It would be nice if Adagio would offer a digital, battery operated tea timer. You could set it so that it would ring when the steeping time is done.

I know that these are available in many locations but one with an Adagio logo would be nice. :D

If you are a Palm Pilot user you don't have to buy it, simply download TeaPot for free.

I would love to try that but unfortunately my Palm Pilot is for work only purposes. :cry:

But thank you for the info!

Huh? What do you mean? Is there a lock on your PDA or is it some corporate guideline? If it were a guideline and I were in your shoes, hell, I'd do it anyway...

Anyway, I've always used the microwave's kitchen timer to time teas. Of course, they're not always available. But usually...

I finally got the Tea Timer to work on my PC at work! :D I'm going to download it at home tonight on my PC.

There are a few timer programs for the Palm OS. Take a look around and see what else is available. IIRC, the TeaPot program is rather large because of the animations included in the executable. I tend to use TikTok for my timing purposes -- you can define up to 32 timers (4 pages of 8 timers), set for just about any time you want. Put in whatever your favorite tea times are and it's about the same as the TeaPot one, but I'm pretty sure it's smaller. I think that 1TouchTimer is really small, like a few kB, and lets you set whatever time you want (one at a time) with hour, minute, and second bars. Like I said, look around. I find almost all of my Palm programs at http://www.freewarepalm.com/

P.S. -- If having a *tea* timer would look bad at work, try one of these other, more generically named programs. And look for an excuse to time something at work, so you have a reason for putting a timer program on your PDA. ;)

I've a PocketPC though, not a palm!

That said, I would really love a sand-based tea timer - which would have to be preset with 3 different glasses for 3 min, 5 min, and 7 min.

Yes, I'm a nerd.

I think that a sand based tea timer is a neat idea and a pretty one too.

The problem for me is that I need a ring when the time is up.

Now that is a very good point.

This tea timer:

posted by marz910 is definately neat, but I think it'd be even better if Adagio offered ones with three different colors of sand (black/red, green, and white) set for 5min, 3min, and 7min, respectively - to match up with the usual brewing times of those kinds of teas.

Also, I would love an Adagio electronic tea timer. I have an electronic timer that I use, but I'd really like to have one from Adagio that's just for tea, so that I can have a timer that people don't lose in the kitchen during the making of dinner.
