REVIEW: Zarafina Tea Maker Suite – Tea Making at its Best

zarafina-tea-maker-suiteI know I have mentioned it before, but I am a big tea drinker. I rarely drink coffee so I am always on the look out for interesting teas or tea making equipment. That’s why I managed to come across the Zarafina Tea Maker Suite.

If you are a bit of a tea connoisseur then you will know that different teas require different water temperatures and different amounts of time to steep. This tea maker takes into account the different types of teas and therefore makes the perfect cup of tea every time.

What We Like

  • The Zarafina Tea Maker dispenses up to 16oz of tea at a time so you’re looking at about 2 cups of tea.
  • It adjusts to the different types of teas including black, oolong, green, white (my favorite) and herbal teas.
  • You can adjust the strength of the tea based on your personal preference from mild to strong.
  • You can use both loose leaf tea or tea bags in this unit.

What’s Included

  • ceramic teapot
  • 2 tea cups
  • serving tray

How Does it Work?

You simply pour water into the main chamber and then add your loose leaf tea or tea bags to the infuser.

You then adjust the settings to the type of tea you are using. First select from black, oolong, herbal, white or green tea. Next select whether you are using a tea bag or loose leaf tea and lastly select whether you want mild, medium or strong tea.

The machine then does the rest and pours out into the ceramic teapot which is included.

Krups Fast Touch Coffee Grinder

Krups Fast Touch Coffee Grinder ReviewGrinding your own coffee can really make the difference in the taste of your daily drink. Grinding the beans just before you brew ensures that the flavors are retained and the aroma is beautiful and rich.

The Krups Fast Touch Coffee Grinder has received exceptional reviews from consumers on the net. Many indicated that this machine had lasted them for years (over 20 years for some) without any problems.

You’re not limited to just grinding coffee with this machine either. It will grind nuts, spices and whole grains making this a very versatile little machine.

What We Don’t Like

  • It will grind spices, nuts or even whole grains.
  • It grinds up to 3 ounces of coffee at the one time.
  • It’s reasonably priced at under $20.
  • It’s small enough to store easily.
  • It’s simple and easy to use – just pop in the coffee beans and grind them.

What We Don’t Like

  • This coffee grinder doesn’t have any coarseness control so really only grinds at one level which tends to be more fine than coarse.
  • It can be a little bit fiddly to clean.

Up until recently I was living in a remote, rural area and anyone who lives in a rural area or is in an area constantly struck by power outages and storms, will appreciate the benefits of having  the Paula Deen Signature Enamel on Steel Percolator on hand.

The Paula Deen Signature Enamel on Steel Percolator holds a generous 8 cups of coffee.

This percolator has a colorful speckled porcelain exterior which is durable, stain resistant and easy to clean.  The spacious loop handle is designed to ensure that you have a comfortable grip while pouring out the coffee.

UPDATE:
Although it is considered to be a handy item to have on hand and it does look attractive,  the Paula Deen coffee perolator has been receiving mixed reviews and the majority of them are not positive.

Therefore we can no longer recommend this product and instead we prefer the Bialtetti Moka Express Stovetop Espresso Maker which consistently receives 5 star and 4 star positive reviews.
