Teapot with button Gongfu

Do you like tea?

Then you should know that tea leaves should be brewed for a set period of time, usually around 5 minutes. Exceeding this time will add bitter taste to the brew, and boiling it for too long may even break down theine into dangerous alkaloids. I want to show off the new Gongfu style brewing teapot I recently got. It has a container for the tea leaves inside and a button. Put in some tea, add hot water, and close the lid. After required time, just press the button, and the brew will go down, bringing the used tea leaves out of the water. It’s very convenient as you can keep the brew ready for quite some time without loosing the taste. The only drawback is the easypot is so small, basically for one cup. However, bigger pots are also available.
