Alkymea offers a little, handy and decorative tea thermometer designed in wood. For a tea drinker who wants the best prepared cup of tea, a thermometer is indispensable.
The temperature of the tea water is important since it determines which substances are released and how fast, and this also influences the taste. Some substances are destructed if the temperature is too high, while other substances should have boiling water. This means that the optimal water temperature depends on the type of tea. Please note! The tea water should boil first and then cool off until the desired temperature is obtained.
