I have not talked about culinary gadgets much on this blog. I am not really a gadget guy, but I could not resist when I saw this on Kickstarter.com.
This is called Teadrop. It is still in the works. They are trying to raise funds to manufacture it.
Teadrop is used to make loose-leaf tea.
How does it work?
You put your loose-leaf tea in the holder and set the twist timer. You drop the Teadrop in hot water to steep and the side caps slide over the mesh screens with the spinning of the time. When the time it up an alarm will sound (ring?) and your tea is done.
The side caps will stop the tea from steeping further, so you do not need to rush to get the tea out of the water.
You can pre-order your own Teadrop by making a pledge on their kickstarter.com fund drive.
