If you love your tea, then you know exactly how long you want it steep. You know the brand and flavor of tea that you want to drink, and you know how hot you want your water to be for steeping. Of course, you could always use your watch to time your tea, or you could even use a three-minute, hourglass egg timer.
But if you are like many people these days, you may find yourself grabbing your cup of tea and sitting at your computer. If this is the case, there’s a great website for you to use to make sure that you brew your tea for just the right amount of time.
Steep.it is the name of the site, and it is a simple tea timer. You do not have to register to use it, and there is nothing to download to your computer. It is simply a timer for your tea. It lists several different choices for common teas that you may find yourself brewing like green, black and herbal. You simply click on your tea type, and a brewing timer starts counting down to zero.
The site also has a handy little chart with different tea types, brewing temperatures and brewing times. But don’t worry, if you have a special blend, and with it a special brewing time, you can also set your own timer and begin the countdown.
The site is simple to use, and it works like a charm. You are sitting at your computer anyway, so you may as well use the time to brew the perfect cup of tea.
