Air & Qi Aerista

So why are we referencing "Air" in Qi Aerista? That's because air is the main driving force behind our patented brewing system. Using air allows us to independently and reliably control the 4 key elements in making great tea: temperature, time, water flow and immersion. As a result, Qi Aerista makes it easy to brew all types of tea imaginable, perfect to your taste every time.
