Tea's Made!

Actually, that should be Teasmade.

I just love these little contraptions and I desperately want one. How cool would it be to have a cup of hot tea waiting for you at bedside every morning? Sadly, they are only available in the UK, and will not run on our US electrical system.

My mother-in-love in England says that they are rather noisy with a lot of spitting and sputtering, so perhaps they are not as wonderful as I imagine. But still .....

Not long ago, tea-friend, tea-expert and tea-author Eve Hill wrote an interesting article on the Teasmade, its history, etc. You can read it here.

Ever had a Teasmade? If so, what is it really like?

P.S. Teasmade is actually a brand name - there are other companies and models - both vintage and new - on the market today.

P.P.S. Avid collectors of these vintage tea makers are known as Teasmaniacs! Check them out here.
