Podcast 026: Teforia

my japanese green tea podcastThere’s been a lot of excitement in the tea world regarding the Teforia infuser.

I haven’t seen it in action yet, but I managed to land this interview with Allen Han, Teforia’s founder.

This device has a lot of potential, I think that it will become very popular in the near future.

In case that you want to see the infuser in action, here’s a short video:

    Buying tea pods from this company seems like an attempt to create another Keurig (which we all know to be evil and corporate monster that creates monopoly). To me real intentions of this company are not discussed and this company should not sell pods. At the begging Keurig also offered possibility to refill their own pods and the question is when will teaforia stop offering that. I don’t like it and it seems pretty sneaky to try it.

    Hi Nikola,

    We understand the reference to Keurig, and in terms of simplicity and convenience in using the machine, it’s accurate. Teforia, however, is very different from Keurig in three important ways: 1. Our tea pods are made from completely recyclable paper pulp, 2. We are an open system, so you can use your own loose leaf teas with Teforia–no need to purchase our tea pods to use the device, and 3. We are very conscious of our environmental footprint and work with only organically-sourced teas and artisanal tea farmers.

    Seriously ?

    1) Nobody should need to buy pods to make tea. Why would anybody believe that you will be any different than Keurig. You are less greedy? I don’t think so.

    2) So was Keurig and now they are ripping people off just like you are trying with $700 machine. Any company was able to make pods but now that they have monopoly, they installed systems that can allow only their pods to brew.

    3) How much per lb of organic tea? There are many organic, fair trade and kosher tea companies. Why would anybody buy from machine making company?
