Admittedly, we as Americans don't generally consider ourselves to be aficionados of fine teas and blends. Of course, that all changes when iced tea is introduced into the mix.

I prefer a good, unsweetened iced tea to nearly any other beverage, if we're leaving adult beverage considerations out of the mix.

I was recently perusing amazon's vast selection of espresso machines, coffee makers and other relevant items, when I came across a product that would seem to be a game changer for those of us who dig our iced tea beverages....

The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker Review...

The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is quickly becoming one of the industry's hottest sellers...!


Now, I'm not fully qualified to review this Breville tea maker, because I don't own one... YET! This small appliance is very high up on my wishlist, and if I ever find my way back into the black, then this is the machine I want for my kitchen.

The reviews for this product are through the roof, and most of those have been written by verified Amazon purchasers, which is an important consideration by those in the know. See, many Amazon reviews are written by sellers and manufacturers in order to boost their credibility.

By looking for reviews written by verified amazon purchasers, or members of the Linkvine program, you can be sure that you are reading something written by somebody who has actually used the product.

I digress...

Tea makers in general can usually be purchased for very low prices, so the Breville One-touch tea maker will seem a bit pricey to those who stumble upon it for the first time. Considering the mechanism behind the brew, many will also quickly see the genius behind the product.

From the outside, this tea maker looks like any other pitcher that you would set out in the sun to make sun tea in, but if you look closely at the picture, then you will notice the floating steeper mechanism that will sit neatly on any level of water that you add to the machine.

This steeping container holds loose-leaf teas, so you can throw away all those teabags that have lost most of their flavor by the time they are used anyway. Since the steeper floats, you can add as much or as little water as you like, which means that you control how weak or strong to brew your tea.

One of the truly neat features of this Breville tea maker machine is that you can select your brew settings based on the type of tea you are using, or set a custom blend. In other words, there are different settings for green, black oolong, etc.

Loos-leaf teas aren't all that expensive, when you consider the alternative, which now becomes a monumental waste of money. For those who are not familiar with loose leaf teas, they are readily available for purchase at specialty stores, and even at some supermarkets.

Of course, those teas are also available at Amazon. heck, what isn't, right?

Once again, I digress...

Sure, there are cheaper tea makers on the market, but you definitely get what you pay for when it comes to small kitchen appliances. I've been through enough slow cookers and microwaves to speak to that fact from experience.

Take a closer look at the Breville One-touch tea maker on the Amazon site, and see what all the hoopla is about...!

Curtly put, I can't wait to get me one of these gadgets...!
