A butler for your tea

Breville is famous for its high-end kitchen appliances, and a recent tea-related entry from the company is the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker.

As the name suggests, this kettle/teapot does nearly the work for you: simply put in the water and the tea, tell the teamaker which kind of tea you have (green, oolong, black?), and press the button. The Breville heats the water to the right temperature and dunks in the tea leaves for the appropriate amount of time, then raises the leaf basket out of the water, which is key to preventing oversteeping.

This would make a wonderful holiday gift for a tea-lover on your list — but you'd better start saving up now.
