Tea Timer

The secret to a perfect cup of tea is all in the timing.

$15.95

Brew Story

From the minute you drop the teabag in hot water, the countdown begins. Take the guesswork out of tea steeping and tip over this elegant and easy-to-use timer instead. Unlike a typical hourglass, the jade-hued fluid inside flows from the bottom up, echoing the contents of your cup. For delicate teas like green and oolong, a minute or two will do, while black and herbal varieties should brew for the full five minutes. Handmade from acrylic and natural, non-toxic dyes by artisans in Albstadt, Germany.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Tea Timer:

      I love this tea timer! It is a unique design, with the hourglass filling upward rather than falling down. I tested it against a stopwatch and, while not exactly accurate to the second, it was certainly accurate enough for making tea. I no longer forget that my tea is brewing now that I can see the timer in front of me!

        It was smaller than I was expecting which was perfect. I didn't see it in action but it's cute even if it's just for decoration

          My tea-lover daughter was thrilled with it. She took it to college, so I don't know how it is holding up.
