Brew the perfect cup every time with Tea's smart tea timer and note taker. Whether you're looking up what "Sencha" is when you're at a cafe or refining your oolong's steep time to perfection, Tea's got you covered. **Features** • Tea Encyclopedia: Learn about teas from all over the world with Tea's all-new Encyclopedia: where they're grown, how they're made, preparation tips, signs of quality, and more! Tea can now recognize over 500 tea names. • Tea to Try: Tea's Encyclopedia integrates with Reminders to allow you to create a list of teas to try. • Smart Tea Timer: Tea's terrific timer remembers your favorite brew times for each of your teas. • Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram Integration: With the tap of a button, you can have Tea share your tasting notes and photos with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. • Teapot Picker: Tea's teapot picker lets you choose which teapot you'll use to brew your tea, and can even automatically tell you how much tea you'll need for that teapot. • Notes and Rating System: After your timer is up, Tea lets you save tasting notes, take a photo and rate your brew. Tea even keeps track of your brewing time, tea amount, and temperature, so that you can hone in on the perfect brew for each of your teas. • Default Brew Suggestions: Not all teas are meant for use with boiling water. Tea comes pre-loaded with brew suggestions (temperature, time, leaf amount) for over 200 tea names and 12 tea types, all prepared by tea expert Thomas Smith. • Automatic Unit Conversion: Tea's Set Brew screen automatically converts units for you. If your tea's temperature instructions come in degrees Celsius, for example, Tea automatically converts it to Fahrenheit if that is your preferred unit. • Inventory Tracker: When you input a new tea, Tea automatically calculates how many brews you can make with that tea. Each time you use Tea's timer, Tea recalculates how many brews you have remaining. Be in full command of your tea inventory. • Multiple Infusion Support: Tea intelligently counts your tea infusions and preloads your notes with infusion number. • Shake to Shuffle: Can't decide on which tea to have? Simply give your iOS device a shake, and Tea will select one at random for you!

    Since getting a variable temp kettle, I have been looking for a tea app that has brewing guide (temp and timer) and/ info. I've tried several apps but most are limited to company's tea selection. I wanted more of a general app that's got all the basic tea and blends as well as exotic blends etc. I think this app would be better if they categorise and subcategorise it. There's not even a simple green tea or green jasmine tea. The database isn't very big. Although it allows you to add your own tea but it's not really a guide.

    A lot of details about different teas and how to brew them. List not exhaustive. Looked up Orange Peko and could not find it. Work in progress? Would be nice to have a history and general over view about tea such as basic differences between white, black, green etc.
  • A great app for tea lovers

    If you like tea then this is a must have, extremely cool and really nicely designed. Good job.
  • Fantastic, best tea app available with a beautiful design.

    The encyclopaedia section is brilliantly presented and informative (although not entirely comprehensive- no mention of common spiced blends like masala chai, and no lavender in the list of herbal infusions) The brew alarm and blender's notepad will start me experimenting with blends at home.
  • Nice app, limited use

    Looks really nice, easy to navigate, but at the end of the day, apart from making a database of your own teas, it doesn't really do that much. Why on earth would you want to keep a record of the number of cups of tea you've had - or indeed find out how many "brews" you have left in the tea caddy? A nicely presented app, but of minimal use.
  • Tea for me!! ^_^

    This app is perfect for helping me decide which of my stash to have and to know whats in the cupboard! Just what I needed! Only way to improve would be a search option but that's just me being picky! Thanks!! ^_^
  • Fantastic app

    Fantastic app which is well made and easy to use. However an improvement I would like to see is that when you change the quantity of cups or ml you are making it automatically adjusts the amount of tea needed etc as a suggestion.

    I'd tried all the tea timers currently available but hadn't found anything to be that much better than the timer in Clock. Tea does exactly what you'd want from a tea timer and then that little bit more. Overall it's a surprisingly neat little package or perhaps more aptly SFTGFOP(1)!
  • Functional and Beautiful

    This is the best functional tea cataloguing app I've found. The UI is a joy to behold. This should finally remove the confusion about what to do with which tea!
