Out of the timers I've tried this is my favourite. I [email protected]#$%! had a bit more customization like changing tea in a mug to a kettle or similar. I also want it was a bit more polished but I still bought the add to help a developer that created something I use frequently.
I've been using this application for a while. I love it! It's customizable and you can add in your own times for various teas. Definitely a fan. I to take off the ads not because the ads bother me, but because I wish to help the creators.
I love this app. It's easy, informative, and does exactly what I need it to. My only complaint is that there's no method to adjust the volume of the melody that plays when the tea is done. I want the volume was independent of the phone volume.
I was a bit discouraged at first because several of the info like steep time and temp were various than what I usually do for my teas. BUT, I learned that I could create my own custom timer for any tea that I wanted. For instance, I love Black Tea and Fruit Tea, so I was able to build a timer with temperatures and steep times specific to that tea. Beautiful cool feature.
Would be a 5 if it didn't require tapping the begin button to begin the already started application. Response doesn't address the issue. If I happen to wish to brew another kind of tea - which happens fairly often, I have to press the begin button to begin the already started application.
I love it. It has a amazing look and vibe very simple to use with lots of options but I want you could set mutable timers often times I create tea for my dad or mates and it will go on at various times or is a various type of tea and I feel like that should be very useful. Thank you.
Am I the only one who doesn't see a resource page anywhere in this book? All I see is page after page of source citations but no page or paragraph of where to some of these more esoteric herbs.
I am always searching for a more natural method to improve my health, without having to fill a prescription, or pop an over the counter medication. One of my goals in life is to navigate my method through it medication free. I am inspired by some octogenarians that I know of, who don’t take any medications regularly. I believe that most everything we need can be found in what we consume, whether to thin or thicken your blood, improve digestion, prevent bladder infections, and on and on… I do believe that what we ingest should contribute more to healthcare than chemically based medications. Jennifer Browne’s The Amazing Living Tutorial to Medicinal Tea: 50 Ways to Brew the Cure for What Ails You is just what I have been searching for to give me the tools and info I need to support me stay on this path. She has condensed a amazing of info in an simple to read and understand format that I will use on a everyday basis. I love this book!
this is a attractive book, lovely pictures, massive paper, clear instructions. a lot of tea blend recipes for specific ailments. i gave it four stars because the author does not give the medicinal properties of the herbs used. used with "Healing Teas", by marie nadine antol, ( which give the properties of all the herbs she mentions) a very amazing idea of the what and why of easy medicinal teas become apparent i use these books and will be buying them for bonus sets..

I WILL UNINSTALL ANY APP THAT HAS THAT FAST CONSTANT FLASHING, NO MATTER HOW GOOD,OR HOW MUCH I LIKE THE APP!!!!... Don.
This story invites the listener to have fun the absurd in the natural, true environment of home, when a tiger comes to visit for tea. It is amusing, exciting, ridiculously delicious and fun for all who hear it, reader or listener. Most enjoyable and I often give it as a gift.
Adorable book ! Read it to my 4 year old Grand daughter. She loved it, I loved it. I was a @#$%!&oked up with emotion at the end, thinking that hopefully, we all will experience someone fresh and unexpected in our lives. Someone who created our life a bit happier and magical, even if only for a short time. Someone we will always remember with amazing fondness and never give up hope of seeing again.
I love Downton Abbey and I love having afternoon tea. I live in the US now so I don't have it as often as I did but occasionally I'll place on a tea for my American mates and it always goes down well. Despite being steeped in the tradition, and thinking I knew all there is to know, I learned quite a few things from this book as well as getting some fresh (old) fun recipes named after the characters in the show. Full of interesting information, this book is a amazing read for those who love England, afternoon tea or Downton Abbey.
Very disappointing. I gave it 2 stars due to tea-related info I learned. Other than that, it is a very expensive book for recipes and no pictures or illustrations. Very expensive for what you obtain on the coattails of Downton Abbey. Not recommended.
