If you are a tea connoisseur, you will know that steeping the perfect cup of Earl Grey, Darjeeling, or oolong is like a delicate art form. Tea quality, water temperature, and steeping time are all factors that can make or break a pot of your favourite brew. Luckily, innovations like precision tea makers can ease the meticulous process of steeping a great cup of tea.
For many tea aficionados, Hurom Tea Master is one of the best electric tea makers available on the market. For infusion perfection, it comes with pre-set temperatures that take the guesswork out of determining if the water is hot enough for oolongs or a little cooler for green tea. Other intelligent features include a full customisation mode and a keep-warm function. Even demanding tea drinkers will love this Hurom tea maker.
Tea is one of the most ceremonious drinks enjoyed globally. For some, it is another part of the daily ritual for beginning, accentuating, or ending a day. Whether a cup of Darjeeling Black Tea in the afternoon, chamomile before bed, or green tea in the morning, tea is a big part of many people’s lives.
It is surprising why so many tea drinkers and aficionados spend extravagantly on their tea of choice yet cut corners on how they make it. The quality of your brew depends on two factors above all else: time and temperature.
When you use too hot water, it is often called “burning” the tea. “Burning the tea” means the hot water has over-extracted the tannins, and the tea becomes astringent. When you use too cold water, you will often under-extract the tannins, and your tea will lack the full flavour and character it was meant to have.
If you want to make the perfect cup of tea with nuanced or layered flavour, your best bet is to use a high-quality electric quality tea maker with pre-set temperatures and multiple settings that can help you fine-tune your brewing process.
Eliminate the guesswork of water temperature and brew time for different types of teas with Hurom Tea Master. It perfectly brews any kind of tea at the right temperature and for the right amount of time – from Oriental tea, grain tea, leaf tea to fruit tea and even Moka pot coffee. With this machine, the world-famous Hurom brand has brought convenience, simplicity, and efficiency into a small, practical, and useful product.
In addition to the four pre-set programmes (boil, herbal/black tea, green/white tea and coffee), the electronic “my menu” control allows for setting different brewing temperatures (60-95ºC) as well as the steeping time (up to ten minutes), to perfectly correspond to the used tea type.
When your tea is fully steeped, the Tea Master alerts you with a beep, and it automatically shifts to the keep-warm mode for up to 12 hours. As usual with many Hurom products, build quality is impressive. This beautifully crafted glass carafe is made of German Schott-Duran glass, which is heat-resistant and durable.
Elegant and functional at the same time, the Hurom tea maker is a sophisticated model with a number of features that are greatly appreciated by both amateurs and aficionados alike.
Brewing tea to the right temperature: How to make the perfect cup of tea
Tea connoisseurs believe that brewing tea is nothing short of an art form. Much like coffee or wine, different types of teas require different temperatures and different steeping times to reveal their flavours properly.
When tea is brewed, tannins, amino acids, aroma and flavour compounds are released from the leaves. Each of these components has an impact on the flavour of your tea. Amino acids are responsible for sweetness, while tannins and caffeine are responsible for bitterness. These components have a different resolution rate that changes with the temperature of the water.
Some kinds of tea require less heat, while others need more to maximise their distinctive qualities. Brewing at the optimal water temperature for each type of tea allows the compounds to be released in a balanced way and leads to great-tasting tea.
When the water temperature is too hot, the tannins are dissolved, and other desirable compounds are destroyed. Thermal shock from overly hot water can also burn sensitive tea leaves. The result will be a bitter, astringent, and unbalanced brew.
When the water temperature is too cold, the same compounds destroyed with over-heated water will not dissolve properly in under-heated water. The finished tea will lack balance and simply will not have as much taste, and you may be unable to experience the full-bodied flavour the tea leaves offer at their optimum temperature.
For infusion perfection, Hurom tea maker features several pre-programmed functions to ensure the temperature and brewing time of your drink are ideally suited to your tea type. Pre-programmed functions include those for black, white, green and herbal teas.
