You should try to use best loose leaf tea for your health as well as easy to lose. The polyphenols of green tea strongly restrict cyst cells, DNA activity, peroxide revolutionary generation and growth of melanoma cells. In addition, it ruins the prevailing cancer cells without damaging healthy areas.

Seems to me that you would treat it exactly like a coffee maker, put loose tea into container for tea, pour water into the machine and turn on, you may want to get a filter that is called The Forever filter at Walmart for easy cleaning and no use of paper filters,

Instructions

    • 1
      Open the top of the machine and remove the bean-shaped brewing filter and the brewing basket below it. Remove the carafe.

    • 2
      Fill the carafe with coldHow do you use Tea Drop by Sunbeam I need directio - icon1.png water (never use hot or warm water; your tea will suffer). Pour the water from the carafe into the reservoir on the back of the Tea Drop. Use the reservoir gauge on the side of the machine to add enough water for the desired amount of tea.


    • 3

      Place the carafe back in its place on the heating plate. Fill your brewing filter with one teabag or 1 teaspoon of loose leaves per cup of tea. For herbal teas, double the amount to attain the desired tea strength. Place the basket and filter back inside the machine and close the lid.

    • 4
      Choose "strong", "Regular" or "Mild" from the buttons on the front of your machine. The stronger the brew, the longer the tea will take to brew. Choose "Mild" for herbal and white teas. "Regular" works well for green and Oolong. You may choose any setting for black, but "Strong" works well for morning teas like English, Irish or Scottish Breakfast.

    • 5
      Wait until the machine is finished brewing. Pour yourself a cup of tea and sweeten as desired.

SOURCE: I don't have a manual

I had the same problem as mine was given to me without the instructions, but its very simple to use. You just open the top of it, remove the little tea basket and the basket holder. Next you want to fill the little pot to the desired amount of ounces and then poor it down into the tea maker. never go past the fill line that's etched inside cause you will be cleaning up water from everywhere! Next, put the pot on the heated plate and put the tea basket and holder back in place. Put your chosen tea in the little basket and then close the top of the tea maker. It will start to brew the tea now. Always have your pot in place before closing the top, otherwise the tea will start brewing all over the hot plate. you'll probably hear this crackling popping sound, and that's just the tea maker heating and pushing the heated water through the machine. Once the tea maker has stopped crackling and popping and is no longer dripping, the tea is ready. When you get done using it, run a full pot of water through the machine to clean it. Repeat until water comes out clear. Also clean your basket and holder and occasionally you're gonna want to clean the part where the tea drips from the maker into the pot. You just reach under and pull it out, clean it and replace it. It just slides right out and back in. Tea can stain it and build up there, so you definitely want to clean that. Be really careful because it gets really hot, and releases lots of steam if you happen to open it while its brewing for some reason. Occasionally you will need to clean the inside of the actual tea maker. When you do this, make sure it is unplugged. Make sure not to get the hot plate wet. Clean with soapy water and carefully rinse it out. there's a little rubber stopper inside at the back of it and you want to take it out while cleaning and put it back when you're done. Once you've gotten it all cleaned and rinsed out, run a few pots of water through it, and if there's nothing in the machine or pot, it should be clean. If there is, carefully rinse the inside of the machine out again, then run a pot of water through again. If there's still stuff in the machine, just keep repeating til the water and machine are clear. I cant stress enough to be careful because of the electrical parts and you don't want to ruin the machine. Just take your time and be careful. Hope this was helpful!

Replacement pot


The absolute BEST place I ever found to get anything like that is Ebay. We had an EXPENSIVE coffee pod coffeemaker & my grandma put an electric skillet over the drip tray, thereby warping it to oblivion. I had given up saying anything long before & began just cleaning up after her mishaps. I went to Ebay and was thankful to find another at a really great price because it was used. (The market was filled with new ones & the home page for the maker of this coffeemaker had none in stock; kind of a hint that they got tired of carrying them so they Ebayed them to clearance them out, I think. However they were MUCH more expensive than this used one.) $8 later you can't tell a thing happened. If you can't find what you want the first time keep looking. People post new things every day!

"Tea Drop" manual


It's December, so you may not still be looking, but you put in 1 tea bag in each side for 1/2 pot of tea, or 2 tea bags in each side for a full pot. If you are using loose tea (tastes better - I just buy Lipton), then you put in 1 Tablespoon in each side for a 1/2 pot and 2 Tablespoons in each side for a full pot. Hope this helps!

Black is a "designer" color, and is much more desirable in decor. Not a good answer, but it's true....accordianman

Will not despense tea


Brew vinegar through it. Stop the brewing cycle halfway through and let it sit overnight. Should work better.
