This unique item is called the Lu Yu Automatic Tea Brewer. It will arrive to you in its satin-lined gift box. It is a very different way to make and serve loose tea. Directions (from Devi Tea & included): Rinse the brewer with hot water. Place the filter chamber atop the pitcher. Put the desired amount of tea into the filter chamber of the brewer. Heat filtered or spring water to the correct temperature. Pour the heated water over the tea leaves. Repeat this step after the first pour has drained completely into the pitcher. When the pitcher is full, serve and enjoy your tea. Depending on the amount and quality of tea you use, you may want to refill the filter chamber several times with water. This well designed brewer allows you that option. The filter chamber is the piece that has the screen material in it. This part sits on the pitcher (which holds 12 ounces) while the tea steeps. When your tea is ready in the pitcher, the filter chamber (with lid) rests on the little cup. You will receive this, the directions and order forms in which to purchase teas from the original company. This item is brand new.
