Congratulations
On the purchase of your new Gourmet Tea Advanced Automatic
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 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 Gourmet Tea Advanced Automatic
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
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.
35
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.

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.
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
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.
ATTENTION: Never immerse or wash exterior of glass jug under running
water.
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.
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 appliance. To prevent scale from damaging your appliance, ensure to de-scale
the Glass Jug regularly. Use a commercial de-scaling agent and follow the instructions that
come with the agent.

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 appliance is switched off, cleaned and dried before storing.
2. Ensure that the assembled tea basket is securely attached to the magnetic jug post
within the Glass Jug.
3. Ensure that jug lid is securely in place.
