The quest of creating the perfect cuppa is never ending for tea lovers. With preferences being different, some loving sugar and cream in their tea, while other liking to drink it simple, there can hardly be a recipe to please them all. However, a new invention created by Chai Master aims to bring this wish closer to reality. The company created Craftea and promises that their invention will deliver a perfect cup of tea.
Craftea’s main aim is to make the tea brewing process much simpler. At the same time, it will be able to extract as much flavor as possible, while preventing the tea from boiling over. In order to do so, the system uses the company’s proprietary “Vortex” technology. This technology uses a magnetically coupled stirrer that is set in the center of the kettle. The bottom half of the kettle is heated inductively in order to increase both efficiency and safety. The upper part, on the other hand, remains unheated.
The stirrer is able to draw the heat from the walls and create a faster fusion process. As such, it is able to extract as much flavor as possible from the leaves without shredding the content.
“Our vision was to make a revolutionary appliance that brings convenience, consistency and customization to a time honored beverage,” explained the creators of Craftea, Pratima and Jitu Keshav. “We believe in the traditional rituals of serving tea and chai, with each individual having their own special twist.”
Craftea comes with several pre-programmed features that allow its users to make more than just tea. The device can be used to make tea lattes, cocktails and various herbal infusions. Moreover, users can even save their brew settings in order to recreate their favorite types of tea whenever they want.
The device will start shipping in March. Right now, it can be pre-ordered for the discounted price of US$199 that also includes free shipping in the US. What do you think of Craftea?
