Where to Buy: Eteaket
A tea timer is a must for any self-respecting tea drinker. This specially designed tea timer will not only look the part in your kitchen, it will ensure you get perfect results every time. It has 3 separate, colour-coded hour-glasses: 3 mins for green tea; 4 mins for black tea and 5 mins for white tea.
This is a classic sand hour-glass tea timer, but with a neat twist. Instead of just one hour-glass, this one has three… with three different colors of sand: green, black and yellow.
The hour-glass with the green sand is a 3-minute timer, which is perfect for most green teas or lighter infusions of black teas. The hour-glass with the black sand is a 4-minute timer, which is a medium infusion for black teas. The hour-glass with the yellow sand is a 5-minute timer which is perfect for white teas.
The three hour-glasses are housed in a beautiful brushed stainless steel frame that is very durable. It is something that will last for years, is easy to clean and keep clean, and will also look nice on a counter top or desk.
I like this nifty little gadget. It’s handy to have by the computer so that you can watch the time without standing over your teapot. And… let’s face it, you COULD use the timer on your oven, but, what if you need to time the au gratin potatoes? This lets you have your tea and your potatoes too!

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
