LifeHacker posts today about a neat way to brew tea, with the $19 ingenuiTEA teapot.

Here's the process and ingenuity part:

  • You place loose tea into the IngenuiTEA after either microwaving the water or pouring boiling water into it and let the tea steep and drift about freely.
  • When the steeping is complete, you simply lift the IngenuiTEA from the included coaster and place it atop your teacup. The pressure of cup against the bottom of the IngenuiTEA pushes up a small valve in the base and the brewed tea is released down into the cup.
  • The loose tea is kept in the IngenuiTEA by a small plastic screen in the bottom.