I bought this book partly because I love the show, and partly because I'm a tea freak. I also was hoping to find, at long last, a recipe for scones that wouldn't come out like sinkers. Well, I found it, but only after a amazing of effort and a small bit of ingenuity. The measurements are given in British baking measurements, ounces instead of cups, both liquid and dry. After translating them, I ended up with a mixture the consistency of cake batter, not the important dough-like mixture.Undaunted, I began adding flour and sugar in random amounts until I got something resembling dough. I place them in the oven with small expectation that they would be edible. Surprisingly they were. I decided to test to search out what went wrong with the recipe. After consulting another cookbook specially for tea cakes. I own four. I realized that one of the measurements given, the one for milk, was incorrect.If you plan on using the recipe for scones in this book, it should be noted that the milk should be 2 ounces, not the 5 ounces given. I since repeated the recipe with the corrected milk measurement, and the scones were perfect. So I'm thrilled after so a lot of failed attempts to recreate the scones I had in Ireland a lot of years ago. But the book is not a quality product, it's poorly place together, and has typos and incorrect recipes.
If the reader can rise above the several syntactical, orthographic, and grammatical errors, this is a cute small book. The writer appears to have done considerable research on her topic and presents her work in a lively and engaging manner. The recipes sound quite yummy and a read through of the book created my mouth water!However, several pecular mis-cues and uses of not-quite-right formulaic phrases, spacing errors and obvious proofreading lapses create me wonder if the author's first language is perhaps not Fellow badly needs an editor for her book and should she be fortunate enough to publish a second edition or a second book, it is fervently to be hoped that she secures the talents of one so that her work can be presented in the best possible light.
There were errors and incomplete instructions for some of the recipes, ended up finding amazing recipes for online, only bought because I required Downton Abby Recipes for an event, want I hadn’t wasted my on this cook book. This Executive Chef does not approve. And shame on the publishers for not catching the errors before it went to print.
I bought it because of all the amazing reviews, which I realize now must have been for. I am starting to trust Amazon reviews less and less. This is NOT a book, but a booklet. What a waste of amazing money. No photos, no illustrations - AND NO RECIPE DIRECTIONS! Each "recipe" is simply a list of ingredients and nothing more. There is no true info on tea or Downton Abbey. No wonder this is an "unofficial" guide! "Scam" would have been the word I would have chosen. Twelve bucks for a booklet that borders on leaflet-status which one might search on a display rack at a hotel lobby!!!!! I will NEVER forget the name of "Elizabeth Fellow", so I will never from this scammer again! This is not as advertised at all.
Illustrations or images would have been nice for those who don't know what the final product should look like or how they should be served or arranged. Recipes are easy and tasty. A word of explanation about various flours and sugars and pastry tins would have helped. Still nice choices.
Please note this is a review of the Kindle edition as it appears on the Kindle Paper White, not the printed ere is a issue with contrast of the font. It is too light and it blends into the background, I have tried to change the brightness of my Kindle paper white and also tinkered with the fonts and size. Nothing works. All my other books are display fine. Please fix this problem. The book is unreadable in this state.
I quite enjoyed the handful of pages at the beginning that described the history and custom of authentic English tea rituals, but the book was beautiful much useless to me beyond that. I successfully completed one recipe- drop scones- but I had difficulty because all the instructions called for weighing out ounces of ingredients instead of measuring by cups, like I'm used to. So if you live anywhere but the US, I'm sure you'll have fun this book. Otherwise, you might have difficulty with the unfamiliar ingredients called for and the various method of measuring things. It's also much thinner than I anticipated, but I suppose that's reflected in the price.
The book itself is of questionable value but my main complaint is the price. $10.00 (rounding up the penny) is ridiculous. It is worth only about half is very shallow in content. The history tea is interesting but very limited. No mention of any of the varieties sold as Afternoon or Garden Party type tea. Why not? They are created for teatime e recipes are okay but need better editing. I can search most online. All this book does is slap a Downton Abbey name on a common recipe. Rip off!! I do like that both US and metric e physical book itself is very slim and lightweight. There are no images except the beautiful cover. The paper is decent quality but overall this book is very flimsy.If this book cost $5 instead of $10 I would have given it two more stars..
Although I've never seen the TV show, I've been to Amazing Britain several times. I definitely want I had read this book before traveling there! It contains the history of tea time, the customs, defines terms and gives numerous tea time recipes. What a jewel!
I have been doing tea wrong for years. e title is a small misleading, as this book also covers how tea is cultivated, the classifications and regional variants and the info of also tells you how to create said teas, based on the region and type of tea you ry helpful.
People think I am weird fir getting a book on how to create tea. They laugh at me and "say you don't know how to create tea?" Yes I do know how to make, however I do know that various teas require various temperatures etc. I was also interested in the history of tea and how I plant can create such a vast array of teas. This book covers it all. (I hope, haven't finished it yet, but so far so good.)
