I sometimes forget to get my tea when timer signal so when I go to get it the tea is to strong and I have to make new tea.
I was planning to buy a timer that lift the tea from the water but I got an idea that works.
First I boil the water.
Then I use my digital microwave oven, that have a rotating plate.
I set my micro to the lowest micro effect and put my high teacup or a high teapot,
with water up to half its height.
I put the cup or teapot on the edge of the rotating plate.
Then I add a string to the teabag/teaholder and use a suction cup on the opposite wall and attache the string so that the teabag/teaholder is hanging over the water.

Then I set the micro timer so that it run and stop at the same position.
When the micro now rotate the cup the teabag/teaholder will go up and down in the cup/teapot.
It work brilliant for me.
If you also forget your tea timer and have to throw away to strong tea and make new then try this.
It take some time to adjust the micro timer to get the right time so that it get its required time and then stop at the position where the teabag is over the water but when you have that time it is a great way to save tea and time.
What do you think?
Did you try it?
