How to prepare tea using Teavana perfect tea maker?
To prepare tea using Teavana perfect tea maker, you would require some equipment, which are as follows:
- Measuring spoons

First step: Using the measuring spoons

Boil 16 ounces or 2 cups of water in the kettle or use a pot that can be kept on the stovetop. After the water boils, transfer the hot water carefully into the Teavana perfect tea maker. If you are not careful with the hot water, you could end up burning yourself.
Third step: Steep the tea
Close the lid of the tea maker after pouring the boiling water. Allow the tea to steep into the boiling water. The steeping process can aid in providing flavor to the tea. Depending on the type of tea you like, you can soak it for around 3-8 minutes.

As the button on the Teavana tea maker’s bottom touches your mug, the tea would automatically start pouring into the cup.
When your mug is filled with the required amount of tea, lift the Teavana perfect tea maker and the tea would automatically stop falling in your mug.
