Tech Test Product Review: Teforia Leaf
• Pros: Beautiful, easy to use, makes great tea.
• Cons: Expensive, tied to proprietary tea from Teforia.
• Bottom line: I’ve never come across a cooler way to make tea.
I’m a tea drinker.
Seeing that it’s summertime, I drink iced tea every day.
But in the cooler months, I enjoy a cup hot.
I find the ritual of making it very relaxing.
There’s something about picking out a tea, heating the water, steeping, waiting and then enjoying the tea that makes me happy.
If there were a high-tech way to make tea, I wasn’t aware of it. But I was made aware of a countertop tea infuser called the Teforia Leaf that’s been happily brewing in my kitchen for the last few weeks.
The Leaf is as beautiful a gadget as I’ve ever reviewed. The infuser looks lovingly designed and it comes packaged in custom-sewn protective bags.
Apple’s Jony Ive couldn’t have designed a better-looking infuser.
The Leaf is actually Teforia’s second-generation infuser, replacing the Teforia Classic. The Leaf and Classic share the same design, but at $399, the Leaf costs less than half the price of the Classic.
It would be easy to describe the Leaf as a Keurig for tea, but that wouldn’t be doing it justice.
The previous-generation Classic let users use their own teas.
