It started as a trend but craft (or artisan or specialty) coffee proved able to withstand the test of time, probably because the people who really do care about their morning cup were more than just a few hundred hipsters in Seattle, London, or Berlin. What's probably the next trend is craft tea and there's a good chance it can become even bigger, because there are at least as many varieties of tea as coffee. And no matter which is one you like best, the Hario Craft Tea Maker can make it, brew it, and serve it!
The Hario Craft Tea Maker is a compact (165 x 101 x 207 mm or 6.5 x 4 x 8.1") electric pot that boils the water, brews your tea in the filter it comes with, and serves your drink. It has a capacity of 600 ml (20.3 fl oz) and has three time settings (5, 15, and 60 minutes) and three temperature settings (45°C/113°F, 80°C/176°F, and 93°C/199.4°F), so you can adjust the brewing to your exact liking. What's even better is that thanks to its versatility, your tea doesn't need to be just tea leaves: you can add fresh or dried fruit, flowers, or herbs, and create unique tea-based beverages, hot or cold!
