The Oskar Tea Maker is the brother of the eponymous Coffee Maker from Sowden. With the equally simple as genius SoftBrew method, Oskar makes digestible and aromatic tea. The design was coined by internationally renowned designer George Sowden, who produced the items himself in his own company Sowden.
The SoftBrew method of Oskar works as easy as it can be: tea leaves or bags are simply inserted in the filter of the jug; this one is then filled with hot water and then altogether has to steep a few minutes. Ready is the tea enjoyment!
The secret of SoftBrew is the special filter that has been developed by Sowden himself. The robust stainless steel filter does not only avoid blockings, it is also extremely fine. This makes it ideal for loose tealeaves. The advantage of loose tealeaves against bags is obvious: better tea quality, more selection, more taste, more enjoyment!
Also the envelope of the Oskar Tea Maker is full of clever ideas: the ergonomic shaped handle is empty so that it doesn’t get too hot when it brews. The shaping of the pouring cap ensures perfectly dozed and drip-free pouring. Moreover, all pieces of Oskar are dishwasher safe.
The shape of the Oskar tea maker reminds of a classic water kettle with its large belly. The larger amount of water will remain in the bottom of the flask, so that the balance is kept. The water movement inside of the tea maker is furthermore perfectly adapted for the tea brewing procedure.
Sowden offers the Oskar tea maker in two sizes with a capacity of 0.5 or 1 litre.Also in our blog:
