HOW DOES QI AERISTA SMART TEA BREWER HELP ME IN TEA BREWING?

When you need a perfect cup of tea, Qi Aerista has a few ways to help.

a) Default Brewing

You add water and tea leaves in Qi Aerista, select the tea type and tap 'Brew' on the touch panel. Qi Aerista will first brew the water to the desired temperature for the tea type. Once the temperature is reached, the patented brewing system will take place to control the water temperature, brewing time, water flow and tea leaf steeping during the entire brewing. 

After the brewing session is ended, Qi Aerista will buzz you that the tea is ready and will automatically switch to keep warm mode and keep your tea warm for up to an hour. 

b) Variable Temperature Kettle

Let Qi Aerista be your smart kettle when you are in the mood for traditional tea making. Simply, select the tea type and tap on 'Heat' on the touch panel. Once the water has heated to the right temperature, Qi Aerista will buzz you. Here, you have your water at the perfect temperature for your own way of tea making.

c) Boil and Brew

Similar to Default brewing where Qi Aerista will automatically brew for you, except that the water will be heated to boiling (100C/212F), then Qi Aerista will wait till the water temperature to drop back to the desired temperature (e.g. Black tea at 95C/203F) and then the automatic brewing will take place.

To share with you an inside story, Rick (Qi Aerista's creator), his father uses the Boil and Brew mode for his daily cup because he likes to see his water boiled first before brewing. :D

You can select this method of brewing using the Qi Aerista app.

We suggest 1 cup (0.23L/8oz) of water to 1 - 2 teaspoons of tea leaves.

 

WHAT KIND OF WATER I SHOULD USE FOR BREWING?

We suggest using clean drinking water that is safe to drink without boiling unless you selected the Boil and Brew mode. The water should also be low in mineral content to minimize scaling.
