Here is a Useful Online Tool to Help You Steep Perfect Tea

Whenever I am stressed, overbooked or simply feel like tearing someone’s face off, I instead choose a soothing cup of tea. A nutritious cup of tea not only aides in calming nerves or warming up a chilly day, but can also assist your body in preventing high blood pressure, colorectal cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and can help lower your cholesterol. The benefits are still being discovered. The trick is that the best cup of tea requires proper storage and steeping.

If you ever find yourself with a bitter cup of tea, or one that is simply flavored water, something is off. Like ordering your favorite coffee drink and getting an awful brew, sipping on an unappetizing cup of tea can really make your day go sour. Tea-clock is a useful tool for those who want to balance the steep time of their favorite tea to ensure they enjoy every last luscious drop of each cup. GitHub user krtek developed Tea-clock and is still testing new additions to the app. The interface is minimalist, clean and relatively intuitive.

    The site offers choices of teas: White, Yellow, Green, Oolong, Black, Herbal and Fruit. After choosing whichever tea you are drinking, you are directed toward how long steeping will take. You can choose to receive your time quote in Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin, Rømer and other conversions. You can also set an alarm to go off when it’s time to sip at your leisure. Tea is still a bit of a well-kept secret in the Americas, as coffee drinks and highly-caffeinated libations dominate the market. Tea-clock helps cut out some of the guesswork on making the perfect cup of tea.

    As Aprilynne Pike writes in Illusions, “As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There’s a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother’s pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, ‘In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes.’”
