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!
