This amazing Tea Maker produces an incredible rich, robust and aromatic brew without bitterness or loose leaves in the cup! The difference is the filtering system. Simply add your tea and water at the correct temperature, to the carafe. When brewing is complete, place the carafe on top of your cup. Tea is dispensed through the patented gravity filter system that creates rich, flavorful tea and filters out the leaves. Amazing shut-off system instantly stops the flow of liquid once you lift the carafe off the cup - no drips, no mess. Includes a coaster in the same Forest Green color, for the carafe to sit on.
