Ultrasonic Tea-Making Machine


Maryland tea start-up Teamosa has developed a tea-making machine that uses ultrasonic extraction to create the perfect brew.

The technique – commonly used in the cannabis and petroleum industries, among others – uses high-frequency sounds to agitate particles and accelerate chemical reactions. In the Teamosa machine, this process extracts flavours and antioxidants from the tea leaves.

A Keurig-like capsule is inserted into the top section of the machine, which is then scanned to determine the correct heat and brewing time. Loose tea leaves can also be used – the time and temperature can be controlled manually. The machine also has an accompanying app that allows consumers to remotely set and control temperature, strength and cup size.

Currently being pushed by a Kickstarter campaign, the product is set to launch in September 2018.
