Worldwide People knows that the Germans are always on time. Time means a lot for us Germans and so we are not wondering about the big question about time while having a cup of tea.
I often got questions about the pouring time of tea. People often wonder that I have no answer for this question.
See, everybody love tea in a different way. For example me and Thirsty... Thirsty drinks her tea very strong without much fragrance, I love it soft and with much of the fragrance. Her pouring time is much higher than my is.
So it depends on your style, i just have the advice for you to try it out and find the best way suits for you. I often see watches on a tea table but I really feel uncomfortable with this style also with a scales.
I feel that all this machine makes my way of tea to static and no more flexible.
