tea waiting for you when wake up in the morning.
