Gong-Go Product Review – Teavana Perfect Teamaker

Gong-Go Rating:


Results: The ease, convenience, and cost “made” this product stand out, but its future production is currently unknown & due to a lack of response from Starbucks I can only give it four stars.

Vendor:  Teavana

(right now I can only find available on Amazon.com)

Product Name: Perfect Teamaker

Purchase Date: 2010


This little beauty is where my Gong-Go journey all began back in 2010 when I started working for Teavana. I’ve been using this Perfect Teamaker daily for eight years now as shown by its brown patina. It no longer looks pretty but it still does one heck of a job. It’s been relegated to only black teas and I promise unless you scrub regularly (which I don’t) your’s too will take on some color. As far as flavor goes, I’ve tested with ceramic teapots and have noticed no difference. However, I wouldn’t put a delicate white or green tea in here. That said, I intentionally used this obviously cherished bottom-dispensing infuser so that you can see I’m here to present years of trial, error, and experience.


I honestly cannot brag enough on what a great product this is for Gong-Go flash-fusion brewing. You put your tea in, add water, set the timer and then place it on your cup. Its great for any occasion from getting a cup to-go or the office. For Gong-Go its a MUST HAVE!  Not only is it convenient and easy to use but durable. As you can see, I’ve put this puppy through its paces and its still works perfectly (even if it doesn’t look so hot). You can see what a new one looks like below.   If you want one, get it NOW on Amazon. Teavana stores are no more (thanks Starbucks). I’ve sent them an email requesting the production status of this product. I’ve heard some rumors that many Teavana products will make it into grocery stores eventually, but they’ve yet to get back to me –  I’ll update this page when I do.
