Tea Gadgets

Yesterday, Angela at Tea With Friends posted about Tea Apps on her new ipod touch.  Thanks for your educational post, Angela.  I need App lessons so I can learn how to download more tea Apps on my iphone. 

A couple of weeks ago, I found a free Tea Timer app and downloaded it.  It shows you the correct water temperature and time for brewing black, green, white and oolong teas and herbal infusions in a mild, medium,or strong brew using either loose leaf or a teabag.

Thanks to Angela's post, I remembered having it on my phone.  I decided to try it out at breakfast with a friend at a local restaurant.  I ordered "hot tea."  The server brought the usual little metal pot of  hot water, a teabag and a mug.   I set the timer for black - medium - teabag. 

OK, I admit for a tea fanatic lke myself who drinks multiple cups of tea every day,  the tea timer wasn't necessary, but it sure is a fun tea gadget!

That looks like another fun tea app. I'll have to check and see what my phone is capable of - I'm not good about reading the manuals. :-)
