Time is everything
Retro tech meets modernist styling in this Tea Hourglass Sand Timer. Handcrafted from stainless steel, rubber and sand, this simple but effective device is a stylish way to keep track of brewing time for all your luxury teas.
Designed to a sleek design that will sit perfectly on your kitchen shelf, the Hourglass Sand Timer comes with handy brewing guidance on the bottom. Combined with the right water temperature, it will ensure that you get the most out of every caddy without wasting a single leaf.
Tea aficionados know that timing is everything. Getting the steeping time right is an essential part of the brewing process: brew a green tea too long and it can leave a bitter taste in your mouth; pour a delicate white tea too early and those beautifully subtle characters may be lost on you.
But what tea needs what time? To make it easy for you, all teas sold on The Tea Makers of London’s online store come with brewing guidance. To prepare the perfect brew, simply check the recommended steeping time for your tea, flip the right hourglass for your style of luxury loose-leaf and wait for the sand to run down.
