Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Tea Maker™ Kettle, Silver

Product information

The Tea Maker™ from Sage by Heston Blumenthal exudes elegance, high quality design and innovation.

This kettle will revolutinise the way you drink tea. To extract the most delicate flavours, different teas need to be steeped at different temperatures and for different times. A motorised basket automatically lowers tea leaves into and out of the water at precisely the right time. It has fifteen pre-programmed settings, plus fully variable temperature, tea strengths and custom controls. It even has a programmable start feature so your tea will be ready for you when you wake up. The perfect cup of tea guaranteed for individual tastes.

With an ample 1.5L cord free jug, you can cater for friends and family easily. You can even detach the tea basket and it becomes a variable temperature, glass kettle. A push button and soft opening lid prevents hot water splatter for peace of mind. A LCD display keeps you updated at all times and a 60-minute keep warm function is ideal for entertaining or cooking purposes.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! A great product with a real quality feel to it. Would absolutely recommend to those that enjoy a variety of teas. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cup of tea This tea maker may be expensive but worth every penny. It's simple to use and makes a very good cup of tea to wake up to. 15 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent - would buy again This is my first ever review and I confess I never thought that I would end up reviewing what is essentially a fancy kettle but........ we have had this product for over a year now - we got it at a good price from John Lewis when it was reduced for some sale or other. My wife loves her kitchen gadgets and most of them end up gathering dust before being consigned to the back of the cupboard - but not in this case - it makes excellent tea time after time. At first I thought it would be a bit of a faff making the tea as all the 'work' is front-loaded in that it all has to be prepared up front rather than just flicking the kettle on - but in effect that is the beauty of the thing. The number of times I used to just flick a kettle on and then not get around to making the tea, or making the tea and just leaving it to brew for a couple of minutes and then getting distracted and either having stewed tea or even cold stewed tea that just needs throwing. With this I have 'just' made a cup of tea, forgotten about it and then gone back to it after nearly an hour to find it still hot and not stewed! I realise with JL's and Sages's own warranty this shouldn't be an issue but if anything happened to it, I would immediately go out and replace it! 11 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Really really love this product. Cant believe just how good it is. We never ever use bags but making a pot of tea each time can be a bit of a drag but not with this beauty! It's a breeze - just set it up and the maker does the rest, for a perfect cup of tea every time. Yes, its expensive but so worth it (If its on special offer!) 12 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a great tea maker! Many years ago we owned a teasmade and what an improvement this is. We set it to wake up with a cup of tea and we have not been disappointed with the quality of the tea that it brews. Much better than using a teabag and so flexible on brewing time and temperature. We have not used it to make anything other than black tea but I am sure it will manage all types. I particularly like the keep warm facility for up to an hour once the tea leaves have been removed after the brewing process. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Tea Maker/Kettle Ever What a simply brilliant invention! Easy to set, perfect tea every time and ready for that first cup of tea at the bed side every morning. Sometimes used just as a kettle too. 17 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big pot makes good tea It's big. We seldom use its full capacity. It's easy to clean, less easy to get the leaves out of their holder. It clutters up the draining board. But it does make really good tea, and you can let it get on with it. So you can set it going before breakfast, and get your cuppa when you're ready, without having to pay it any attention. We've tried it with various teas, and it does well with them all. 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surpassed my Expectations For a clever and sophisticated product it it also very easy to use. Both the pre-set and custom modes work equally well. It's a breeze to clean. And guess what, it makes great tea! I got mine in the sale so I didn't pay the full amount. But if I had I'd still be pleased with the result. 13 February 2015
