Tea is the ultimate tea companion. Learn about teas from all over the world with Tea's Encyclopedia, including preparation tips, signs of quality, tasting notes, harvest seasons and more. Brew the perfect cup every time with Tea's smart tea timer and note taker. Whether you're looking up what "Sencha" is when you're at a cafe or refining your oolong's steep time to perfection, Tea's got you covered. **Features** • Tea Encyclopedia: Learn about teas from all over the world with Tea's all-new Encyclopedia: where they're grown, how they're made, preparation tips, signs of quality, and more! Tea can now recognize over 500 tea names. • Tea to Try: Tea's Encyclopedia integrates with Reminders to allow you to create a list of teas to try. • Smart Tea Timer: Tea's terrific timer remembers your favorite brew times for each of your teas. • Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram Integration: With the tap of a button, you can have Tea share your tasting notes and photos with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. • Teapot Picker: Tea's teapot picker lets you choose which teapot you'll use to brew your tea, and can even automatically tell you how much tea you'll need for that teapot. • Notes and Rating System: After your timer is up, Tea lets you save tasting notes, take a photo and rate your brew. Tea even keeps track of your brewing time, tea amount, and temperature, so that you can hone in on the perfect brew for each of your teas. • Default Brew Suggestions: Not all teas are meant for use with boiling water. Tea comes pre-loaded with brew suggestions (temperature, time, leaf amount) for over 200 tea names and 12 tea types, all prepared by tea expert Thomas Smith. • Automatic Unit Conversion: Tea's Set Brew screen automatically converts units for you. If your tea's temperature instructions come in degrees Celsius, for example, Tea automatically converts it to Fahrenheit if that is your preferred unit. • Inventory Tracker: When you input a new tea, Tea automatically calculates how many brews you can make with that tea. Each time you use Tea's timer, Tea recalculates how many brews you have remaining. Be in full command of your tea inventory. • Multiple Infusion Support: Tea intelligently counts your tea infusions and preloads your notes with infusion number. • Shake to Shuffle: Can't decide on which tea to have? Simply give your iOS device a shake, and Tea will select one at random for you!



  • Inventory system is broken

    By Ziskala
    I wanted an app to track my tea inventory and remember what I liked drinking. This app almost lets me do that. My main issue is the app’s inventory and brew count seems to be completely broken. Every time I brew a cup of tea, it double counts my tea usage. If I put in .2 ounces used, it deducts .4 ounces from my inventory. It doesn’t help that the inventory amount seems to be wrong in the first place. When I try to input that I have 1 ounce of inventory, it changes that to .825663 ounces or some other random amount. There isn’t consistency on this error. Very disappointing.
  • New to tea

    By warrior58d
    I have recently gotten into learning about tea and I love the encyclopedia function and the ability to have and inventory of teas. I wish that the amount of tea in the inventory went down to 1 gram instead of starting at 10 since I have many sampler packs from teavivre. I still have to play with it some more but also wish that the brewing suggestions had specific gongfu instructions along with the western infusion method. Sometimes they are there but you really have to read into it. Also if you have F and C temperatures it would be nice to have ounces along with CC of water. Good app but think more could be done to justify 1.99 price.
  • Best Tea App for Serious Tea Drinkers

    By Happy User 99999999
    I’ve been using this app for years so before I updated my iOS devices to iOS 11 I had to resurrect my old old iPod Touch 4 to devote to this app. Now that the app has been updated I can use it on a device with a functional battery. Also, the encyclopedia is once again accessible. It has all the features that a serious tea drinker need. I can set up each variety of each tea I own e.g. an individual entry for each oolong. Then I can record the tea qty relative to the pot size and the app adjusts the qty for each pot i own. It remembers the time and temperature for each tea and then times each steep with the built in timer. I can adjust the brewing parameters for the next session which is helpful with new teas. Sometimes the features are hard to find, like adjusting the quantity of tea when you change the pot size, but they’re there and worth looking for.
  • Love it!

    It allows me to read up on the different types of teas at the Asian grocery store. I have found so many teas I like because of this app. I am so happy it has been updated. It works great now. THANK YOU!!!
  • Crashes every time I add notes

    By notetoself.net
    I purchased this as a tea journal. The interface is decent, but it crashes immediately after I type any character. I've reproduced this behavior many times without exception.

    Hi there! I like this app but I just bought it really for the encyclopedia as well but the button is not appearing at the bottom of my screen?? Just wondering if anyone else had this issue??
  • No encyclopedia?

    By daoofphoenix
    Seems like something is missing. Images in the App Store shows an encyclopedia in this app for tea types. The version I downloaded has no encyclopedia button or encyclopedia as shown in the market here.
  • I lovED This app .. But now...

    By 711012
    WAS An excellent app before they decided to remove the tea encyclopedia. Worked for me great in a trip to Japan , but now without the feature its kind of useless
  • Very disappointed

    By Laphroaig77
    No Encyclopedia included which is the reason I paid for it. Just a glorified tea timer. Don't waste your money.
  • Please fix!
