CONGRATULATIONS
On the purchase of your new Breville Tea Maker
Today, tea is the most consumed beverage
in the world after water. Whether your taste
preference is for a rich full bodied Darjeeling
tea, a delicate first picked Japanese Green
tea or one of the hundreds of herbal teas
now available, all tea drinkers know the
special moment of escape that can be
found while drinking that perfect cup.
Yet brewing tea is both an art and a
science. Tea varieties are grown and
produced in different environments and
require specific water temperatures and
controlled brew times to allow their unique
flavour and aroma to develop during
brewing. Boiled water is not considered
good for making many tea types as the
boiling process removes oxygen, making
the water stale. To bring out the optimal
quality and taste of more delicate tea leaves
such as green, oolong and white tea, a
lower temperature will produce a better
flavoured cup of tea while boiling water
may scald the tea leaves and result in a
3
bitter, astringent brew. Similarly, brewing
the tea for too long may result in a bitter,
unpleasant brew, while brewing for too
short a period may leave the tea weak
and tasteless.
The Breville Automatic Tea Maker is fully
programmable for all types of tea, water
temperatures and brew times, eliminating
the guesswork so you can enjoy a perfect
cup of tea, every time.

TEA INSIGHTS

tea insights
Tea Types
There are four main types of teas from the
tea plant camellia sinensis. The picking and
processing methods determine the type of
tea finally produced.
1. Black Tea
Black tea is the most common type of
tea worldwide. It is made by fermenting
the harvested leaves for a couple of
hours before heating or drying. This
oxidation darkens the leaves and
increases the amount of caffeine. Of all
the teas, black tea has the strongest
colour and flavour.
2. White Tea
White tea is the rarest and the most
exclusive tea. White tea consists of the
whitish buds of the tea plant which are
steamed then left to dry naturally. This
tea is low in caffeine and has a slightly
sweet flavour.
3. Green Tea
Green tea makes up approximately
ten percent of the world’s tea. The
leaves are picked, rolled and dried
before they can go brown. Green tea
has a distinctive aroma and has a
slight astringent taste.
4. Oolong Tea
Oolong Tea is semi fermented,
which means leaves are processed
immediately after picking. They only
have a short period of oxidation which
turns the leaves from green to red/
brown. Its leaves have a floral, fruity
quality and hence have a delicate fruity
taste. It is recommended not to drink
Oolong tea with milk, sugar or lemon.
5. Herbal infusions or Tisanes
Herbal infused teas are not produced
from the tea plant, but from flowers,
leaves, roots or seeds. Common herbal
beverages are chamomile, peppermint,
fennel, rose hip, and lemon verbena.
Herbal infusions that do not contain
tea will generally not become bitter
with extended brews. These can often
be brewed with boiling water 3 times
without jeopardising the taste.
6. Blends
Tea producers make blends by
combining different types of teas, often
in order to achieve flavour consistency
from one season to the next. Common
black tea blends include English
Breakfast, Earl Grey, Irish Breakfast,
and Russian Caravan.
TIP:
Brewed tea leaves make an ideal
garden fertilizer and help condition
the soil.
Tea Storage
• Teas stored inside a vacuum sealed
bag can be stored for up to two years,
depending on the quality and grade of
tea. Once opened, tea should be stored
in an airtight container and kept in a dry
and dark place.
• Once opened, black teas will last longer
than green and oolong teas but all tea
needs to be stored in ideal conditions.
• You can tell when tea is past its best if it
has lost its aroma and will create either
a bitter or dull tasting cup.
11
tea insights
Tips for optimal Tea BREWING
• Water quality affects taste. For best
results, use filtered water.
• Finer tea particles and leaves will infuse
more quickly than whole leaves. As a
result, finer tea particles often release
too much tannin too quickly, creating a
harsher taste. Adjust the brewing time
until desired strength is achieved.
• Using the tea scoop provided, use
roughly one scoop of tea per cup /
250ml of water.

