There are a variety of tea maker type steeping appliances on the market today. Some of them are excellent and some of them you should just plain stay away from.
Some of the more popular tea makers are the Mr. Coffee version and the Salton, but we have found one that tops them both.
This is a dream machine when it comes to steeping tea. If you want a pot of tea on the go all day, and don't want to be reheating your tea, this is the machine for you. The reviews on this unit are excellent, and we have found it to be the best machine available in our trials.
Here is the overview:
Spoil the tea lovers on your list with the ultimate tea gadget. This wondrous appliance does it all - heats water, steeps leaves, and keeps tea warm to be enjoyed all day long.

Here are some consumer reviews:
I have looked for an automatic tea-maker for quite a while. Now that I have found the triniTea maker I am in heaven. It has made tea making a pleasure. Very easy to use and clean. And it is so nice to have the tea kept warm so that I do not have to reheat in the microwave! Thank you!"
I absolutely LOVE this tea maker!! The triniTEA tea-maker has single-handedly been the best purchase I have made all year. I will admit that I am one of those people who just seems to mess up temperatures and brewing times for all kinds of teas, but now I don't have to worry about it! I just put in the tea I am craving, add some water, push a few buttons, and walk away! The machine beeps once when it finishes heating the water and once again when it is done steeping the tea, and then gives a final succession of three beeps when it is finished emptying into the carafe and is ready to drink. Best of all, this tea maker brews four cups of tea and keeps them warm all day long so I can enjoy my tea whenever I want! If you like your tea really hot, burn the skin off of your tongue hot, then the tea-maker will not keep the tea in the carafe hot enough for you. If you enjoy lukewarm tea, then the tea maker will keep the tea in the carafe too hot for you. If you don't fall into either of those categories, the temperature of the tea left in the carafe should be fine all through the day. (Keep in mind that adding milk/cream will cool the tea down more.) I have had zero issues with the carafe spilling when pouring both fast and slow, with the lid on and off. The tea maker heats the water up fairly quickly- it seems to be around 5-10 minutes at full capacity. With my first attempt at working the tea-maker, I did find out that if all of the pieces are not properly put into place before turning the unit on, it will not release the tea into the brewing chamber. Just double check everything and you'll be fine- I haven't had any problems since. I DEFINITELY recommend this!!"
