Make Grundig the centrepiece of your modern tea rituals

You don’t have to be royalty to enjoy the perfect tea experience. In fact, home is the ideal place to enjoy tea because you can distance the delicious beverage and all of its benefits from the pomp and circumstance that makes traditional tea services stuffy. Rules are meant to be broken after all (and the Grundig TM 8280 W Tea Maker can help you do that).

Wakeup call tea ritual
Not everyone is a coffee person first thing in the morning. In fact, many people appreciate the gentler and longer lasting energy boosting effects that a steaming cup of green, gunpowder, or English Breakfast tea can deliver. Whether you’re routine-driven and want the same traditional cup of tea every morning, or like to try new varietals, the automatic brewing process of the Grundig TM 8280 W ensures your morning cuppa is brewed to perfection.

Also, though everyone loves the thought of savouring their cup silently and serenely, most likely it needs to be ready quickly and drunk on the go. That’s where Grundig’s program and temperature touch control comes in: there’s no guesswork when making your tea. You simply set the tea maker to your desired program and temperature and it will be ready when you are.

At-home afternoon tea party
To pull off a casual tea party at home, first you’ll need something new for your friends to try. You can get Darjeeling and Earl Grey anywhere. The at-home tea party is where you should sample new flavours, and with the Grundig’s 1.7-litre glass boiler and glass carafe there will be plenty for everyone. In 2016, floral teas like rose petal, lavender and jasmine infusions are particularly popular. Delicate teas like these do particularly well in the Grundig TM 8280 W, because of its large stainless steel tea strainer and gentle preparation.

Then, you’ll need to create the perfect setting. Though it’s tempting to host your event in the living room, consider the comfort of your guests. Do they really want to balance their cup and saucer on their knees? Setting high-tea in your dining area is non-negotiable. In a nod to tradition, ensure everyone has a cup, saucer, teaspoon and cloth napkin. To keep things informal however, present your sandwiches on serving trays made of industrial materials like natural wood or metal. They will suit the modern white surface, gentle curves and stainless steel detailing of the Grundig TM 8280 W to a tee.
