Looked great, but asking for $649 up front for a pre-order = nope
Nicolas Nemni@nicolasegosum · Software Product Manager
@ow Agree.
Matthew Spurr@matthewspurr · Quuu.co
@ow Defo agree with Owen, I like my tea, but the amount of decent standard tea I could buy for that money makes it hard to justify this product as an individual consumer. BUT if a tea emporium or coffee shop bought this and made a feature of it then it'd probably do well with the regularly consuming connoisseurs :-) cool product nice work chaps!!

I can't even afford this if I was a millionaire
Matthew Barby@matthewbarby
@ow that is a WILD price.

Beautiful product, but that price tag... ouch! I'm passionate about tea, but that's insane. I also felt like the landing video failed to really deliver any meaningful information that would have encouraged me to buy. Lots of focus on the beauty, but very little of the function behind it. (It's out of my price range anyway; I felt like I went overboard and splurged on that Breville one-touch of mine!)

I think the mistake here is that this is really more of a piece of functional art, rather than a practical appliance (which is how they are marketing it). Great GIF though.

I saw the video and, as a tea fan, was like "WOW! That is incredible!", then I saw the price. :/

@fepacheco We hear you, Felipe. Making the ultimate tea infuser is not an easy task. We've spent years crafting the Teforia, making absolutely zero compromises along the road to ensure our infuser is incredibly functional and beautiful. From the custom boiler that heats water on-demand to within 0.5 degrees of accuracy, so the temperature is always right, to the vacuum-sealed double-layer carafe and infusion globe that are both beautiful to look at and extremely functional for keeping your tea the perfect temperature. Also, we've taken great care in traveling the world and working with tea growers and masters on our infusion process so we can brew the richest, most natural tea like the growers and masters truly intended. See the results of a blind taste test here:
Once you see and understand the details that have gone into every Teforia, we hope you'll appreciate our no-compromise approach and the resultant cost.
