Sometimes you may prefer to pre-boil your water first before brewing your tea at the right temperature, just like my father does every morning. But that would take a bit of patience and skill.
First, you will need to boil the water. Second, you will have to let the water cool to the right temperature, by either guessing or a thermometer. Then you may steep your tea.
Here I'll tell you that ALL of the above work can be done automatically with a few taps on the Qi Aerista IoTea Brewer's app.
Here's how it works:
1. On the Brewer page of the Qi Aerista app, tap 'Settings' (on the top left corner).
2. Tap on 'Brew Mode' (second item from top).
3. Select 'Boil and Brew' and tap 'Confirm'.
4. Proceed with the normal brewing process with Qi Aerista IoTea Brewer.
Note: if you wish to restore to the default normal brewing mode, please go to Settings>Brew Mode to switch.
