Priced at an outlandish $1,499, the high-tech Teforia Infuser is built for luxury tea drinkers who seek a novel and automatic way of steeping their leaves.
From the front the Teforia Infuser certainly doesn't look like your average kitchen appliance.
Use the companion mobile app (iOS and Android) to see what types of tea the Teforia can brew and get status updates when it's in action.
Teforia sells special tea packs that have RFID tags inside their labels. Tap them against the Infuser's reader so the machine pulls up the correct recipe.
After a quick scan, peel off the tea pack's label and pour its contents into the infusion globe.
There's a big water tank in back of the machine, and it also has a filter.
The Teforia Infuser puts on an engaging show while processing the tea leaves with hot water.
Brewed tea flows into the glass carafe below in stages called "micro infusions."
You can pour brewed tea into a cup immediately or store it inside the carafe, which keeps it hot for 1 hour.
You won't find any true buttons here. Instead you get lit symbols that are faint and hard to decipher.
