Teavana Cell Phone App: Perfect Tea Touch is Almost Perfect
Recently I discovered Teavana has a cell phone app called “Perfect Tea Touch.” It is available for both the iPhone and Android phones. This app’s features include a tea blender for finding Teavana teas to mix, store locator, online shop, favorites list, and tea timer.
If you shop at Teavana frequently, this app is a must have! It will make finding teas and mixing Teavana teas much easier for you. Even those who don’t buy tea from Teavana as frequently may find some of the tools useful. Although the “Tea Blender” only suggests Teavana teas, they can give you ideas for similar teas you have. But hey, maybe you will find something new worth trying!
The tea timer covers the whole spectrum with presets for white, green, oolong, black, herbal, rooibos, mate, and blooming tea. The only downfall is you have to leave it on the timer screen when waiting for your tea to steep or else it won’t alert you. This is not a major problem because almost every cell phone has a built in timer. It is still great as a quick reference for steeping tips. It even includes instructions for iced tea!
Hmmm, maybe in a future update they will enable the timer to alert you even if the app is running in the background. Then, would Teavana’s app have the ultimate cell phone tea timer?
