Lipton Teamaker (E.C.T.) - The E.C.T. (easy tea) is exactly what it claims to be. The easiest and fastest way to make quality tea. All you do is slide it open, scoop up some tea and place it in water. The heating mechanism will activate itself once it contacts water. After boiling the water and checking for the correct temperature it opens the hatch to the strainer and starts the diffusion. Once this is finished it closes up again so the tea remains fresh without bitterness.
