some 70 years or more – who just have to be woken with a nice, hot cup of tea
in the morning – and who can blame you. Even if tea isn’t your thing and you
prefer a cup of (that new fangled) coffee in the morning, not to worry.
This modern, 21st century TEASMADE can make coffee too!
But you can’t get the Internet on it – just yet.

Setting for tea making and alarm
Since the tea making process takes a few minutes, the alarm/tea making time must be set
at least 10 minutes before the current time. Lift the cover and remove the filler cap by turning
it anti-clockwise. Use the pot to fill the tank. Note: The pot holds exactly the amount of water
the TEASMADE needs. Do not use any other vessel to fill the tank or there is a risk the tank
will over flow and pose a scalding hazard.
Replace the fil er cap firmly by turning it clockwise. Put 2 tea bags (or 2 teaspoons of instant coffee)
in the pot and replace the lid. Place the pot back into the TEASMADE so that it rests against the safety
switch. Note: the tea making process wil not work unless the pot is resting against the safety switch.

that it lights up. Once the alarm time has been reached the alarm will sound and the clock face
will flash. To stop the alarm either press the AUTOMATIC TEA button or simply remove the pot
from the TEASMADE. Note: the tea making process begins about 5 mins before the alarm
sounds. During the tea making process the TEA NOW button will illuminate briefly.
Tea now!
If you want the TEASMADE to make
tea now, we have equipped it with a handy
TEA NOW button! We hope you appreciate
the thought and effort we put into naming that
button. Fill the tank as described above, put
2 tea bags (or 2 teaspoons of instant coffee)
into the pot, place the pot back in the
TEASMADE, ensuring it is resting against
the safety switch. Press the TEA NOW button
and the tea making process will begin. The
cycle takes approximately 5 mins and finishes
with the traditional TEASMADE woosh as
the water is ejected into the pot from the tank.
To interrupt the tea making cycle press the
TEA NOW button again and the cycle wil stop.
If you require more tea, please wait a few minutes
between cycles to al ow the tank to cool.