CARE & CLEANING
Your Breville Tea Maker
28
Ensure the Tea Maker is turned OFF by
pressing the TEA|Cancel button (when
brewing tea) or the HOT WATER|Cancel
button (when heating water) on the Power
Base. The Tea Maker is OFF when the
button surround illumination goes out.
Remove the power plug from the wall outlet.
2. Alternatively, the Jug Lid is dishwasher
safe. Position the Jug Lid vertically so
the scale filter is facing upwards. This
will allow water to drain properly.
3. Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior
to using.
Cleaning the Glass Jug
NOTE:
Allow all parts of the Tea Maker
to cool completely before
disassembling and cleaning.
NOTE:
Only the Jug Lid, Tea Basket, Tea
Basket Lid and Tea Scoop are
dishwasher safe.
!
Never immerse the BASE
OF THE GLASS JUG, POWER
Base, power cord or
power plug in water or
allow moisture to come in
contact with these parts.
1. After each use, empty the Glass Jug. Do
not allow brewed tea to stand overnight.
2. Wipe the interior of the Glass Jug with
a soft damp sponge or rinse with warm
water. Tea deposits will enhance the
flavour of the brewed tea, so if only
using as a Tea Maker do not wash
with soapy water.
3. Wipe the exterior of the Glass Jug with
a soft damp cloth to clean.
!
NEVER IMMERSE OR WASH
EXTERIOR OF GLASS JUG
UNDER RUNNING WATER.
Cleaning the Jug Lid and integrated
scale filter
1. Wash the Jug Lid in warm soapy
water with a soft sponge, rinse and
dry thoroughly. The integrated scale
filter can be cleaned by placing under
running hot water and rubbing with a
cleaning cloth or brush.
NOTE:
Do not use chemicals, steel wool, or
abrasive cleaners to clean the inside
or outside of the Glass Jug as these
may scratch the surface.
29
4. To remove the build-up of tannin,
the astringent chemical constituent
of tea, fill the Glass Jug with water up
to the water maximum mark (1500mL
WATER MAX) and either:
a)Add the juice of one lemon, as well
as the lemon and boil. Leave to soak
overnight then discard the solution.
Fill the Glass Jug with clean water,
boil, then discard the water. Repeat
if necessary.
or,
b)Add 6 tablespoons of white vinegar
and boil. Leave to soak overnight
then discard the solution. Fill the
Glass Jug with clean water, boil,
then discard the water. Repeat
if necessary.
5. Dry thoroughly with a soft, lint-free cloth
before using.
NOTE:
Through regular use over time, scale
build-up can affect the performance
and the life of the Tea Maker. Lime
and phosphate are common forms
of scale that can damage your
Tea Maker. Lime scale, a harmless
mineral, comes in the appearance
of white-coloured or rusty looking
build up on the inner walls and inner
base of the Glass Jug. Phosphate
scale can’t be seen, however, it can
cause the water to appear cloudy
when heated. To prevent scale from
damaging your Tea Maker, ensure
to de-scale the Glass Jug regularly.
Use a commercial de-scaling agent
and follow the instructions that
come with the agent.
30
Cleaning the Tea Basket Lid,
Tea Basket and Tea Scoop
1. Wash the Tea Basket Lid, Tea Basket
and Tea Scoop in warm soapy water
with a soft sponge, rinse and dry
thoroughly. A non-abrasive liquid
cleanser or mild spray solution may be
used to avoid build-up of stains. Apply
the cleanser to the sponge, not the
accessory surfaces, before cleaning.
2. Alternatively, these accessories are
dishwasher safe.
3. Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior
to using.
Cleaning the Power Base
1. Wipe the Power Base with a soft
damp sponge.
2. Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior
to inserting the power plug into a
wall outlet.
Storage
1. Ensure the Tea Maker is switched off,
cleaned and dried before storing.
2. Ensure that the assembled Tea Basket
is securely attached to the magnetic
post within the Glass Jug.
3. Ensure that Jug Lid is securely
in place.
4. Wrap the power cord around the power
cord storage under the Power Base.
5. Stand the Tea Maker upright on the
Power Base. Do not store anything
on top.
