Teforia infusers identify a variety of essential variables in tea brewing, including (but not limited to) steeping time, infusion temperature, ratio of tea leaves to water, and number of infusions. These are all taken into account with respect to each specific tea’s shape and varietal properties, as well the terroir of where the tea was grown, when creating the recipe with the tea master or grower.
When using a Teforia Classic with your own tea, you need to add the tea first through the app by answering a few simple questions about the tea (shape, color, etc). We use the answers to pull the perfect recipe.
This process allows the Teforia Classic to bring out the full breadth of flavor for each tea, producing a much richer beverage than conventional methods.
The best instructions for how a particular tea is meant to be enjoyed come from the tea growers themselves — they know the land, the environment, and how the tea has been cultivated, treated and prepared every step of the way, in some cases for generations. We’ve had countless conversations with tea masters in the mountains of India and Taiwan, to make sure each tea recipe is perfect and according to their standards. From there, we've spent years of heads-down research on the science and technology needed to brew that cup — automatically and perfectly every time.
