Creative Tea Drinking

Tea drinking and brewing is an art form often patronized on YD. Adding to our growing list is this delightful Turtle Tea Kettle. The kettle doesn’t discriminate against loose-leaf, teabags and compressed-tea, tea drinkers’ coz its comfy enough brewing any of these sorts. The added advantage of a separate glass container for the loose tealeaves makes sure you don’t get any debris while sipping your drink. If the creative-cook gets the better of you; heck you can even use the kettle to brew up some exotic hot beverage and treat yourself!

This is how the kettle works:

Add the loose tealeaves to the glass container and pop the cap on it and load it into the water filled kettle. Place your turtle kettle on the stove, set the timer on the cap, and wait for the ring. The glass container has very small machined holes so that the tea can be infused properly without moving about in the water. So after when you pour your tea to drink it, you won’t be sucking in the bits of tea leaves.

To boil water simply slap on the cap without plugging in the glass container and wait for the whistle to sound.

Made from ceramic, the kettle features a side window that lets you keep a check on the water levels of the container. The handle and timer cap is made out of a heat resistant phenolic plastic, making them easy to handle when hot.

A cute, new way to brew the cuppa!

    Do you sell this creative tea pot? (or this is just a concept?) If so, where I can buy it. Thanks!

  • Jason says:

    I think you’re supposed to put the tea leaves in after the water is hot, right? Does it matter? Im pretty sure you should boil the tea leaves with the water, the tea will be bitter.

    • Jason says:

      I meant “Shouldn’t” boil the tea leaves with the water.

      • Ana says:

        Yeah you’re right. High temperatures burn the essential oils in tea which creates…bitter tea

        • Carl says:

          completely correct. you can even buy tea kettles that after boiling maintain the correct temperature for the tea, so as not to scorch the leaves. you cannot boil leaves. is this a project devoid of research?

          • Lexi says:

            Unless you’re making those Canton style milk tea. Then you need really bitter tea. 😛

            But anyway, I’m thinking maybe they boil the water first before inserting it? Unless this kettle really IS for making Canton style milk tea…

      Hi folks, most of what you see on YD are just concepts, unless specified!

      Real deals are mostly found under the Review section, check that out!

      My wife wants the Turtle Tea Kettle. How many must I purchase to make her dream a reality?

      There must be a numerical threshold which would justify manufacture (even if only limited).

      We are some of the masses, clamoring for a useful product, please consider our request.

      Please!

    P.S. – Sorry, forgot to tell you great post!

    this kettle looks fantastic but i am not sure if the tea should be steamed as opposed to having hot water poured over them.
    once the water has boiled and gone off the boil, then this is the time to pour it over the tea.
    tea should not be scolded or put under extreme heat such as steam.

    Very goooood !

  • david reno says:

    unfortunely, you cant boile the water to make a good tea, and boile the tea with the water is even worse.

    I think this is the most complicated solution to something that's not even a problem.
