Time your tea online

Want an easy online timer you can use in your kitchen? This one is specifically designed for tea steeping, but it's pretty versatile.

This tea is just right.

A computer can be a truly useful kitchen gadget. Don't believe me? Just point your browser to and behold! It is a handy chart of tea-steeping times and temperatures, with a timer functionality that works with visual and aural cues, and the flexibility to work it any way you want. You can type various commands right in your browser's address bar: or, for example.

The timer counts down with a color-changing screen effect and dings (and displays a pop-up) when your tea is ready. You can even navigate away from the page, and will still continue timing and alert you when it's done. It's cute and free, and you might even find it useful.
